    Hi.

    I have 2x Express extending my network from my Extreme base station. One is the newer model (supports 'n') which is upstairs & the other is in the kitchen running airtunes with a speaker.

    However, if the express upstairs is turned off, the other stops working completely (orange blinking light).

    Surely its not extending the wifi from the other Express, as I did not think this was possible?

    Any help or suggestions would be great!

    Question: Can AirPort Express be used for a Wireless Distribution System (WDS)?
    Answer: Yes. AirPort Express can be a WDS main, remote, or relay station. It can function as a WDS main whether or not you are using it as a router to share your Internet connection (NAT).

    From http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1515?viewlocale=en_US

    But I don't think you would have set up WDS accidentally...

    looks like I did (bridge mode).

    Thanks for your reply though, now reconfiguring network using powerline:)
