Apple Airport extreme setup with the orignal airport express

Last Modified: 2016-02-09
Hi, pretty quick question about Airport extreme setup.  It appears the extreme is the controller for all the Airport Express bridged wirelessly for the house.   Correct me if I'm wrong but it appears the Aiport express acts as an AP to rebroadcast the wireless signal that it obtained wirelessly from the Extreme.  I was able to connect an ethernet cable from the Airport Extreme and received a LAN IP for my laptop.  My question is can the express be hardwired into LAN for better through put and act as an AP that way?
