    Ok, so I bought an Express, hoping to put my printer in another room and print, and wanted to extend my wifi coverage.

    I have a Printer/Scanner/Copier. Seems that I can only print via Express.
    When I try to scan it says something about USB not connected. So no Scans.
    It there a work around?

    2nd, before I return it....
    Can I keep the express and use my Netgear N router to have full coverage at my house? I tried the auto setups to no avail.

    I am router/IP/whatever challenged, so go easy on me.

    Thanks

    from everything i have researched you can only print... guess it depends how much you actually scan......
