Question: Question about AirPort Extreme
I have a restaurant where I'm going to replace my POS system with iPad based system.
I have an office in back of the restaurant away from where I'm going to place my POS, and I currently have the modem and my Linksys wireless router in the office. My new POS provider requires me to get the AirPort Extreme for the POS networking. So I purchased one last night and I tried to set it up today. I thought I was able to keep my current Linksys router and have the AirPort Extreme connect to it wirelessly.
I used my iPad to try to set up and I selected to extend my wireless network, but from there, I kept getting "unexpected error" and was asked to try again. So I created network name and password exactly the same as my currently ones as I remembered someone on YouTube said to do. Although it seemed to work as long as my AirPort Extreme was connected physically via Ethernet cable, it stopped connecting.
Now I'm trying to get the settings back to its original state, and I tried factory resetting as well. But when I go to the Wi-Fi settings in my iPad, when I select my AirPort Extreme under "set up new AirPort base station" it gives an "unexpected error". I also tried the same from my iPhone, but when I select it, it appears on top just under "Wi-Fi" toggle, and it tries to connect to it instead going to the set up window... and it never connects.
Is there anything I can do to get it back to its original state?
Do I need another AirPort Extreme (or Express) and replace my current Linksys router with the Airport Extreme?
