    Bridge allows you to plug a wired Ethernet device into the active jack on the AirPort Express while it's connected to your WiFi.

    Extend allows you to extend your main base station's WiFi signal for other WiFi devices to use.

  • "Bridge" and "extend" both mean the same thing in wireless networking.
