Hi Team

I am completely replacing all of the wireless networking equipment I have due to change of location etc.

I would like to use an Airport Express as it has the airplay function to stream music without the annoying compression of getting a bluetooth receiver for the stereo.

Ideally I am looking at only a router and then a bridged router/AP.

If signal is still not ideal in all areas I will go with another bridged router/AP.

I like DD-wrt. I am trying to avoid the apple airport equipment as much as possible (no offense apple but the firmware on dd-wrt is far more flexible) but acknowledge that to airplayaudio I may as well get the express as it is same price as the aTV and has the bonus of wifi for further network distribution covering more of the house.

We use 9 apple devices, 3 windows pcs, 2 android devices, airprint printers, aTV, Dvico media player, samsung wireless TV etc etc and I am not trying to open a debate on the usefulness of apple routers - it is just not the direction I want to go for the entire network (price being part of that but as mentioned earlier configurability also.

Does anyine have any experience or advice as to how well the airport express will integrate as a bridge (not the main router) with DD-WRT routers?

I thank you all in advance.
