What are you trying to do with the older 802.11g AirPort Express Base Station (AX)? That is, are you trying to extend the newer 802.11n Express base station's wireless range or to add the older AX for iTunes streaming?

I'm trying it the other way around. 802.11g is my current home network and is wired to the modem. I want to use the new one (802.11n) for iTunes streaming (my older station has no audio output), but the only way I'm being able to do so is by creating a new network (no internet), and I'd like to have both options within the same connection.

Please check out the following Apple Support article for details on how to configure an AirPort Express Base Station (AX) for iTunes streaming.

Just went through the article. It made me realize my older station is Airpot Extreme 802.11g (not Express). As I'm trying to change its settings I don't find the option to Extend The Network, I also find that for Radio Mode, it only gives me the following options:
Is this AExtreme 802.11g so old that I won't get it to communicate with the new AX 802.11n? Or is there anything else I could try to make them work as an extedend network?

When mixing AirPorts (802.11n & 802.11g), the only option for extending their wireless network is via a Wireless Distribution System (WDS). Please check out the following Apple Support article for details on setting up this type of network.

Hm. Didn't work. I'm trying to make The new Airport Express 802.11n (2nd Generation) my remote or relay Base Station, but it requires the new version of Airport Utility. This new version doesn't seem to recognize my Extreme Base Station (802.11b/g), which I need as my Main Base Station. In turn my Extreme Base Station requires Airport Ulilty 5.6, which doesn't recognize Airport Express (2nd generation).
Any other ideas?
