    Hi all,

    I've been looking over the Internet for a few hours and occasionally I find a lead, but then it leads me to more confusion & dead-ends. So.

    We have an Orange Livebox with Orange Broadband (sadly) but where I am in the house the connection drops a fair bit. So, is it possible to just get the Apple Airport Express for £70 or whatever it is and extend the Wireless Range? With no wires. So I'll basically put the Airport Express in the middle of me and the Livebox.

    If not, how about the Base Station? Could that replace my Livebox? OR would I plug the Base Station INTO the Livebox and then get the Express?
    (I'd also like the use the audio option on the express you see..)

    I don't fully understand how to do it...

    Thanks a lot!

    The Orange live boxes are terrible. Do yourself a big favour and buy something like a netgear dg834g modem/router on ebay for £15 ish.

    Sadly the airport express or extreme will not work without another modem or the livebox.
