    Sharing a wireless connection to an "un-wireless" computer.
    Is it posssible to share a wireless connection through an airport express and its ethernet connection to a computer that does not have wireless capability?

    just to make this more clear, I have an airport express connected to an existing network, and over it I share music and have a printer connected, can I also plug in an ethernet cable and share the internet connection?

    Heres another question, say I wanted to share that connection to more than one computer, can I plug that ethernet cable into a router and plug some computers into that? How about two routers with some patch cable?

    And if I wanted to be able to remote desktop into those computers wirelessly over the network, could I do that?

    Yep. As long as your computer is plugged in to the network, either wired or wirelessly, you can remote desktop to it. (Assuming you have it Enabled and Firewall allows it).

    If you can Ping a computer on your network, you can access it.
