    Here is what I have..

    Cable Modem
    Apple Airport (the large one No hard drive)
    Ethernet cable
    iMac

    I am on day 7 of trying to get this set up and I am at my wits end.

    What do I need to have on and off?.. in what sequence do I plug in my cables? .. and what do i need to do with Airport Utility?

    All the information you need should be here. Is there a specific problem you're having?

    try doing a hard reset of the Airport. I believe there is a small button on the back that you need to use a pin to press in. Unplug the airport, and press in the button and plug in while pressing the button.

    It should show up in Airport Utility
