I had created a network with my airport extreme in one of the rooms in my house, but i want to have wifi signal in all my home.
I want to know if i can extend the wifi signal of that airport extreme with another airport extreme but instead of connecting it wirelessly can i connect it via ethernet?

You can use an Airport Express to extend your wifi network in your home. I use one for this purpose on a second level of my home to connect my Samsung Smart TV to the home wifi system and stream programming, Netflix etc.

Yes, if you do not want to connect to the Internet you can operate as a stand-alone access point in bridge mode with both LAN ports. Also, you may connect the Airport Express wirelessly to another access point made by Apple (or other WDS-supporting device), in which case both Ethernet ports are available for LAN devices and you can still access the network and/or Internet through the other wireless access point's connected network.

Can I hook the express up to my cable router that is also hooked up to my other D-Link wireless router? Would I be able to have two wifi routers on?Answer
That is the way we are running our network now. Although they are different brands. The cable router (Motorola) is hardwired to an Apple Airport Extreme, it in turn is wired to an airport express as well as wirelessly to a second airport extreme. The whole system runs just fine. The two airport extremes publish the same SSID whereas the airport express has a different name with the stereo attached to it.

Sure. All wireless (and wired) clients can access all wireless (and wired) resources on the LAN via this router.

will it handle 4k video streaming

The Airport Express only has 100 Base T connections. You should look to the Airport Extreme instead for its 1000 Base T connections to support 4K video streaming.
Also, you should try and use wired connections for 4K video streaming and avoid wireless connections in my opinion. Otherwise, the wireless connection could be the weakest link in the communication chain limiting 4K streaming performance.

Does it support remote syslog, snmp and ntp protocols?
I would like to know if the AirPort Express can play with enterprise management systems such as sending logs to remote syslog server, manage with SNMP and sync with NTP server. Please advice, thank you.

it is 2.0 but 3.0 would be wasted on a wireless connection because of the slow speed of 802.11n

Hello. This 2012 Airport Express model does support wireless 802.11 a. However, I believe you are referring to 802.11 ac. The current 2012 Airport Express does not support this type of network but it can support any a/b/g/n network.
