    How can I set a WiFi network with those? MacPro has no Airport card.

    there will more than likley be a few ways but as you havnt said if you also have a wirless router this is the way I would go.
    ADSL into ethernet port 1 on macpro
    airport express into ethernet port 2 on macpro

    port 2 is the problem

    Thanks FeaRTHiS. That was my original setup. Port 1 works fine. Airport Express is available to my IPad, but no internet. Port 2 is the problem and I do not know how to configure it.

    Job done

    Since there is no official way to do this here is how I did it. Maybe Apple should take a look at this, check it and publish it somewhere.

    1* Enable Internet sharing from Ethernet 1 (PPP) to Ethernet 2 (Airport Express).
    2* Manually configure IPv4 on Port 2 with address 192.168.2.1. Submask at 255.255.255.0
    3* In Airport Utility create a wireless network. Setup connect via Ethernet.
    4* Share connection should be deactivate (bridge mode).
    5* Manually configure IPv4 in menu TCP/IP.
    IP:192.168.2.12
    Subnet mask:255.255.255.0
    Router:192.168.2.1
    DNS:192.168.2.1
