    Sorry for asking a question on my first post but I have already learned how to use my macbook from you. Many Thanks!! I am trying to hook my Samsung tv up to the internet could I use an Airport express to extend my Extreme and plug my tv into the ethernet on the express and how would I set this up. Thanks

    You sure can! In AirPort Utility, select the Express, enter Manual Setup, and once in the Wireless tab, set Wireless Mode to Join a wireless network and check off Allow Ethernet clients

    Edit: Sorry, I just realized you wanted to extend the wireless network as well. You should be able to use the Ethernet port to connect the TV if you select Extend a wireless network too, but I can't confirm this myself.

    I don't really need to extend just my choice of words I just want to be able to connect using the express instead of the Samsung WIFI adapter which I've heard can be a pain. My Extreme covers all of my house so I don't really need to extend. Thanks
