    As can be seen in the above "Overview," AirPort Extreme does not include any cord other than the power cord.

    Your modem came with an Ethernet cable for connecting the modem to a router or computer. Disconnect your computer from your modem's Ethernet cable and replace it with the Extreme. Turn on your computer's wireless and choose to join the Extreme's wireless network.

    If your computer is not capable of wireless, you'll need another Ethernet cable to connect it to the Extreme. Repeat for each non-wireless computer you connect. If you have more than three, you'll also need an Ethernet switch to increase the number of ports that can provide access to your network.
