Hi there. Am reasonably new to all this mac stuff!
Was wondering if you guys could help me out please.
I have the current config at the moment :-
TC as my main router connected to my ISP's DSL modem in the Living Room.
I bought the TC to replace my Airport Extreme as I wanted the backup function of TC. My Airport Extreme has been in the cupboard for a few months now.
Just renovated my apartment and have run CAT6 cable through out.
As my apartment is all concrete, the wireless is not getting to all rooms of my pad with good signal strength, so have decided to try and connect the Airport Extreme in my Bedroom to TC via the CAT6 Ethernet cables. Seems to be working okay.
Have read a few posts where others have the Airport Extreme connected to their ISP's modem, and the TC then connected to the Extreme via wireless or ethernet. Obviously ethernet is faster and more reliable.
My question is, which (TC or Airport Extreme) should I have connected to my ISP's modem, and does it matter?
Could you also please provide me with some settings inside Airport Utility so that I'm not wasting bandwidth and have the TC and AE connected correctly? I still wish to use the Ethernet function to connect TC and AE together, and then use the wireless function of AE in my Bedroom so I can sit on the bed with the laptop wirelessly.
Thx very much in advance!
