Re: Wifi extender

Hey Lidzau,

I'm sure the community will do all they can to assist, but they'll need some details of what's not working in order to know where to begin. What part of the set up process is failing?

Re: Wifi extender

I don’t think it is possible to connect the Apple Airport extreme to the Telstra modem using WiFi. From all the documentation that I have seen it will only connect to a Apple router. If you want to connect to a non Apple router you need to use a wired connection. The Apple Airport Express can be connected using WiFi but not the Extreme.

Telstra Smart Modem

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
