Connecting Airport Extreme to Express with ethernet cable between separate buildings.

Can I extend my network from my house to my shop building (100' away) by running an ethernet cable from an Airport Extreme out to the shop and connecting that to an Airport Express? I don't think I'll get a good wireless connection because of all the walls the signal would have to go through, including one that is stucco and metal lath.

    Yes, that Ethernet connection will work well. The signal in the shop should be every bit as strong as the signal in the house.
