I have a very large network and am wondering if I can have multiple airport extremes on the same network. One will be my router and the other will be an access point.

If they are connected by ethernet, then one would be the router and the rest set to Bridge Mode.

If they are not connected by ethernet, the use the WDS mode to use one as a router and the rest as range extenders.
