2 abs??

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
ok check it out...I have one snow base station and am thinking about getting an airport extreme or anohter snow if i can find one...i am considering this mainly because the one snow basstation doesn't let me go outside with my pb (partially because its got crappy reception) but we also have a semi long house and the basestation is where the cable comes into the house...far away from where i need the wireless..,.i know i cant do wireless bridging but thats ok...i dont mind running one ethernet cable to get wireless...so what i need is advice on which basestaion to get and how to set up the wired roaming...that would be a lot of help...thanks if you need more info let me know

    If you are willing to run a cable that far to bring another base station to the section of the house where you need it, why not just run a cable to the base station you already have?

    I was under the impression that ApE BS could do that...

    I asked a "genius" about it and he said that with a regular ABS and an ApE BS i could set up bridging... I have yet to do this, but I am looking forward to it over the summer if I can...

    post your results if you get it to work

    so can i use an APE and a snow and do wireless bridging..i thought no but maybe?

    also any one know where to get a cheap snow basestation...if i cant find a cheap one ill go with the APE cause its really inexpensive....anyway...one final thing...the reason i dont re reoute the cable is because i have a kinda long house so i need coverage over the whole area...not just half

    thanks a lot!
