I have an older graphite airport base station that networks my PowerMac, an iBook and and a Powerbook with my cable modem through a router.
I needed to increase my range and so decided to get a new Airport Extreme base station and planned on using the older base station to create a wireless bridge.
Firstly, can I do that?
Secondly, I have a Cisco Aironet 350 PCI card in my TiBook and when I got the Airport Extreme network set up, it couldn't 'associate' with the radio saying 'radio is not associated'. It was recently updated with firmware 4.25.30. Are they compatible? If so, any suggestions on what else to try?
I had set up the Airport Extreme to use both b/g settings, so figured it should work with the Cisco card.
Also, my iBook still has OX 9 on it, while everything else has 10.2.6. Does the iBook need to have OS X to use the Airport Extreme? It has an older Airport card in it.
I reinstalled my older Airport network, but noticed on my reciept that I will be charged $24.90 if I return this to the Apple Store because I opened it, so I want to try and get it to work.
