Power mac g4, connecting to the internet

Hi any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

I have a Power Mac G4 dual 876Mhz MDD ,recently bought.

I am trying to connect to the internet and am having no problem when i connect an ethernet cable to a netgear Wireless router that shares the connection.

However as i have an airport express base station, would it be possible to connect the airport express base station to the powermac via ethernet and then connect to the internet wirelessly via the netgear router and airport express base station?

Any help on this would be great.

This should work. As the Airport can act as a remote station with a wired client. This article from Apple should help some. Though it only lists Airport stations. The theory is the same you are just connecting your remote station to a main wireless broadcaster.
