My Airport Express when it is setup to extend my network while plugged into Ethernet will Create a network under settings. If I change this to Extend A Network it doesn't work properly. It keeps kicking me on and off WiFi, but the former way works with no foreseen issues. What is going on? I can't extend my guest network with the first option, I don't believe.


I have a 5th Generation AirPort Extreme and a 1st Gen AirPort Express.

Mac OS X (10.5.1)
