after many years Im now back to Mac in 2010. In 04 I purchased the Airport xpress mainly to listen to music wirelessly. It streams fine with my new MBP. The only problem is that before I had the ethernet cable connected to the base station and i connect to the internet that way. I was hoping to find some way to just completely not connect to the internet through the apple base station.

My VZW router has better signal than the base station next to me.
is there anyway to connect to both the apple base station and my vzw router with airport?

or for what i want to do is there an alternative to just streaming music that i can pick up some where at a radio shack or something?

any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
