    i dont understand? what is it your trying to do? Do you want to create a new wireless network, or connect your computer to an existing wireless network?

    they both have different functions, so one of them isnt going to suit your needs.

    Airport express can be used to extend the range of an existing wireless network, or create a new wireless network from a wired access point.

    A wireless card will connect your computer to an existing wireless network.

    The wireless card won't do much good if you don't have a wireless router with it, like the Airport Extreme/Express, because they connect your computer to a router which then connects you to the internet or network. So unless your computer already has a built in wireless card, you will need to get the wireless card and the Airport Extreme or Express.
