    Just finishing setting up Airport Express, works great and was easy to setup. Should i just leave it and my cable modem on 24/7 or do most people shut them off at night and when going to work.

    I leave mine on all the time. Rarely if ever turning it off or restarting it.

    I leave mine on all the time, unless I'm taking it with me when I travel. Be sure you have a complex WPA2 password for your network, with upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters.

    Mine's been on 24 hours a day for the last 3 years, works flawlessly.

    Only slight gripe is the stupidly bright green light!

    I use WAP2 with upper; lower case numbers but no special characters. if i did want to make it stronger do I do that via the airport express or under system preferences and network.
