Hi, actually my AP configuration is as follows:

The first AP "AirPort Express Sala" creates the wireless network (name "Sala") while the second AP "AirPort Express Cucina" extend it, everything is working as usual (in Apple world!) but I'm just wondering if it's possible to setup the second AP with a static IP address (I prefer to use it in my network configuration), what I see in the configuration panels of the second AP is as follows:

As you can see actually it's configured via DHCP, the strange thing is that I tried to setup as static but simply it doesn't work, after some time AP disappears from network configuration and I've to start from scratch (enabling wi-fi on my iMac).


Any ideas ?


Thanks, regards, Roberto.
