Hi all,


I would like to build up a well working WiFi covering network about the Ethernet infrastructure which is existing. That means my Capsule is connecte to the DSL-Modem with "create a network". The Extreme is integrated into the same Ethernet network with the same parameters to "create a network". But if I connect the Express to the network via the WAN plug in the network crashes. It is only working if I set the Express to "extend the network" without any Ethernet connections.


Is this the only way to install such a kind of WiFi?


Thx in advance
