Does using multiple Airport Expresses in extend mode allow for more wireless clients?

    I know that one Airport has a device rating of 50 clients, but I was wondering if adding additional airports as extenders allows for more combined clients on a single network.

    NO THEY DO NOT

    each airport will take up 1 client slot

    if you want to increase the # of clients you must give each airport its own network name. each airport needs to be on "create a new wifi network"
    and of course this will cause Double Nat triple nat and quadruple nat but this is the only way to increase the limit

    You would also run into bandwidth issues unless connected via Ethernet.
