I am looking to put a wireless router in my other home and was wondering if i should go with the airport extreme or express. I have the extreme in my house right now and it works great but its another $80. Any thoughts thanks so much.

If the airport express will do everything you need it to, you might as well save the money and go with that. I bought an extreme because I wanted more room for wired connections for my xbox 360 and two desktop computers.

If u just want to play music on your stereo go for the express - it will also connect up to 10 computers if u use it as a wireless hub - depends on what your end use need is. If you are like most, and have no back up of your data then go for a Time Capsule - as least you have some data back up then as well as the extreme style Hub.
