Typically when you have two routers in series you will want to reconfigure the downstream router (in this case the AirPort Extreme) as a bridge. You would do this via the AirPort Utility. Assuming that you are using version 5.x of this utility, the following would be the basic steps to reconfigure it: AirPort Utility > Select the Extreme > Manual Setup > Internet > Internet Connection tab > Connection Sharing = Off (Bridge Mode) > Update > allow the Extreme to restart.
Thanks. That's the way I have it set up. My internal (AppleTV to MAC to iPad to printer) network is soooo slow here in our new place that I thought it might have something to do with the two routers. I have a Time Capsule acting as the wifi base station for all these devices.... I know our DSL link is slow here, but our internal network should be zinging. Is there any way to check the actual throughput of the internal network?
I have set up the following wired configuration:
ADSL Modem is wired to:
Airport Extreme is wired to:
Airport Express (set to extend network)
Both Airport Extreme and Airport Express are set to bridge mode. What does this mean? With both Airport Extreme and Express set to bridge mode, can access Airport Extreme wirelessly?
