    I understand - but now the only way to do it is with the AU - and a factory reset is the best way to go.

    Here are the answers to your questions:


    1.  Cat5e cables are fine for your use - Cat6 are the best but more expensive.

    2.  To set up the Extreme wirelessly is more involved so it is up to you.

    3.  I checked your model # and it should work fine.

    4.  If there is a firmware update do it.

    5.  Do a factory reset as I have suggested - don't try to use the old network.

    6.  I can give you wireless instructions but the installation is up to you.


    If you want all new technology and you want to stay with Apple, then I would recommend a new Extreme or Express  - Apple provides 90 days of support on these products.
