Hi
I hope that this is the correct forum for asking a newbie question. If not, I am grateful for pointers.

I have an existing Apple Airport Extreme that is my default gateway in our house. I want to extend the wifi to my office by adding a Linksys DC3200 as extender (same SSID). What would be the correct connection type for this? I can choose between Client bridge and a couple of WDS station/AP.

Also, the Dc3200 has 3 interfaces. Should I apply the same router type on all of these or just the ath2 interface that seems to be the combined 2.4/5Gz network?

I can of course experiment to find a working setup, but if I can get it right from the start, I would be most grateful. I have a solid knowledge about TCP/IP but not about dd-wrt's specifics.

You meant AC3200? DC3200 doesn't exist. Check this page
