The g/b Base is configured as bridge and advertizes another network name to keep separate from the main N network. The Express N is configured as an extension of the main base station (a WDS in b/g speak), so it is in fact bridged. It cannot be otherwise as there is no wired connection between the two.
I'm getting a similarly odd reaction out of my new Airport Express N; when I replaced my AX (G) with it, and switched to an all N Network, I had these odd starts and stops of data.
Specifically, I have them configured in WDS, and have a slingbox plugged into the ethernet port of the AX(N). When I had it plugged into the AX(G), the resulting video from the slingbox was smooth. When I switched them, I would get higher speeds, but in bursts, and it cased the Slingplayer software to glitch out.
On a utterly separate note, I'd like to know if WDS is what I should be doing; my wife has an older WinXP laptop with b/g, and I have an MBP (n). Keeping in mind I need the AX(G or N) to provide a wireless bridge back to the AEBS for the Slingbox, how should I be set up? Roaming or WDS? If either, will AirTunes still work?
