All, Sorry, I asked this as a part of another thread, but didn't receive a response and could not find an answer. I was responding to the following post: "If you extend the network by WiFi then the data rate from anything connected to the second AE will be halved. This is because the data has to be sent twice back and forth between the second AE and the first TC/AE. If you connect the two by LAN cable then the data rate is at max. This is a roaming config (second AE is in bridge mode) not the extend network mode." Moreover, I am wondering if I just made a mistake. So I have an iMac on the way. I bought a Time Capsule, and already had an airport express. I have two floors, very old house, and reception downstairs is not great. No Cat wiring etc. My current setup will be: 1 iMac 1 iPad 2 iPhones 2 Roku 1 Dell Windows 7 laptop 1 Kindle Fire The TC would go upstairs, and I was planning to put the AE downstairs and bridge them. It sounds like the poster is saying I would be better off somehow rewiring the house to add a direct connection from the TC upstairs to the AE down? I could do that, but hadn't even considered it. I have Comcast cable. Is there anything easier than running new lines through the house? More importantly, is it worth it. I am happy to run the lines if there is a significant benefit. Thank you very much in advance.
