Hi,

 

We have ADSL Modem/wifi Router from ISP to one of the room. Now its wi-fi is working in this room & some where out side.

 

Now i want to extend the same wi-fi network over Basement,1st Floor & 2nd Floor without laying any lan cable. is it possible to extend it over wireless?

if possible then please suggest us what devices (Like Time Capsule/Airport extreme/Airport Express) is required.

 

 

 

 

Regards

    Any Apple AirPort Base Station can be used to "wirelessly extend" a network created by another Apple base station. You would need to replace your existing wireless router with one. An AirPort cannot be used to "wirelessly extend" a wireless network created by another manufacturer's device.

    ok

     

    it means i can extend the wireless network through wirelessly with Airport base station & wireless network created by another apple base station only.

     

    If you have any technical document for configuration wise, please share it also.

     

    As per my knowledge, there are three types of  apple devices

     

    1. Airport express     -  it can be use as extend the range only.

    2. Airport Extreme     - it can use as a basestation

    3. Time Capsule        - It can use as a base station also.

     

    Base station- means that where ISP Cable connect, wireless network, password creation device if wrong please correct.

     

    please suggest the model also if possible

    Actually, these are all capable of being a base station and extending the range of another base station.

     

    Base station- means that where ISP Cable connect, wireless network, password creation device if wrong please correct.

     

    Yes, this is correct. Any of the devices can do this.
