Yeah, Airport Express can be set up as either base station or repeater. In addition you can play iTune wirelessly, and share a USB printer.

daughter anna, you should plug in the cable modem to Airport Express. If you plug it into your computer, it will take some time to get new DHCP lease from your service provider. That's probably the lag you saw.
