ok so basically i have a printer set up to my AEBS, but the signal i get on my wireless router provided by my ISP is much faster/stronger.

is there anyway i can set this up to print even though i'm not connected directly to the AEBS.

the main modem/router that i'm connected to is connected to the AEBS. both are transmitting a wireless signal.

the other alternative i have is every time i need to print something i can connect to the AEBS, but if i can avoid that somehow/someway then i'd like to know.

thanks

Set up the AEBS in bridge mode. This disables DHCP on the Extreme but allows it to act as a wireless access point with your other router handling DHCP, etc. Any devices connected to either router will be able to see and communicate with one another, and any computer should be able to print to the Extreme. This will however disable your guest network if you have one enabled.
