i just bought an airport express connected it to the modem with a cable=enternet. I created a new wireless airport express network, and when i use this network with my apple devices the wifi signal is still low i was hoping that the wifi signal wil improve.

Have i done something wrong? should i still use the olde wifi ? i tried it too but the wifi there is not improved either.

please help me.

    If the Express is located near the other WiFi router then there will probably be no improvement.

    but how can i locate it far from the modem?

    when it's not connect with a cable to the modem, the network says there's no internet connection to the airport express,  also when the settings are on wifi?!

    If you want to extend a wireless network, using wireless only, AirPort routers can only extend other AirPort networks.

    If you have a non-Apple router and an Apple router, then the Apple router cannot wirelessly extend the non-Apple router. You will have to invest in Powerline adapters or run an Ethernet cable.
