    I have a time capsule, with airport built in. I bought this for the hard drive inside. Now I previously had a airport extreme, is there anyway to use the airport extreme to extend the wireless range, like the airport express?

    If yes can someone please tell me how, im running latest version of Leapord.

    The feature you are looking for is called WDS, that will help you find more info.
    Here is a page from apple tech support

    the page is a bit old, but the settings are the same, you might just have to look for them.

    keep in mind that if the extreme is an older B/G version, you will kill your network speed on the time capsule. since the time capsule will drop to G to be able to talk to the extreme.
