    No internet is needed to create a functioning network and to share files, etc. However, an internet connection is needed if you want to be able to surf the web, check email, etc. In short, buying this fancy new router does not eliminate the need to have an ISP (cable, DSL) internet connection if you want to have a network capable of accessing the internet.

  • Absolutely not. Without internet you will still have a fully functioning wireless network that enables connections between 50 wireless and wired users and devices.

  • The AirPort Extreme Base Station does not originate internet service. If you want internet, you must provide for it and add it to your network.
