I have read threads and searched on this until I have become hopelessly confused (also read the Apple Wireless Networks document). Here's what I want to do: 1) Use a second AEBS in my home theater cabinet to wirelessly connect the blu-ray player (BDP) and HD DVR. I have a primary AEBS which is my WLAN access point, but I cannot get wire between the DSL router/printer and the HT location. I think I know how to do this with WDS, but I'm concerned about performance hits with WDS. Is there another option? Is there someway to configure the 2nd AEBS as a WLAN client that can share internet access to the BDP & DVR without the performance hit of WDS? 2) second option - proceed with the 2 AEBS in a WDS configuration, but offset the performance by making it N-only. I then need access via G for my old Macbook. I have a G Airport Express that isn't doing anything right now - can I connect it via ethernet to the main AEBS to create either a separate G WLAN or a G-only wired relay to the primary N-only WLAN? 3) Another related question - I currently have the primary AEBS setup as a bridge (WAP) with a firewall appliance upstream serving DHCP on a NAT LAN. Will the WDS Remote set as a bridge serve up DHCP addresses passed through from the firewall, or does the WDS main need to be the DHCP server (and presumably NAT router)?
