Can I use the new Airport Express to extend my Wifi network? If yes, can it now extend both the 2.5 and 5 Mhz bands simultaneously?

    It can extend your wifi network, but only if you have another apple AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme or TimeCapsule connected via ethernet to your modem/router.

  • yes; it's surprisingly easy. when you extend the network, via an additional base station, my experience has been to use the extended base station's ethernet connection to connect; when you do this there is no down-throttling/least common denominator for the overall WiFi connection.

  • Yes, it Extends both the 2.5 and the 5 MHz bands simultaneously

  • Yes, if you have an airport extreme that supports simultaneous bands.

  • Yes Dual band at the same time.

  • yes and yes :)

  • Yes, and yes.

  • The old Airport Express does, I have two at home for that purpose. I'd be surprised if this one didn't.

  • yes to both except it's 2.4 not 2.5 mhz
