Hi all. I have a time capsule as my base station. Is it possible to add an airport express to the network without physically connecting it to the time capsule as I want to use airtunes and my stereo is nowhere near my mac. Thanks for your help. I havnt a clue how to go about this as I am new to mac as of 3 days ago.

Any help / instructions would be much appreciated.

It is possible. I've done tree weeks ago. You can use wizzard configuration on Airport expres and choose "add device to existing network". Than Time capsule DHCP add IP address to you Airport Express.

If you would like you can download configuration file and get it to your Airport Express. Than you set your password for Wireless net security and everything should be working.
Try following link for config file : Air_Express.baseconfig - File Shared from Box.net - Free Online File Storage
Good luck.
