I have an Airport Extreme and an iPhone and for some reason the iPhone is now not connecting to the iPhone. The iPhone doesn't even see it when it searches for wifi...anyone know what is going on?

*its a new airport extreme*

Do you have the Extreme set in 802.11-n only mode? An iPhone wouldn't be able to see that. :confused:

I ended up hanging an old 802.11b/g access point (in bridge mode) off of my Airport Extreme. Two separate wireless networks in my house, but at least the slower devices can still get WiFi without hosing up my 5GHZ 802.11n-only network. :)

Sorry, didn't see you bump earlier. :eek:

Plug one of the B/G routers LAN ports into one of the N's LAN ports, set the B/G router to bridge mode, and the B/G router a different ESSID than the N router.
