Ok, a few problems here.  I have the latest 5th generation Airport Extreme that I just replaced from a 2nd gen. one.  Now this 5th gen Extremen is hard wired into my cable modem which is 15 meg download speed.  I also purchased the Airport Express to extend the coverage.  Where I am confused is the extreme is in the basement and the express is upstairs and honestly I am not noticing any difference than when I had the 2nd gen extreme only.  Down the hall upstairs where this new express is the wifi signal is weak and not sure why because the express is only 25 feet away.  What am I doing wrong here?  I go into Airport Utiltiy and both devices are recognized.  Is there a different way I should be hooking this up?  I just expected much better performance.  Please let me know what I can do.  Thanks
