    Ok, I have an airport express that I was previously using as a wireless router,but now I got a new router with built in wireless. Now my question is is my airport express capable of picking up my new routers wireless signal and sending it through the ethernet port to a PC I have it hooked up to. Ive been trying to set this up all morning but no such luck yet.

    Sorry, not very clear on what you are asking to do
    Not sure why you are trying to send it through your ethernet port, when the express is wireless.

    You can have the Express capture your wireless signal and pass it on to a desktop. When you set the Express to join the network, it should automatically set the ethernet port to allow the PC to grab an IP using DHCP.

    I'm pretty sure they call it bridge mode.

    I dont' know if it will work or not, but I see that option on my AE... you could give it a shot and see how it works.

    Good luck!
