    Ok so we upgraded to the U Verse, learning their router is so slow, i went to get an airport extreme and two expresses.

    The extreme is in the room with the uverse, and (turned off the ATT router) and created a network with the extreme.
    It worked beautifully. fast too. Though the living room, the room i want to have internet in, i placed one express and extended the wireless, (so that the wii and PS3 can go online)

    IT was successful, however its so slow! istumbler showing me signal strength and it changes between 13% to 50% i dont understand.

    so i set up another express in the hall to that room between the the two.
    No changes in the internet. Im so lost. Only the room with the extreme is real fast.
    To give u additional details, i held option and click the wifi symbol, heres the data

    PHY mode: 802.11n
    Transmit rate: 130
    MCS index: 15
    Channel: 11 (2.4 GHz)
