I'm in the process of buying a house and strongly considering a wireless network because there is no cable connection in the room that will be the home office. And because I can't run ethernet through the plaster walls.

I can't decide if I could simply use the AirPort Express or if I will need to purchase the AirPort Extreme. If I can simply buy the AirPort Express and have it connected to the cable modem which can be located in the living room, and connect my home theater system to it, then I think the Express will work great. The office will be located on the second floor, maybe 60 feet from the living room.

So I guess I'm confused what the point of the Extreme Base Station is besides having a built-in dial-up modem. Can anyone tell me why I may want to get the Extreme over the Express?

I will be connecting to the network with a 1.6Ghz G5 which I will need to get a wireless card for. I may want to put a beige G3 on the network too but haven't really thought about how I woud do that yet.
