hi there i was looking into getting a base station but it seemed like overkill for what i need. Is the express just a small airport extreme? so i can just plug it in and away i go? i dont need it to work with an extreme do i? i just need it to give me wireless in my dorm room and kitchen ( next to each other, not big distance ) and to plug my speakers into. so.....can i do that? cheers ( sorry, i know this is a very noob question but i have only just started to look at it and dont quite understand it yet! ) oh and can i use it to extend the range on a non-apple router? i.e. a netgear router, or is it apple only? oh and another thing, looking on apple shop it says that you can connect a printer via USB, can i also plug a USB hard drive into it? my hard drive is mains powered, or cant it do that?
