B&O Beosound 3200 compatibility with Airport Express
I wish to play iTunes from the PC in another room through my Bang & Olufsen Beosound 3200 system. (I already have a wifi router set up).
I'd like confirmation - before buying it - that the Airport Express will link to my B&O system; and also confirm if/which additional cable needs to be purchased.
Thanking you kindly in advance

Does this replace Wifi
Can I take this to school to set up a wifi hotspot, similar to the service on the iPhone. Ontop of that, can it act as a wifi router in my house? Basically, can I just just plug this thing in and get wifi?

It will create a wifi signal that you can use but will not provide internet unless you plug in to your internet provider. I use it in my classroom as a wifi generator for my apple devices to work wirelessly in the class (not to be confused with internet connection). I can then send signals to apple tv for display. If you don't need internet, then all you need for a stand alone presentation system is electricity, iPhone/ipad/mac, this router, apple tv, and either a tv or projector. It is a fantastic system!

Can I use Express as router connected to modem & Time Capsule as a way to extend wifi signal?
Here's my dilemma: My modem, AirPort Express, and speakers are in my living room. The speakers are plugged into AirPort Express so I can play my music from any device. At the other end of the house is my study where I'd like to place the Time Capsule so that I can backup my laptop and so that I can extend the wifi signal in my house. Is that possible? And even if it is, am I wasting the Time Capsule's router capabilities by using the Express as the router and the Time Capsule as a means to extend signal?
And why on earth is Express the only router capable of connecting to speakers??

Theoretically you can do that, BUT ... yes you are "wasting" some of the Time Capsule router capabilities. But if you don't need to use those features, I guess it's not a waste except that you are paying for them.
The bigger question is whether the WiFi signal from the Express is strong enough to reach your office so that the Extreme can connect to the WiFi provided by the Express.
A better solution is to connect the Extreme directly to the ISP modem (whether cable or DSL,) and setting the Extreme to provide the WiFi, with the Express extending the WLAN. You may need some help in running new coax, telephone or Ethernet cabling, but it would be worth it unless the expense is prohibitive. Wired is almost always preferable to wireless.

Connect my wd my book live nas drive to airport express
Im looking to purchase the airport express to extend my extremes wifi network. I hoping to put a western digital hardrive into the Ethernet slot on the express, as the express will be in the middle of the house enabling my office mac to share the content.
Hope that makes sense.

Does the new Airport Express have noticeable range improvements from it's predecessor?
I currently use the old Airport Express to extend my wireless network broadcasted from my Time Capsule 2nd generation.
Unfortunately, the room I have my Airport Express in, which has poor service to the Time Capsule directly, is not always within working range.
If I upgraded my Airport Express to the newer unit, should I expect to see a NOTICEABLE improvement in coverage range?
I'm specifically asking those users who have used both; do you notice a significant improvement worthy of spending $100 on upgrading my device, keeping in mind this is really only so I can get strong WiFi extended from my Time Capsule and have it more reliable than the extended signal I currently have from the older Airport Express.
