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,
QUOTE Thanks

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.
QUOTE Thanks
