I have recenly upgraded my broadband service and now have a wireless router. My old network configuration was a router connected by ethernet cable to an Airport Extreme base station which then broadcast my wireless network (I also had an Airport Express base staion set up as a wi-fi booster elswhere in the house).


I now have two networks (my original network and the new network from the wireless router) and wish to amalgamate these into one.


Ideally I wish to use the Airport Extreme base station as the "remote" booster (I have purchased Powerline adapters for this purpose) but don't know how to configure the Airport Extreme base station in order to to this.


Can you advise on the best set up for this please?


My Mac is running OS X 10.8.2 and the Aiport untility is version 6.1.


Thanks in anticipation.
