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?
The answer is "yes" for all three questions.

Really appreciate you taking time to respond.
I stopped by the Apple store this weekend and one of their sales people ( not one of their genius bar people) told me NO to all questions. I tend to believe more answers from people in this forum but just realize that I have not mentioned one possibly important point:
the main AP to which I will be connecting the airport express is not an Airport Extreme/Express AP.

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)
