Hello, I am trying to configure my network for the best WiFi speed. I have a Comcast/Xfiinity Modem/ Wireless Router (SMCD3GNV) with speed of 50 Mbps down and 10 Mbps up (acutally 87 down and 11.5 up last time tested) and 3 Airport Extremes, and a 16 port GB switch.  I am really confused about what should be plugged in to what and how to set up the Airport extemes for best WiFi speed for laptops, iphones and iPads etc. . I have a large house and want the WiFi to be available everywhere. Shoud I plug the Modem/Router and the first Airport extreme into the switch and then set up the other 2 Airport extremes as extended networks, or should I plug all the Airports into the switch, or should I plug just the first Airport into the switch and then connected the other 2 Airports into the 1st?  Like I said I am really confused. Any help you can offer would be appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance,

Vic
