    Hello, I have an Airport Extreme functioning as my base station. I would like to be able to browse the net while playing music wirelessly through my Airport Express with the 1/8'' audio out. Can anyone point me to some instructions? Thank you.

    Since the Extreme is all set up you just need to configure the Express. If you have not done so already, hold a paperclip in the reset hole and plug it in. Wait until the power light blinks rapidly. Then go to Settings --> Wi-Fi --> select the base station if on iOS. If on a Mac go to Wi-Fi in the menu bar and select the base station. Configure the Express to Join the network. You can then change AirPlay settings as necessary in the AirPort Utility.
