  • In short, No. If you want to extend an Airport Extreme, add another Airport Extreme. If you can connect the two (or more) Airports Extremes with an ethernet cable, they'll automatically operate as a Mesh system though alas Apple never promoted their Mesh capabilities. Alternatively replace your Airport Extreme with two or more Mesh devices like the Linksys Velop.

  • There seems to be differing opinions. My opinion its that it is best to turn off the older wireless technology on the AirPort Extreme. Otherwise you have two separate ways to manage and the technologies may not share the airspace well ... they may not play well together. If you are buying Velop as an extensible coherent wifi environment then stick with that one alone. I want to turn off all WiFi except the system I intend to use ... I'd turn off my neighbors if I could.
