My Sky router is pretty bad at providing a good wireless coverage.

I already had a Old style wireless Apple express, pretty sure it is only B and G.

I have brought a Apple Express new style today.

I have the new Apple Express connected to my router and my routers wireless switched off.

I have asked my old Express to join a network which it does and the status light is green. it is plugged into the wall and has no ethernet in it.

However, when i get my iphone and start searching for wifi next to the extender it does not see a wireless network.

Now i have read many things and am confused. Is it pushing internet out of its ethernet port and not receiving and boosting wifi?

Any help appreciated as always

Many thanks

QUOTE Thanks
