    Hello,

    I have the following setup and have two questions:

    3 Airport Express...

    -I've set one up as the main base station.

    -I've set another up as a relay station

    -I've setup the third as a remote station


    On the remote station, I am try to get it to distribute IP addresses so I can connect a NAS box to it (I need that to pickup an IP).

    However, after I select "distribute IP addresses" and the remote station restarts, it reverts back to being unchecked.


    I also have a question about what "Airpot Network Name" I should enter under each Airport Express unit. Currently they all have the same name. Would this cause any conflicts?

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    if they are relaying one another, they have to be the same name, and the master is giving out the IPs.

    But I did have it setup previously where I could have the remote station distribute IP addresses and my NAS server picked up an IP. I had to redo the setup and I can't seem to get it back to the original setting. Any idea on how I had it setup previously?
