So far, streaming audio over Airport Express in my large house has been a bit unstable - the audio stream often gets interrupted.

 

Now I have been thinking of using a wired Ethernet network instead of wireless transmission.

 

My question: The Airport Express has an Ethernet port. Is it possible to access the Airport Express wired to an Ethernet network and use it to listen to streamed audio?

 

Question two: And still use its wireless functionality to access the Internet?

 

What about the Airport Extreme in this regard?

    Yes, you can configure the AirPort Express for a roaming network.

    Yes, you can use an AirPort Extreme in a roaming network configuration; no, you cannot use it for streaming.
