Hi all, I have a problem for which I just can't seem to find a solution. At one moment during the past week, my internet connection got extremely slow. I thought it was because our ADSL modem was acting up, so I restarted it several times. That didn't help at all. I didn't really need a fast connection until today, so I started digging to see if I could find where the problem was. Well, it turns out it's with the AirPort Express base station. Base stations, actually, as I have three. I couldn't get a good reception in the back of our house, so I bought a second that's used in the living room, which I now have connected to my stereo. AirTunes is very nice, as I found out. I also wanted to connect a printer wirelessly, so I bought a third AirPort Express to go in the back of the house (as that's where I put the printer). That should also sort things out concerning the bad reception in the back of the house and in the garden. However, connecting to the third AirPort Express proved difficult. Sometimes it shows a 0% signal strength, when checking the signals using AirRadar. Very weird, as I have the two extra base stations set up to extend the signal of the first (which is of course set up to allow for signal extension). Well, today I finally decided it would be easier to just walk over to the back room and momentarily connect the printer to the MacBook when in need of printing. Yes, I could place the printer in the living room, but I don't want to put such an ugly device in plain sight. Okay, and now for the real fun. Last week I thought it would be cool to check how fast my internet connection really was, using Speedtest.net. It turned out to be roughly 10Mbps. Quite okay, I guess. Well, today I checked it again to see if the connection really was as slow as I perceived it to be. And yes, it's 1,5Mbps right now. A quick check with a direct ethernet connection from my ADSL modem to my MacBook showed that the actual connection was still 10Mbps. So, then the quest for a solution began. I had the AirPort Express base stations connected to each other via a WDS setup. Extensive searching taught me that WDS can severely slow down a wireless network and negatively effect the wireless range. So, I decided to try turning WDS off and set up the base stations as one main station and two signal extenders. That didn't help one bit. I then learned that AirTunes can also seriously impact wireless speeds. But turning off AirTunes on the two AirPort Express base stations that had the feature turned on, did nothing. Then I started to get worried. Some AirPort Express restarts didn't help, either. Even restarting my MacBook multiple times didn't work. Using AirRadar, I checked to see if the wireless channel I was using wasn't too crowded. There were two other networks using it, so I switched to one nobody else in the neighbourhood was using. That did nothing, either. Even lowering or increasing the multicast rate did nothing positive. And that was the very last thing I could think of that might help. So now I'm sitting here with no ideas left how to solve this problem. If anybody has one, please help me. I really want my connection back. So please, please help me. I'm not one to give up easily, but I'm really out of clues here. Thanks in advance. -- Bengt77 EDIT: Switching off the two extra base stations, turning off WDS on the main one and restarting both the main AirPort Express and the ADSL modem is something I only just thought of, and guess what? It did the trick. My true internet speed is back: 10Mbps. But one huge question mark remains: why does the speed go down so drastically when using multiple AirPort Expresses? And AirTunes? Does anybody here have a clue, because I would really like to have an answer to that question.
