    Hii everybody !!

    I would like to know if it's possible to set up a proxy server on an Airport Express that eliminates the use of a computer as Internet host.

    Example

    Router (sends wifi-signal) => Airport Express (recieves wifi-signal and sends Proxy server signal) => "Receiver of Proxy server signal" (in this case a PS3)

    Sorry if it's not really understandable: English is just a second language.

    You have to options.

    1. Connect the AX (Airport Express) to the router via ethernet. Configure the AX to operate in bridge mode, set the SSID to that of the router's.
    2. Setup WDS on the router, setup WDS on the AX.

    I've never tried #2 and it might not be possible if your router does not support WDS.
