Airport Express - setting up wifi network
Posted on 2013-12-22
I can't seem to get my airport express to work in a cottage behind my house and need some advice. Here's the setup:
Has phone line, Ethernet and 3 Ethernet lines that go up to cottage #1. Wireless through router/modem.
Has phone line and three Ethernet lines from house. One of the Ethernet lines connects to Ethernet line that goes to Cottage #2.
Has phone line and Ethernet line from Cottage #1.
The House and Cottage #2 are working fine. The issue is in Cottage #1. We need wireless to work. When I tested the airport express in the house, it worked fine. Same with cottage #2. But it won't connect when I plug it into an Ethernet port in Cottage #1.
Someone at Best Buy suggested I get a modem to transfer the signal, but the modem doesn't have any extra ports so I don't know how I would plug the express into that.
But maybe I'm missing something. I just want to plug the express into an Ethernet port and have wifi.
Thanks for your help!
