Extend Wi-Fi w/ Airport Express breaks existing network
Posted on 2012-04-12
I am attempting to wirelessly extend/repeat a Wi-Fi network that originates in a 4th generation Time Capsule with a 1st generation N version Airport Express.
I am going through the settings, i choose to extend an existing network, pick the network in the drop-box enter the proper password.
after applying the changes, it breaks the existing network and all connections are lost.
if you unplug the airport express then the network works again.
Any ideas? this makes no sense.
Both units are running the most recent firmware, i have factory reset both and set up from scratch again but the issue persists.
