    dad has an iBook (802.11g), I have a MacBook (802.11n).

    Currently running an airport extreme in the a/b/g mode, but really want the full speed of n for my MacBook. Is there any way to use an Airport Express to extend the Airport Extreme network using a/b/g, where my extreme will emit n speeds. i.e.

    AExtreme - running 802.11n
    AExpress - running 802.11g

    thanks a lot!

    I don't know about extending, but you could bridge the two together with a cable, so one uses n, and one uses b/g.
    This is the set up I have, but not with airports, I have a D-Link N router, and a linksys WRT54GS linked by cable, with an iMac, MacBook Pro, and MacBook, all n capable, linked to the D-Link, and everything else on the linksys.
