I am trying to come up with a good solution to extend both my primary network and guest network across our building. I was thinking or purchasing an AirPort Extreme (connect the WAN to our modem) and then connect one LAN to our unmanaged switch and the others to two or maybe 3 AirPort Expresses throughout our building (we have hard wired lines throughout so we can hardwire them all together).

That being said, if I put the Expresses in bridge mode, will they extend both the primary wireless network as well as the guest wireless network?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

My System

It will only extend a single that it is bridging.... I don't see a way to connect it to the 2nd network to extend it. The Primary Network and Guest Network are sandboxed from each other (Devices on network A cannot see devices on Network B) so its not like it can see them both from the same connection to share both.

I don't have any expresses to actually try this... but I don't think it is possible with them.
