I have an Apple Airport extreme that I'd like to use to extend a network. Is there any way to do this with the upstream hub/router knowing that I have more than one computer connected?

i.e. I want to plut the Airport Extreme into a CAT5 cable from my router. Then share that connection wirelessly. But I don't want the hub to know that there's more than one computer connected as there's a limit to the number of connections.

Thanks Guy

Where does the limit come into play? Is it an ISP thing? –  JoshP Oct 4 '12 at 13:12
    
Your hub would be unware of any devices connnected to your Airport. –  Ramhound Oct 4 '12 at 13:15
    
@Ramhound The hub would be aware the same way that carriers detect tethering, namely TTL values. The question is whether or not it's looking for it. –  Darth Android Oct 4 '12 at 14:34
