To preface this I just bought a new 5th Generation Airport Extreme for my house. I have an old (2nd or 3rd Gen.) Airport Extreme, that uses 802.11g (and obviously the new Extreme uses 802.11n).
My hope is to extend the wireless network in my house, but the age difference in the two airports is causing some problems..I've been looking at the support sections for extending a wireless network, but the step by step doesn't quite work for me.
I've set up the main base station (the new one), and have the option selected for extending the wireless network. However, when I get in to the settings for the older airport extreme, I do not have the option to set it to "extend a current wireless network" in the drop down menu for "Network Mode".
I would really appreciate the community's expertise here!
Thanks in advance!
