    Ok, i bought an airport express to stream music to my hifi, but i'm wondering if theres a way to use both the airport basestation and my wifi router without having to change networks? currently there are two networks at home: my current wifi and now the new network coming from the airport.

    thanks:)

    Go to the airport utility in the utilities folder in applications. If you go through the set up you come to a point where it asked you if you want to join a network or start one. Just select join and tell it which network to join. You then set a name for your airport express and it restarts. You can then see it from itunes while you are connected to your existing wifi router.
