I've got a large house and I wantto have only one network wifi, so I need to have 2 or 3 airport station, but to get a good wifi signal I want to have them connected via ethernet to the main routeur, then each of the wifi base station will give ip address to the area it is installed.
Is it clear ?
I can't see now the ethenet connection in the airport utility.
An idea ?
On the second express, make sure the ethernet is going from one of the Lan ports on the first, into the Wan port of the second. Then, re-set it up to properly extend the network.
You may be selecting the wrong options, so it's best to use iOS 5 and let IT predict the proper settings for you (generally it does a pretty good job).
I just hope your extremes are not those saucer type units.
Set up your Wi-Fi network with your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac.
It's a nightmare... When i use the ethernet cable from the main base station going to the express one i'm loosing internet connection... Both airport are green, but no internet...
If i unplug the ethernet cable internet come back...
Should have a conflict somewhere but can't figure out.
Is it compatible to have an airport extrem 4th generation linked to an airport extrem 1st generation via ethernet ?
Sorry to add that, but you said that i've to put the ethernet cable to the wan port of the extrem one, then the other to the express one.
But then I have to put the internet cable to a LAN port of the extrem ?
I thought that Ihave to put the adsl cable to the WAN port then an ethernet cable from the extrem base going to the express one...
Mmm, it looks like we are confusing each other now sorry.
For the record, are we dealing with just 2 extremes here, or is there an express involved? Sorry, I can only post on the forums in the middle of the night here so I'm always drowsey at this time.
Let me show you a better diagram of what to do.
