    Hey

    I have a Netgreat MIMO router, and would like to add an express to the network for music only.

    My MIMO router is controlled by the netgear software, NOT windows, and the netgear software will not let me connect to the MIMO router and the Express at the same time, and without connecting to them at the same time i cannot set up the express.

    When i use windows to control the express, its fine, but i cannot set it up to my add to my MIMO network as i have to disconnect the MIMO so i can add the express!!

    Im all a little lost really,

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    To do the intial setup use a wired connection to the express. You will be setting up the express not to route. It will act more or less like another computer o your network

    I have tried connecting it directly to the PC but the express setup wont give me the option to add it to my existing network. I can only get that option when i try and do it wirelessley but i then can't add it to the network as when my express is wireless, my MIMO isnt!

    Help!!
