Bonjour all.

Just bought an AirPort Express at my nearest and only Apple Store.

Anyways,

Here's the story.

Wireless Router, Macbook in office.

Windows :sick: based PC in Dining room cannot pick up the wireless signal very well, due to the fact it's next to a fridge, two thick walls and on the other side of the house. I connected the AirPort Express to a power plug two meters away from this PC and now trying to figure out how to boost the wireless internet. I have installed AirPort Utility on both machines and connected it all up. Does that mean it's now connected to the AirPort Express or when selecting wireless network i should have a option in choosing the AirPort Express?

The signal on the PC has gone up one to Good rather then Weak since connected and plugged into the wall... but it still is on the original wireless connection.

Hope someone can help out.

Shanks,
