    I'd like to get Airport Express, but I don't want the wireless-g to slow down my wireless-n network...
    does any other manufacturer make something comparable to Airport Express that is wireless-n?

    You could probably put the Airport in Wireless N only mode.

    i should probably be a little clearer...
    i want airport express mainly for airtunes (and i already have other devices using my wireless-n router)

    i was under the impression that airport express was only wireless-g, meaning there would be no "n only" mode... and if you're talking about putting my router in "n only" then wouldn't that render the airport express basically useless as the two wouldn't be able to communicate?

    I would also be interested to hear of an alternative- I like the compact packaging of the Airport Express but I've just had a second unit die after less than one year of use. Apple will possibly replace it but I'd just rather have a unit that is likely to last longer than the AE's tend to.
