    I need to be able to plug in an ojo internet video phone into my existing system. Problem is there's not an ethernet wired out connection on the airport express. Can i buy a router and hook it directly to my cable modem, then hook my airport express into that wired router or will that cause issues for my airport express?

    In the velcro closure of America's Hat
    That would work fine.

    Yup, I used to run a system just like that, two computers on the wired router and then the laptops on the wireless.

    Make sure you run the Express in Bridge Mode. This will make the Express act as a wireless access point and all devices, wired or wireless, will be able to communicate with one another.
