    Once you switch it to Infrastructure mode it will join an existing network and get an IP address from the DHCP server (router usually) on that network.

    EDIT I'm a pictures kind of guy so I made this, maybe it will explain it better:
    Great but one last thing photoshop the LEDs to be the correct color too

    802.11ac is a wifi standard not a specific router, all routers from Apple have been dual band for a number of years now.

    Correct. I used that router as an example only since it is easily identifiable.

    So how do you tell which mode your Hex-Net is in?

    At my desk I just check to see if it is broadcasting WiFi or if it can be pinged.
    In the car it's impossible to see since my DLC is so deeply buried I have to practically lay on the ground to connect it, but same thing.

    Reminds me of the time I terrified a rental van full of people by whizzing though a single flashing red light...
    Without 3 lamps it's difficult to tell if it's a caution or stop so I look for the sign on the side of the road.

    Yeah, I know, but I have 11n in my iMac, iPhone, iPad & AirPort Express so I was wondering what the Hex-Net unit itself used. Uwe says 11g.

    OT, but personally I don't like the design of the new AirPort Extreme Base Station; why didn't Apple just stay with the smaller case.

    Should have used the old 11b/g spaceship design!

    My network is the previous (flat) AirPort Extreme and 2 AirPort Express used as extenders.

    HEX-NET works perfectly attached to the N network and it is set to automatic on the AirPort.




    iNet shows it attached with a max rate of 54Mbps

    Does it show up as VCHN or did you have to name it?
