I've purged PC set up & wifi belkin router.
I got airport extreme & brand new entry level(599.00) Mac mini.
Wireless seems to be going well, cause ive got really faster wifi for my iPad & ATV. BUT my mini has the little white light on but the big light above it will not light up & the only thing on the monitor is the action video showing me where to turn on the wireless keyboard. I've got time Warner highspeed Internet modem- with apple extreme hooked to it- then I've got Mac mini hooked to the extreme.

Any HELP.. Any help at all would be surely app

Your best bet is to contact an Apple Provider for help.

Just so you know:

The "big light above" (I assume you're referring to the logo on the top of the mini?) - DOESN"T light up - it's only MacBooks that do that!
