    Hey guys, I know this seems like a silly question, but it's just something I want to ensure before I go out and buy an Airport Express.

    I can plug in a CAT5e cable from my router into the Airport Express and it should work fine, correct?

    Modem -> Wired Router -> Airport Express

    Thanks!

    It should. Just set it up in Bridge Mode in AirPort Utility to allow your current router to do the DHCP and have the Express act as a wireless access point.

    Works just fine for me. As skorpien wrote, Bridge Mode is probably what you're after.
