Using Airport Express WITHOUT an internet connection...

Hello all,

For reasons dealing with my inept cable company (Charter Communications...they've taken a month to get out to me and install my cable/internet services, and I am STILL waiting), I don't have a wireless network right now.

However, I would love to be able to use AirTunes. I've hooked up my Airport Express, but it is not showing up in my Airport Admin Utility at all. I am pretty sure I have read that AEx has the ability to stream tunes without having to have an internet connection, but so far, no go.

Does anyone have any advice?

On a related note...I'd love to be able to print to my printer upstairs wirelessly (that one resides near the Airport Extreme), so...same sort of question. I probably won't have internet for another 2 weeks (Gah! Should have gone with satellite and DSL), so any help would be appreciated (i can access internet at work).

Thanks in advance!
