supermarcie, Welcome to the discussion area!
I'm guessing that you have the AirPort Express (AX) configured to join a wireless network. In this mode the AX is connecting just like any other wireless client and is not wirelessly extending the network.
The bad news is that the AX can not wirelessly extend the network provided by the D-Link because the D-Link is not compatible with Apple's WDS.
uh-oh... now I'm concerned. I have a Corega wireless router and I'm trying to have my Airport express connect to it...
I'm having the same problem a lot of people are experiencing:
I want it to join my network and I go through the airport utility until it says the configuration is successful and it must restart.
Then it never restarts because it says it can't find the device....
No that device doesn't support Apple's WDS either.
Where can I find a complete list of devices which are supported for extending the wireless network?
- 3com OfficeConnect ADSL Wireless 11g Firewall Router model 3crwdr100a-72 but ONLY with NO encryption
- Belkin F5D7230-4 and F5D7231
- BT Voyager 2091 or 2100
- Buffalo WGR-G54
- Linksys WRT54G or WRT54GS (not latest versions v5)
- Netgear WGR614 v6
- SMC (one model - don't know the model number)
- Thompson 585v6 wireless router (40 bit WEP works but stronger encryption does not)
