    I could use a little help.

    I have 3 Airport Extremes and a time capsule, add to that a couple Expresses.

    I have a 3 story house and drops in most of the rooms. I would like to know if anyone has any suggestions on hos I should set up the airport extremes in my house so that I have one wireless network and not 4 or 5.

    I have each extreme plugged into a drop which is connected to a gig switch that is connected to the time capsule which is connected to my cable modem. I also have a couple airport expresses that are joined to the extremes on said floor of the house so I can sream music to various systems.

    My wife is always complaining because she never knows which wireless network she should be on. Any thoughts?

    I have all b/g/n gear except for the expresses which are b/g.

    Thanks in advance.

    That was just what I needed. Now the fun part is going to all the appleTV boxes and changing the wireless network.

    I would say you have too many Airport Extremes. You could have accomplished the same thing with just one Time Capsule and 3 Airport Express'.
