I have a Belkin wireless and want to use a newmodel Apple express to extend the netowk range. I am aplle to set the express to connect to the network but it does not appear to extend the range. Even standing right next to the express the single strenght on my ipad is one bar or nonexistent


express, iOS 6.0.2

The AirPort Express can extend a wireless network...using wireless only.....when the network is produced by another Apple AirPort Extreme, Time Capsule or another AirPort Express.

 

In other words, you must always have at least two Apple routers to be able to extend a wireless network using wireless only.
