I currently have a D-Link DIR-880L connected to my modem as my primary router. From the D-Link, I have an Airport Extreme connected via ethernet and placed on the other side of my house away from the D-Link router. I have the AE set up as bridge mode. I want to make sure I'm doing this right because I'm searching to figure out the difference between a repeater and bridge mode and it's still not very clear to me. What I would like to do is hard wire my AE to my D-link (which I've done) and use the d-link to broadcast out my wireless signal so that when I'm in that part of my house where the AE is, I'll get a more solid connection since the connection drops off from the D-link router without the AE. Am I correct in setting up the AE in bridge mode or should I be setting it up as a repeater or buying a separate repeater? My preference is to hard wire the AE to one of the ports from the D-link router and then broadcast wirelessly and allow my wireless clients to connect to the AE. Is this method the best for signal strength and speed? Sorry if I'm not using the correct terminology as I'm not a tech expert. I do consider myself a little more knowledgeable than the regular person in this area but certainly not an expert.
