    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?

    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.
