ok, theoretically, I should be able to use my graphite base station as the main base station, and then set up the extreme base station in another location, and tell the Extreme to get its internet access from the graphite.

This would work well, just so I could have USB printing services with out having a laptop connected to the printer. However, the extreme does not seem to be able to do WDS with the Graphite, or is it that the Graphite can speak WDS?

I would have had thought it did not matter, since the Extreme was simply set up to recieve signals, instead of trying to handle access & serve as a signal booster (which would be great if that did work)

any help would be greatly appreciated

currently, you have to "switch" your network to the one the extreme is on, in order to print, then back for network access & internet (which is annoying)
