    From http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1731:

    You can still try, maybe this information isn't up to date. Simply do this:

    - Airport Utility 5.6 (older version)
    - Manual Configuration
    - Airport
    - Wireless
    - From the drop down menu select "Join Network" (I don't know the exact phrase, could be "Client Mode")
    - A little checkbox should show up saying "Allow Ethernet Clients"
    - select the checkbox and restart the APX

    i don't have any way to try this out, but from previous discussions on this, i believe if a G express is in extend mode (or WDS), the ethernet port will be connected to the wireless network. and since you're running an extreme as your main base, you should be able to try this out.

    if the express is in join mode, you must have the newer N version.

    also small personal rant here, your post was up for 3 hours, before you started getting upset that you had no answers, i know it can be frustrating as you want an answer "now" but remember that all the answers here come from people helping out of their own goodwill, and due to the global nature of the net, and peoples odd schedules, sometime it will take a day or 2 before you get an answer.
