    airport express as wirless card
    Hello ppl

    My girlfriend has a 700mhz emac with Panther installed but without Airport. I want to connect it to the wireless home network we have and i wanted to ask you guys, if there is a way i can use Airport express(the one with airtunes) as a "wireless card" to connect to my network.

    here is a small scheme

    Emac <----ethernet----> airport express <----wireless----> wireless dsl router <--- internet

    anyone know?

    thanks in advance,

    Closer than you think.
    Performa 6116 2GBSCSI 8MB OS 7.5.3
    That won't work.

    AE's only receive IP's via ethernet and only give IP's via wireless.

    I know this thread is old but I almost gave up on this because it is a top result on Google search.

    Anyway, this WILL work. In fact, I'm posting this using my Aiport Express as a wireless card. I used these two pages as guides:

    How to setup WDS between a wireless router and an AirPort Express - Download Squad
    WDS Linked router network - DD-WRT Wiki

    Actually, a stock Belkin N1 is my main router, a Linksys WRT54GS is running dd-wrt firmware as a repeater bridge, and the Airport Express is getting the signal from the Linksys. My PC is getting internet through the ethernet port on the Airport Express.
