i read previous posts, but still can't get the best and easiest answer. I'm planning to use the Pace modem and plug in ethernet to Extreme unit. Then use the Express as extension for WiFi. Goal is to extend the WiFi to back of house.
I tried the "Extending Wireless Network" for Extreme and giving it the Static IP address, Subnet Mask, Router Address, and DNS Servers (secondary) that all match from Sonic's Pace modem. Used same WiFi name from Pace and pswd as well. Still get orange light on extreme, says it can't find the wireless network.
Does anyone know benefits of using Extreme as router vs having Pace handle all the handoffs? I use AppleTV close to the Pace modem and Extreme, but the Extreme and Pace are pretty close to each other.
Any help would be appreciated.
