I just got the Airport Extreme yesterday because the Netgear couldn't hold all the computers we had on it. Now the Apple router works great, except for it is downstairs in the basement because our home computer is ancient and only connects via ethernet cord. So the Wi-Fi upstairs is only one bar on my smart phone way in the corner far from the router. I did some research and found out that the Netgear WNR3500 can be used as a wireless extender. I want to hook it up on the main floor away from the Airport where the signal is strong so it will still get great connection but will be able to transmit that same great connection a little bit farther. I just want to know how to do that.

     Thank You!
