I already have a non-apple router. Is there anyway to use an airport express for AirPlay without replacing my router with an AirPort Extreme?

I can't replace my router with an airport express as my modem is not near the speakers.

    Yes, I do this at home.
    If you open the AirPort Utility, go to the Wireless tab and choose 'Join a wireless network' then add your current WiFi network and put in the password you can use the AirPort Express for AirTunes at the same time as being connected to the internet.

  • Yes, you can use airplay with non apple router as long as your device has airplay such as apple tv, iphone5 5s, or device with an airplay. Airplay works with any wifi signal.
