Hey, I am the new one and here is my first question. I want to replace my router with an Apple Airport Extreme. My question is that Airport Extreme can do the same thing that my current router does, which you can see in the attached file. Router is the one located in LIVING ROOM and circled with red. Router and Cable modem communicates wirelessly with WDS (Wireless Distribution Service). It means collects wireless signals wirelessly from cable modem and distributes these signals both wirelessly and wired. Sometimes it works great but sometimes makes me crazy. Distance between cable modem and router is 40 meters but some rooms and walls decrease the signal quality. 1) Is Apple Airport Extreme has same capabilities with my old router? in terms of WDS between third party modem and AE base station. 2) It might help to increase the signal quality or not? Please check the image uploaded to get a better idea. http://img850.imageshack.us/i/schemek.jpg/ Thanks for replies.
