    An 802.11n AirPort Express can not extend the wireless network of an 802.11g AirPort Extreme.

    An 802.11n AirPort Express can extend the wireless network of an 802.11n AirPort Extreme. First open AirPort Utility for the Extreme and update its settings by checking the box "Allow this network to be extended"

    Then use AirPort Utility to setup the Express to extend the network.
