I searched all over and haven't been able to find a solution to my problem so hopefully I can get some advice.  I am temporarily away from home and the house I am at has a Verizon FIOS wireless router.  I have an Airport Express that I brought with me to extend the network to the far end of the house where there is little to no wifi signal.  I was able to wirelessly join the active network, but internet speeds were little improved.  I tried plugging my laptop into the Express via an ethernet cable but there shows no sign of activity that way.  While the Express is extending the network, is there a way I can use its LAN port to make a wired connection to my laptop? Any other suggestions?
