    You cannot have the Extreme wirelessly extending the signal! In that, I mean it cannot repeat the signal. If using AirPort Utility on a Mac or iOS device, simply reset the base station and set it to "Join" your network put out by your ASUS router. When set to Join mode, it will do what you want.

    Looks like you need to do the bottom portion of this article to add the AE to the network then plug in the ethernet cable from the desktop to the AE.

    In order to wirelessly extend a network, the first router in the chain must be an Apple router. However, "Join" mode is supported on most routers without issue. Join mode allows the Ethernet ports to act as LAN devices and also allows USB sharing if configured.
