    I've just bought an Extreme, primarily because I wanted the facility to set up a guest network. In my naivety I thought all I had to do was plug in the Extreme into the Linksys, turn off the Linksys wireless, and away you go.
    Well it seems from what I've read the EXtreme is set in Bridge mode and therefore it is not possible to create a guest account.
    Does anyone know if I can disable the 'router' function in the Linksys and use it simply as a modem, then I can set the Extreme to NAT and DHCP mode?
    Thanks,
    Rob

    It would help if you posted the Linksys model number so that we can help you...
