Is there a way to share an internet connection where one of the two Airport Extreme's does not have the WDS option?

    To see the "Particpate in a WDS network" option in the "Wireless Mode" popup list, you must press and hold the "Option/alt" key before/while opening the popup.

    If your second Extreme is not this same current model, try checking the "Allow this network to be extended" box found on the "AirPort>Wireless" panel. If that doesn't work, try not using the "802.11n only" settings in the "Radio Mode" popup on the same panel. Be sure to use same settings for both Extremes.
