grymes is on a distinguished road

To start off, I just recently bought a MacBook Pro and have been diving into the world of Mac and all its goodness. I also have a fairly decent stereo with a pair of Bowers & Wilkins speakers that are begging for more music. The solution perhaps is to get the Airport Express with AirTunes from Apple. My major concern before buying is that it won't work given my current network connection. This would be going in my apartment where I have wireless internet provided to by the apartment building. I am trying to understand if I would need a router for any reason to make this work. The way I have been understanding it is that it acts as a router and you can even use this as a stand alone unit if I did have an internet connection coming out of the wall. Let's say I was stuck in the stone ages and had no internet, would I still be able to use the AirPort Express to send music to my stereo via my laptop? And if I did want to play music to the stereo and still be using my apartment building's wireless network, is that doable without having direct access to the buildings router? It isn't WEP encrypted. I hope this makes sense and thanks for your help.

Thanks Mac-Forums.
