Extending a signal of a Time Capsule 802.11n (1st Gen)

I have a Time Capsule 802.11n (1st Gen) and it is in one section of my house but then I have a lot of dead spots in various spots of the house. Is there an easy way to extend the signal using additional units or something? And if so, what exact hardware and what exact settings for that would work for this 1st gen Time Capsule?

Who is Participating?
Both devices support 802.11n and WPA/WPA2, so there's no reason it wouldn't.

You should be able to use any device that supports these protocols. Even from another manufacturer, such as this
Apple's Airport Express is only $99 and can extend the range of your Time Capsule.


The built-in wizard will help you set it up. It is also a wireless access point itself, so you could take it with you if you travel somewhere or if the wireless radio in your Time Capsule breaks.

Can the current Airport express extend the range of the 1st gen time capsule though?
