    So, my sister has a couple of components in a room that needs an ethernet cable connected directly to them. The router is in another room so I bought her an Airport Express (should be arriving tomorrow).

    I originally thought she only needed one device connected and I had read that the Airport Express can be used as an extender/access point.

    Now that she needs two devices, can I simply connect a switch to the Airport Express and connect both devices?

    I've never tried a wireless extender or access point before.

    you want to set it up to join the wireless network. (only mention because you used the word extend in your post, that doesn't work easily with non apple routers)
