    I just bought a Time Capsule and have it as my primary wireless device. I also wirelessly connected my last generation Airport Extreme (Single Band/Wireless N) to the network.

    I would like to make the secondary extreme Wireless G band only, but when it is connected as a secondary device, you do not have the option on choosing bands. Or maybe I just can't find it.

    Can I adjust the band on the secondary device?

    Thanks!

    yeah i dont think you can change that feature when its on extend mode. Why do you want it to be G only though?

    some devices are G specific and will lower the wireless casting rate of the main router/time capsule (i havent used a dual band as of yet..so im not sure if they can keep one downspeed for G devices and have a simultaneous N fullspeed cast...)

    But from what I recall if you resetup the AEBSn froms cratch and select extend network and switch the radio mode to G only it should allow you to have G devices connect to that only.
