I already have a TimeCapsule. Can I use the Extreme base station as a extender in my network, using its 3 Ethernet ports for my home theater system?

  • Yes you can but be aware that extending a network in either WDS or bridge mode can reduce its overall performance.

  • Yes, but if the distance isn't otherwise an issue, when using AirPort Utility to setup, setup the second unit as a bridge rather than to extend.
