I would like to use my hot spot wi-fi router, with only USB connection to be used to gain Internet access through my airport express. Instead of land line or Ethernet cable, when traveling or at work abroad over seas. Is this possible or do I need a land line to connect the airport express instead of only a USB connection?

    Unfortunately, the USB port on the AirPort Express is only to support USB printers ... so you will not be able to gain Internet access via a USB-connected Wi-Fi Hotspot router.

    Sorry, but USB port on an AirPort Express will only support a compatible USB printer.

     

    You will need to provide the Express with a broadband Ethernet connection if you want it to function as a wireless router providing Internet access for your other wireless devices.
