Building an Apple network

Posted:
in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Hi,



I would like to build an apple network across my home.



I have a Time Capsule and three Apple Extremes.



Is it as simple as plugging in my Time capsule to the internet, setting that up and then adding the extremes?



I have been told I need to put the on extended mode, what is that and how do I do it.



Also I will not have a lot of memory on the network. How do I make best use of that and can I use it to store the movies I currently have in my iTunes on my iMac?

    You need to set up a WDS (Wireless Distribution System)

    any one of these devices should suffice to build a home network--I don't know why you would need 4---the time capsule and the 3 extremes---



    Just use one---follow the directions in the link that was attached---
