i currently have two airport express routers, one as the main router and the other to extend the network. well, now that i live in a three story condo, i would like to buy the airport extreme. i know with all pc computers, i can enable shared drives and printing, but will the two airport express routers still be able to extend the network on the other floors?

i mulled around the apple website but couldnt find anything relate to that question specifically.

I'm running an Extreme (gigabit) with three Expresses in WDS. The Expresses are mainly used for Airtunes, but occasionally computers connect via them.

I've got one of each in my WDS - an n (10/100) AEBS as the primary, and an older b/g AEBS and an airport express. They all work fine together and primarily serve to extend wireless coverage to my second story, garage, and patio. High gain antennas and range extenders failed, while the WDS solved the coverage problem.
