    I have an Airport Extreme and several Airport Expresses ('G' version, not 'N') The Expresses are constantly having to be reset and sometimes it takes several attempts to get them reset properly. This happens all the time. Is this a problem with having the 'G' Expresses with the newer Airport Extreme, or should it be able to work properly? Is there something I should look for in particular about setting up/maintaining/troubleshooting the network? Is there a good resource for step by step instructions/explanations of setting up a network properly??

    thanks!

    It does work properly.

    Yes, numerous things, depends on what the problem is.

    Apple support website for instance, or numerous forums and websites.


    A good start would be to tell what config you are in (client mode, WDS, or even couple of separate network...) and if you are using WDS, what space between the bases..

    I use one ExtremeN , one ExpressN and one ExpressG, with different configurations (one is main, one is an access point, and one is client..) This is of course more stable than WDS, and enables me to have bothe MacBooksN and iPhoneG running at full speed with dedicated access points and 5ghz for N. But again, it depends what you re doing.. looking for range or speed (or else..)
