Airport Networking Choices

Mar 22, 2007

I have 3 different Airports in my house and I need to network them all together.

I have:

1. My Airport Extreme Time Capsule, which is my router. (upstairs)
2. My other Airport Extreme, which is in my kitchen and connected via ethernet. (downstairs)
3. My Airport Express, which is wireless and connected to my printer.

Here's the thing. I understand networking reasonably well, but what's confusing me is the many choices to connect various devices.
There's 'Create a WDS Network', "Extend a Network', 'Create a Wireless Network', 'Bridge Mode'
I've Googled it many times but there are so many different answers.
Can anybody help me? It's pretty confusing. I need a specific mode that will let all my devices work together on one network.
Thanks, in advance, for any help.
