  • No, you cannot use a single Airport Express to extend non airport express routers. If you use 2 or more you can accomplish that by plugging the first into your modem with an ethernet cable, then use the second to join the first through wifi as a range extender. An even better solution is to use an Airport Extreme (which is an extra $100) as the main router (connected with an ethernet cable to your modem) and then add an Airport Express to the Airport Extreme via wifi.
