    Okay, I know the basics with these things, but I'm not really sure on their capabilities in terms of what they can and can't do.

    I was thinking of getting one to go in my room with my MacBook, for wireless printer, speakers and maybe hard wire my xbox 360 to it.

    I already have a network in my house for my Wireless internet with the router in another room, so this would only be a little mini-network. But could I connect to both at the same time, so I could get wireless internet as well as printing and airtunes, or could I just integrate the airport express into my existing network?

    Much appreciated.

    That all sounds good except connecting the xbox. I could only bridge with the ethernet port when I was using the express in a WDS. With the other modes, I could never pass an IP to the wired device.

    Hmm, guess I'll keep xbox hard wired to my macbook, as it acts as a nice little wireless adaptor :D

    Especially since Microsoft charge £50-60 for their adaptor!

    Thanks for the reply!
