    Can Airport stream itunes and extend my wireless network at the same time?

    I have an Airport in my 3rd floor bedroom that I use to feed iTunes to a receiver. When using my iPad (and iPhone) upstairs they are too slow since my wireless router is on the 1st floor. I have an Ethernet connection in my bedroom and could plug the Airport into it. If I hard wire the Airport can I still stream iTunes to my receiver and have it extend my wireless network at the same time?

    An airport express? Sure it can do what you want it to.

    Yes. I have an airport express connected to my network with a cat-5 cable, and it provides wireless and airtunes to the connected speakers.

    I have 2 Airports and have tried both. Even reset one and started over. Have tried all security settings but always get the following.:confused: Also have tried selecting neighbors networks with same results.

    If I remember correctly there was something about having to put one in Bridge Mode I believe ...............................

    Yea that sounds right because before I had two Airport Express's and now have an airport extreme with a USB drive attached for backups
