Airplay over extended WiFi Network
I live in a house and need a WiFi extender to reach all the floors.
So basically, I have a "root" (connected to the Internet) WiFi Network of SSID myWiFi in the basements.
I then have a WiFi Extender (Netgear WN3000RP) that connects to the myWiFi network and extends it to another Network of SSID myWiFi_Ext.
Do you know whether all my devices (iMac, iPhone, AppleTV) are able to see each other on the same network, regardless they are connected to myWiFi or to myWiFi_Ext ?
Typically, will my iPhone connected to myWiFi be able to Airplay on my AppleTV connected to myWiFi_Ext ?
Thanks for your clever answers !

You essentially need to put the extender in 'bridge' mode to get them all on the same network. You really don't need two different SSIDs once you have it setup and working the way you want.
Remember that you lose essentially half of your bandwidth with every repeater, so if you are streaming large local files you may have difficulty.
