    I have a Linksys WRT54GS ver 1.0 as my wireless router. It has an external signal booster to 500mV and a high gain 9db antenna. My iMac is connected through Ethernet to the router.

    The main use is to stream music using couple of Slimdevices Squeezebox units. The signal of the one in my bedroom is in average 68% so I want to extend my nextwork to impreve the signal.

    I jut bought an airport express and I would like to use to extend the network. So far I have been able to connect the AE to the existing network but not to extend it. My network is WEP 64 encrypted.

    Does anybody have the steps on how to set up the AE to extend the network?

    Thanks.
