    I have an existing Airport Extreme BaseStation set-up as my wireless router. It is located on the far end of the house. My computers are close to the base station and can get goo wireless signal. Recently I bought an Airport Express and put it in my bedroom (other end of the house). I hooked up my powered speakers so I can stream iTunes. I set-up the Airport Express to act as “Extend Wireless Mode.” I was able to stream music from my iTunes on one of the computers to this Airport Express. My signal in my bedroom increases since I added this but I noticed that the signal on my computers close to the base station decreases significantly. I don’t know why it is doing it? Is it because I set-up the Airport Express to act as extender? The signal around the express is good but the signal near the base station is bad.

    sounds like your units are using the express rather then the extreme for some reason.. :s
