Setting up multiple Airport Extremes to share printer

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I'm contemplating buying two airport extremes in order to provide adequate wireless signal in my home. I intend to set up the routers to run in "roaming mode" wherein the routers exchange synchronization information over ethernet rather than using wireless. (see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4260).

Because of the layout of my house, I intend to place the "primary" airport extreme in my garage where the fios OTN ethernet cable and ethernet runs from other rooms in my house terminal in a junction box.

I intend to setup the "secondary" airport extreme in bridge mode and place it in an upper level loft.

Question: Can I attach a USB printer to the "secondary" router and have computers attached to my network recognize and print to it? Or when running a bridged network like this can I only attach the printer to the "primary" airport extreme?

Thanks in advance

Clayton

It'll work the way you want to set it up. In bridge mode, you've just got one big network... Everything is on the same network, so everything can see the printer.
