I have a 2nd generation Airport Express.
Recently I moved into my new apartment with a established wifi modem.
The issue here now being the ideal spot to place Airport is far from the ehternet port and I was wondering if there is a way I can use Airport Express without ehternet connection.

I have read online about how you can set it up in client mode and perform such action with a tethered connection. However due to my Englsh proficiency I wasn't too sure about if you can do it wireslessly.

What is the official word on it?

Airport Express 2nd Gen, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
