Ok, thanks for clarifying.
Let's double-check your extended network configuration.
o Temporarily connect both the MacBook and the 802.11n AirPort Express Base Station (AXn) directly to an available LAN (opposing-arrows) port of the 802.11n AirPort Extreme Base Station (AEBSn) for the setup phase. Once done, move them to their desired locations.
o Open AirPort Utility and select the AEBSn.
o Choose Manual Setup from the Base Station menu.
o Click AirPort in the toolbar, and then click Wireless.
o Choose “Create a wireless network” from the Wireless Mode pop-up menu, and then select the “Allow this network to be extended” checkbox.
o Next, select the AXn, and choose Manual Setup.
o Choose “Extend a wireless network” from the Wireless Mode pop-up menu, and then choose the network (the one created by the AEBSn) you want to extend from the Network Name pop-up menu.
o Enter the base station network and base station password is necessary.
o Click Update to update the base station with new network settings.
(ref: Page 46 of "Designing AirPort Networks Using AirPort Utility.)
OK, so I tried tis for the third and final time at the weeknd and was told every time that "this network cannot be extended" when I try to connect the Express to the Extreme network. When I switch over to the Extreme the settings say that the network is extendable and when I look at the network I am on before opening the airport utility it shows the network created from the Extreme. Wehn I am setting up the Express, the Extreme network is visible in the drop down but it still will not allow me to extend the network! Any other ideas?
There are lots of discussions that are close, but my desire is to use my Time capsule (non simultaneous ) and my Airport express (new) to make TWO wireless stations, with different passwords, sharing the same public IP that is attached to my TC. I want to share the network with a neighbor.
I don't want to look at his stuff, and I don't want him to see my lan. I have not been able to separate them. Each can see the other. How can I set up two wireless networks, using the same TC as a base station, with the Express ethernet wired to one to the ethernet ports on the TC?
