I am considering using an airport express to extend my existing wireless network to a room where I can't get a cable to.

I will need to connect a at least 3 devices to the airport express.

 

The questions are:

- is an airport express the right answer to this problem?

- if so, does the ethernet port work (AE on client mode) as a passthru into the main network?

- can I plug a hub to it?

 

Thanks

You will not be able to wirelessly extend your network unless you have an Apple base station as your primary. 1. Airport Extreme (AE)2. Airport Express (AX)3. Time Capsule (TC)
