I'd use the Airport Utility (go to Applications> Utilities> Airport Utility).

Click on your Airport express on the left and hit continue,

Name it (if you want to change the name), add a password if you want. Continue.

Check the box to create a new network, continue.

Enter the details for the network you want and continue.

If you are connected via ethernet you'll get this screen to set up internet business. I imagine you're using DHCP, so check the first one and continue.

Here's the details of what you've set up. Hit update and all should be ok...
