I have an airport express question. I read some of the information about the airport express on the apple webpage and spoke to the people at the Mac store, and I seem to be getting conflicting information.

Currently i have a Linksys Wireless Router and 4 port switch (WRT54G) connected to my Linksys Cable Modem (BEFCMU10). My current systems on the network are my iMac (wireless), IBM Thinkpad (wireless), and my XBox (Ethernet).

I wanted to add a Airport Express to my network setup in a client mode to the linksys. It is my understanding that when I do that, the Ethernet port becomes a LAN port, not a WAN port. So my question is does that mean I can connect my XBox into that LAN port and use the Airport Express as a Ethernet to Wireless Bridge?
