    Right now I have a Time Capsule for my primary router. I use an Airport Express (joined my network) to set-up Air Tunes and a printer. I would like to extend my wireless network range so I get a nice strong signal on the third floor (for my iPhone and iPad). My TC is in the basement where my modem is.

    Can I use an Airport Extreme to extend my TC network. If so, can someone provide some simple set-up instructions. I would like to keep my Airport Express for my Air Tunes and printer.

    Easy to do. Get an Airport Extreme, and in setup you will see an option that allows you to extend a wireless network. You'll have to enter the name of the network, password, etc.

    Also, make sure in your Time Capsule settings that you have ticked the box "Allow This Network To Be Extended".
