    I am trying to figure out a way to hook my PC to my one Ethernet slot verizon modem, and keep it with my airport express, but the cable is too short and they are two far apart, and considering only one can have the cable at a time it is a pain to keep switching.

    I Do NOT want a hub, no more wires...can I hook this
    usb wireless

    to my pc desktop and have it work with the airport express?
    or must it be a mac?

    if not, what can I do to make these both have INTERNET at the same time?
    would this work?
    Splitter

    You can only use the USB port on the AirPort Express for a printer.

    I know that! I want to use the wireless capabilities of the airport on my pc, with a wireless card or adaptor can I hook it to my pc wirelessly or with a splitter?

    Well, I answered my own question after combing the forums, other than here, but for anyone who has this issue...you need a 802.11n compatible wireless card, or usb adapters.

    look on amazon, for Belkin Wireless USB G. They are small, and work on the 802.11n/g interface airport does, then use the manual and the airport cd to install the software.

    Make sure it says "works with 802.11g devices"!!!!!

    then follow "Bonjour" and cd software instructions, etc.
