    Hello guys.

    I was just wondering, If I buy and airport express and use it to extend the wireless signal around my house, can I plug an ethernet cable on it and have that computer use the internet connection coming from it?

    dsl/cable modem -> airport extreme/time capsule -> airport express -> wired connection -> computer

    Nope. AE only has a USB port and an ethernet port going in. There's nothing going out.

    I am trying to have the same setup, but I can't get the wired signal from the Airport Express ethernet port, how you perform the setup?

    Thanks
