    Can an airport express be used to add wireless to a PC with the ethernet cable? I have an existing wireless network and I want to use the airport express rather than a usb adapter to add wireless to my PC to join the network, is this possible?

    Yes, you can definitely use an airport express for that purpose: you set it to join a wireless network and then set the checkbox to allow Ethernet clients.
    You can then plug your computer into the Ethernet port and it should work fine.

    yes to everything phil says, but you must use a newer (last couple years) N version, so choose wisely if buying second hand.
