    I can't seem to get my airport express to extend the guest network from my new airport extreme. It will extend the private network but the guest network doesn't show up in the list under airport utility.

    Is there anyway to extend the internet only except to one computer which needs to share a printer back to the original extreme?

    Why would you wanna give out free internet to your neighbors anyhow?

    Guest Network Extension

    I have a client with an Extreme that is already extending the main SSID but would also like to extend the Guest SSID with another AirPort Express. Seems strange that this would not be allowed. Has anyone come up with a solution?

    I never figured it out.

    I think think it might have something to do with the fact that the guest network isolates all the clients so they can't talk to each other.
