Airport Express: Will this work?

Recommended Posts

In my room I have a Macbook using wireless connection from a 2wire. I also have a pc next to it, but can't connect the pc to the internet because there are no ethernet plugs in my room. If I get an Apple Airport Express to place in my room, configure it to extend my wireless signal from the 2wire, will I be able to plug in the pc to the airport express via ethernet cable? And will it have internet and work?

You'd probably be better off getting a wireless network card for the PC. Extending wireless networks (WDS) never works very well, especially between the AirPort and the 2wire. You can pick up a decent wireless network card on NewEgg for $20 or $30 USD.
