Can anyone explain how to create a network between two Macs, iPads, Apple TV, and other iDevices using an AE base station without Internet? Is this possible?

I want to share files between the computers via Airdrop and display iPad content on a TV using the Apple TV.

Yes, its possible.

Set the Airport up to do DHCP and NAT. It will complain about the lack of internet connection but it should still allow you to connect everything else to each other.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Thanks, I will try that as soon as I complete my office. I notice that you have a PowerMac G4 MDD, one of my favorite machines ever!
