    can AirPort Express get G signal and produce N draft?
    my home network currently running wi-fi G. Is it possible that AirPort Express get that G signal and produce N signal "while it works as wireless extender".

    thanx in advance.

    I'm afraid not. As soon as the Airport Express connects to a 54g network that's what it will repeat.

    In addition to this it can only extend networks that originate from another Airport Express or an Airport Extreme.

    You could get 2. Connect one to your router by cable and get that to broadcast an 'N' signal then wirelessly connect to that with a second one at 'N' speeds.

    You'd end up with 2 wireless networks bridged by a router.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
