If you want to connect the Airport Base Station directly to the internet you can
do Network Address Translation ( NAT ) on the Base Station.

If you use the Base Station as Bridge you have to masquarade with you firewall.
should work because you have only the net ( no difference between wire and wireless )

Search for Airport Java Configurator on Google.

With the Java Configurator it should be easy to configure the base station.

Hope I could give you some hints.
