Unfortunately, most non-AirPort routers are not compatible with Apple's implementation of Wireless Distribution System (WDS)...so it very unlikely that your D-Link router can be extended wirelessly with the AirPort Express Base Station (AX).
The few non-AirPorts that are known to work are:
o Linksys WRT54G or WRT54GS (not v5)
o Belkin F5D7230-4 and F5D7231
o BT Voyager 2091
o Netgear WGR614 v6
o Buffalo WGR-G54Mac Mini Intel Core Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.4), 1.66 GHz 1 GB RAM 100 GB HD
I notice that you included the Netgear WGR614 on your list. Do you know of a page that has setup information for that router? I've been searching for months with no good results. I have had no trouble using the Airport Express as an AirTunes hub, but I can't get it to extend the network.
Thanks for any info you can share.

I have a Belkin F5D7132 Range extender and I can get it to work allright with both the Macs and PCs in my house. I am having problems getting it to stream music via Itunes into Airport Express. I know the Macs can connect just fine. Do the AX units get confused if there are multiple access points with the same name?2 ibook G4, 1 iMac 20", 2 Wintel
