I am using an airport express hardwired to my dsl modem. To get better range i would like to link two other airport exporesses to this network. Have tried but can't get any signal from any but the one hardwired to the modem. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

When you plug them in does the light go green eventually? If so, then you have to go to your Airport menu in the toolbar and select them. It may take a while for them to show up, but they will. They will each show up as something like "Apple65734823929" or some such (it will be obvious), but they will show up as different from your current network. Once you find them you have to set each of them up to join your current network and act as extenders or routers.
