I have the MM's connected to an airport express via the aux connection, it works perfectly. Must admit I have not tried the USB connection, not sure it will work. Then use airplay from your device to the MM's. Hope this helps.

Is Airport Express an extension of my home WiFi? Douse it increase the signal strength of my home WiFi of the room that I put Airport Express in?Answer
You can use an Airport Express to extend your existing home WiFi to a new area, assuming that you can get a decent signal to the Airport Express to begin with (since it needs to have a signal to pass through or relay). For example, let's say you have a house with three rooms where room 1 is where your home WiFi router is, room 3 is where you'd like to get a signal to, and room 2 is in between. Placing your Airport Express in room 3 may give you a stronger WiFi signal there, but it may have a weak signal from your home WiFi and therefore have slower speeds. Instead, by placing the router in room 2, (assuming you get a good signal there) you may be able to get a better signal in all three rooms. It has been my experience that the Airport Express has excellent antennas and has better wireless performance than your typical leased router from an ISP. Try different placements to see what gives you the best results.

using Xbox 360 and iMac
is this the proper device for the following network:
>one Mac (late-model 27" iMac) in the room with the AirPort Express
>one Xbox 360 in a different room
>connection to cable internet via a standard router (furnished by cable provider, working as a wired setup for the iMac now )
and a follow-up question:
Is there any chance this wireless net will interfere with any wireless connections in the house, such as the Mac keyboard or mouse, the Xbox controller or a wireless home phone? I assume the frequencies are very different.

Sure, plug the router into your Airport Express and you should be able to enjoy WiFi to all of the devices (assuming they support it and they are in range). Best bet is to connect the Airport Express to the router (where your iMac is currently plugged in) and power cycle the router, then the Airport Express to 'reset' all of the connections. One thing to note is that sometimes ISP's limit the number of devices connected to your router based on MAC (physical network device) address, so if your iMac was registered as the 'one device' you may have to contact the ISP to reset it so that you can switch to the Airport Express as your primary device. Then, the Airport Express can share that connection out with multiple devices as you describe.

Yes, you will just have to change the mode of the base station to the desired mode. (extender, bridge or as a wifi access point).
Hope this helps!

Sorry but it cannot. Apple says that the "AirPort Express can extend the range only of an AirPort Extreme, AirPort Express, or Time Capsule wireless network."

Play Videos, Play YouTube, Use Quick Time, Or Use VLC?
I understand that this can wirelessly stream audio using the iTunes airplay feature...
BUT can it also stream other forms of audio (when watching a movie in VLC, when watching a movie in quicktime, or when surfing the internet).
Can't wait for your response!

Yes. Some Apps have the Airplay audio selection of iPad, Airport Express or Apple TV etc whichever you have available, integrated into the app, for others, you can change the output in iTunes, and the audio from whatever app you are using is redirected from the iPad speakers to the selected output.
For example, I watch some TV shows in bed using the iPad and a TV Network's own App, and direct the surround sound to my receiver for terrific audio.

Can AirPort Express connect to public wifi such as BTFon or Openzone?
I have a lodge on a holiday park. The park itself has public wifi paid for by a subscription similar to hotels (when going online for the first time you are directed to a login page). The problem is, my lodge is on the edge of the park and I can only use the wifi in one corner of my living room, and not in the dining room or bedrooms. Could the AirPort Express login to the parks wifi and then have my MacBook Pro connect to the AirPort Express?

Depends on how much switching and or routing the device is handling. Running on averages, and at 123.5 vac average, It draws from .11 to .13 amps in "ready" condition. Once some traffic starts flowing, example, iPod playing on line game + media server streaming a movie to apple tv + iPhone watching a stream from netflix, one computer downloading updates. Average power draw 10 watts peaked at 12 watts. Average amps .15 to .3 amps. Hope this helps.
