    I've got 2 PCs with no wireless network capability.
    I was wondering if I'm actually able to join the current wireless network with the airport and use a network switch to share the wifi.
    No luck till now.
    What should I do?
    I did all the job in my mac but when I connect the cable from the pc to switch and connect from the switch to the AEB (with green light) it doesn't seem to work.
    What should I do?

    Huh?

    If your PCs have no wireless capability they obviously cannot use the wireless. What exactly are you trying to do here?

    Can you not plug in the ethernet cable to the AEB and use it to join networks?

    Yes, you can, but a hard-wire connection has nothing to do with a wireless network.

    Ah!!! I see!!!!!
    I actually own http://www.apple.com/airportexpress/

    The router is quite far away from the PC and I had an old airport express (really small thingy).

    I was hoping if I can use that to connect to the internet.

    I'll be saving around 10euros for not buying a usb wireless receiver.

    I feel so stupid that I got the name mixed up :eek:
