    Question How to extend a wireless network with airport express but non-apple router

    I have been trying to extend my wireless network in my house. Right now I have a dsl modem/router provided by Century Link and an older AirPort express (not sure how old but it uses AirPort utility v5.6). I want to be able to share my printer and use AirTunes. Currently I have the AirPort plugged into the router and setup to create a new wireless network. I would like to combine them so I don't have to switch between to print and play music. I am not really sure where to start or if it even possible. Any info would be great!

    Having done some digging, the answer to your question is 'maybe'. It looks like some people have managed to use an AirPort Express to extend a wireless network provided by a 3rd Party Wireless router, but not without some configuration issues. Take a look at some of these Apple Support threads:
