Can I use my old Flying Saucer base station to extend the wifi network of my 5th Gen AirPort Extreme?


I can't seem to get the Aiport Utility to allow this.


I have the Extreme set up to create a wireless network and allow the network to be extended.  I set the old Flying Saucer base station to extend the range of the AirPort Extreme, but I get an error after I type in the wireless network name.  It says "There was an error setting up this AirPort wireless device for WDS. Quit AirPort Utility and try again."


Any thoughts?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)
