how can i set up an airport express for multiple computer access to a printer and scanner?  we have a Westell 327W modem that is apparently also a router.  the Westell device generates wireless internet access.

thank you!

    Since you already have an Internet gateway device (the Westell), you just need to reconfigure your AirPort Express Base Station (AX) as a wireless client. In this configuration, the AX will join the existing wireless network and be available to share an attached USB printer to all other network clients.

     

    Note: Although you can connect a multi-function printer (one that provides scanning, copying, faxing feature, in addition to, printing) to the AX's USB port, the AX will only support the printing feature.
