I have a U-verse router/WiFi providing Internet access and WiFi. If I add an AirPort Extreme to this setup, will it connect wirelessly to my modem?
Do I need to connect the AirPort Extreme to the Internet router via a wire, or will it configure itself with the U-verse modem wirelessly? Ideally, I'd like the Airport to run a separate subnet for printers, etc, while enabling Internet access via the Internet modem/router. Feasible?

Does this display AC, N, B, G separately or one network? If I connect via AC wireless, can I use airplay with a G only speakers.
If I use a network cable to connect an Airport Express to the LAN port of the Airport Extreme will they be on the same WiFi network?
I want to have two areas of my house be on the same WiFi network, but they are probably too far apart to just extend the WiFi network wirelessly. I want to run a network cable from the Extreme to an Express. Does this work? Would they be on the same network or would I need to set them up as two different networks with different names?

Airport Extreme with Wifi Broadband Stick
Currently, I am using a wifi stick attached to my router with USB (for 3G) to share my unlimited internet to all my device. I would like to know if I can extend or improve my connection by using Airport Extreme, aside from the features already mentioned e.g. HD sharing, printer sharing etc.

AE setting up a new network vs extending an existing network is new better? Looking to boost Wifi in low signal places in the house & outside.
I have a 6 mg internet connection with CenturyLink using a Zytel PK-5001Z modem. I have 100 ft ethernet cables ran from modem to ethernet switches TE100-S5 TRENDnet fast ethernet switch to iMacs, Apple Tv's & Roku box through out the house. Of course the iPad's & iPhones use wifi. Wifi strength varies of course depending where in the house you are which is very annoying. We just got Wifi calling with Sprint & if 1 iPhone is using wifi calling you can't stream or down;road anything or the wifi call just becomes impossible to continue. That makes no since because at most per Sprint documentation at most it should use 1mg only 1/6 th of my bandwidth. I totally don't understand adding the AE to an existing network means bridging & other settings I don't feel comfortable with. But if I add a new network it would be for the wifi devices like iPads & iPhones correct. the existing network SSID CenturyLink 8851 would be for all the ethernet connected stuff right? 1 SSID for ethernet thing & SSID AE for all devices Wifi right? CenturyLink has advised me that they will not help with CPE equipment & they know nothing about (is that not insane or what?) with the great community of all of us i hope not to need Apple Supports help.
Since the Modem is in the kitchen kinda of close to a Microwave user manual says 25 ft away I'm going to run a 50ft ethernet cable from back of the modem to the AE in the family room into the Wan Port right? Very excited about the AE because it will be the perfect place to connect the Hue Lights bridge. just waiting on HomeKit & WWDC. And being able to not using Wemo switches. So do I have this right? Have I figured it out correctly? Look forward to your feedback.
Connecting AP Extreme to gen 3 Time Capsule
Currently have a gen 3 2TB TC connected to my cable modem. TC currently does routing, DHCP, wifi and backup. Wireless on the TC is poor, very poor, having to reboot the TC every few days to keep wifi optimal. I want to add an AP Extreme to the network to do wifi. I would keep the TC connected to the cable modem and it would do DHCP and backup letting the AP Extreme handle wifi. Furthermore the TC is in the basement, the AP would be on the main floor connected via Ethernet to the TC. Anyone see any issues with this? As for connecting the AP to the TC, can I run from one of the GB enet ports on the TC to the WAN port on the AP Extreme or do I have to build a crossover cable to go from gigabit enet to gigabit enet? Thanks!

Does Airport Express or Airport Extreme Time Capsule allow me to use iTunes HomeSharing on my Apple TV without using an internet connection?
The Reason I ask is because I am using Home Sharing over my Wi-Fi and it is extremely slow to upload a movie and I am not sure if it uses up my data?

Will Final Cut X be able to see a Hard Drive attached via USB over the Wi-Fi network?
At the moment, FCP X doesn't see a drive unless there is storage attached directly to the computer via USB, Firewire or SAN.
Will FCP X see any hard drive over the Wi-Fi network that is attatched to the new Airport Ex?
Basically, is this new Airport Ex a sort of NAS?

If i use airport express as main router from modem and connect to airport extreme in separate building 150 feet away, does the 10/100 LAN ratelimit th
I want to improve my existing 6 year old network. My existing network uses Linksys W54G router connected to Charter cable modem. This is connected to a switch and Linksys access point in main house 150 feet away via 5e cable. Both locationis have computers wired to network as well as wireless connections as well.
I want to add hard drive capability connectd directly to this network aswell as increase speed of the system. Ideally I would like to replace Linksys router with airport express that would serve as the primary router feeding an airport extreme as a bridges router that has hard drive connected to it in the main house.
Will the 10/100 limit of the express limit the overall communications speed between the modem and main house wireless running on the APE? Will the computer in the office building be ablle to talk to the hard drive on the airport extreme?

Can I set this up as a wireless print server that can pair up with my home wireless internet router?
Our new home has the internet access point on the main floor and our office is set up on the second floor. I would rather not drill a hole through the floor/ceiling and run cables through the walls to connect the printer to the access router. Can I setup the Airport Express to connect with our internet router wirelessly and also connect our 2 printers to create an extended network that makes our printers wireless? (one printer is only USB and the other is network ready)
