Here's the setup. Non apple cable modem hooked up to an ethernet cable that extends to an outbuilding. I want to hook up the airport express in the outbuilding to the ethernet cable and broadcast a wifi signal through the airport express. Is this possible? Setting it up as a bridge won't work since the internet connection is coming in through the ethernet port, not the wifi signal? Is this a correct assumption? Can I somehow set it up to create a "reverse bridge" to pipe the internet connection through the ethernet port and out the express as a wifi signal?
