Can i use my airport express to both extend my network and connect a printer for wireless printing at the same time or do i need two airport expresses
I have an airport express hooked up to a printer in my office which is located a considerable distance from my base station and I have an IMac in my office as well. I was hoping that the airport express could be configured to extend my network as well as be used to connect the printer to the network. When I go to configure it it is more of an either one or the other proposition by asking me if I want to do one or the other during the set up. Do I need two airport expresses if I want to do both things?

No. One ae is all you need. I have it configured to extend network, USB printer now on network ( not an airplay printer by the way) and have sky box plugged into Ethernet.
Works great. Well worth it.

If I use a network cable to connect an Airport Express to the LAN port of the Airport Extreme will they be on the same WiFi network?
