    new aptv, i have an airport extreme and and express as an expander..if i purchase a hd movie it takes about three - 4 hours to download. Is this normal?

    also have high speed cable internet. Ive checked the internet several times and it is fast on my hardwired mac. Ran a speed test Ping 82 ms download 12.7 mbps upload 1.12mbps

    would i be better off plugging my aptv into the express? would this even make a difference?

    or should these things be hardwired?

    You can try connecting it via Ethernet cable and see, if that is an improvement, but 12Mb/s are 1.5MB/s, thus you should be able to download more than 5GB per hour, and an iTunes HD movie is smaller than that.
