will this boost the signal from my hotspot on my phone
I use my hotspot on my phone to connect. Will the airport work with this or do I need a hardwired internet connection?

You'll need a hardwired connection. The AirPort Extreme or Express need to be plugged into a modem that connects into a cable/DSL/fibre network (Comcast, TImeWarner, Verizon Fios, AT&T as examples) and then send out a wi-fi signal throughout your home/business. You'll also notice a significant (!) increase in internet speed over your phone's hotspot plus the AirPort Extreme can handle up to 50 wireless devices connected to it at once.

Unless your phone offers an Ethernet-out connection (no phones do, to my knowledge), then no, it will not work.
