I want to buy two of the new Airport Extremes and connect one to my cable modem and the other to extend my network. Will this work & how do I do it?

I want to use one as the main router and the other as an extender. If this is possible please tell me how to do this.

  • I have tried extended and roaming networks - a roaming network works best. You will need an ethernet cable running from your primary AirPort Extreme or router to the location of your extended AirPort Extreme to create a roaming network. I taught myself from Apple's support web page. Search for: 'Wi-Fi base stations: Extending the range of your wireless network by adding additional Wi-Fi base stations' in Apple's support page (won't permit me to add hyperlink here, sorry).
