    Default Airport Express Ethernet Plug-in?

    So I have an airport express that extends one of my networks. Can I use an ethernet cord on this and plug it into my computer for Internet? Please help ASAP. Thanks!

    You sure can. I use AP Express devices in my house to extend the network to devices that don't have wireless.

    As bamf-hacker says, yes you can. You can actually use both ethernet ports (on the latest version), even though one is set up as a WAN port... if you’re using the Airport Express in "bridge" mode (wirelessly extending your network), both ports area available for ethernet connections.
