They should be the same... Either way, they are both talking wirelessly to your internet router...

Direct wired to airport extreme will always be better than wifi. Go ethernet if you can.

My bad. Airport express is not airport extreme. You are right.

Both being $100 devices but the Express being a somewhat devoted WiFidelity extender, I would hope it would yield a better/faster connection over a generalist like the ATV. Not all WiFi devices are created the same.

Worth a trial?
