    I currently use the Airport Express to stream my music from itunes to my home stereo. It works great! In the near future, I will need a router to share my internet connection between my desktop and laptop computers. Can I use the Airport Express to stream music and use as a router at the same time?

    thanks.

    thanks for getting back with me. I guess that will save me from having to buy a router for my internet.

    Would the network names be the same for internet and music?

    When you set up your Airport Express, you give your network a name and you give your Airport Express a separate name. The Airport Express name will show up in iTunes, but the network name will be what you look for in a wireless internet connection.

    You can also run a USB printer wirelessly through your Airport Express.
