    I'm extending my Airport Extreme router with an Airport Express. In the Airport Utility I am given these options:

    "Extend a wireless network"
    "Participate in a WDS network"

    Which one should I choose and why?

    What airport express do you have?

    I have the older b/g airport express and the only options I have is turn off, participate in wds, or join wireless network.

    Usually I would think extend would pop up only if you had the airport express connected through wire to the airport extreme.
