    Hi again,

    I just got the new Airport Extreme setup with 2 Airport Expresses. The AX are set to join existing network which is hosted by the AEBS in the 5 GHz range.

    Can someone explain how to read the performance graph in the Airport Utility? It's not documented in the help section. I have no idea how to interpret the numbers. I'm assuming the dips in the graph are not a good thing.

    The yellow line is the AX located right above the room where the AEBS is. The green line is the AX located in the room right beside it.

    Those dips are perfectly normal. Networks do all kinds of crazy things.
