OK so I will keep it short. I want to know if I should purchase one of the 2 to extend my wifi? I want to us my e4200 in the mix. if I go with the extreem I will place that off of my modem and feed my network and place my e4200 in a different room for better signal for wifi. I will also use it to extend to the old express N. Or should I save money and buy a new express to hard wire it and extend off of the e4200, with also extending it to the old express. Please help on this.

Thanks

    Hi - to have a true roaming network I would recommend taking the Linksys out of the mix completely - Apple products are designed to work with other Apple products - see this link for a comparison of the Apple base stations - http://www.apple.com/wifi/ - but whichever one you choose, be sure to use the new Apple router as the primary router attached to the modem and use the older Express to extend the network..

    No problem - I understand your wanting to keep the Linksys in this situation - your Linksys-->express or extreme-->old express hookup is appropriate in your case.

    Regards,

    Thanks for the update - I am not familiar with your audio setup but it sounds like your workaround works - maybe one of the gurus can help you out - enjoy.
