    I just picked up my first Mac – 15” MBP. God is this thing fast, 4gigs of ram :bowdown:

    Anyway is there anyway to be connected to two different wireless networks? I like to listen to music through my home stereo with the airport express dealy I have but then I can’t surf the web without a leash:greddy:

    if I get one of those wireless network cards will it work? Not the EVOD Verizon one or anything just a express 34 or whatever it’s called

    or maybe will the airport express do bluetooth?

    why can't you surf using what you got?
    I'm not following this story well for some reason...
    why do you want 2 wireless networks? and why do you need to be plugged in?

    The computer will connect to whichever wireless connection I choose. If I want to listen to music I have to choose my Airport express base station that is connected to my stereo in my living room. But my linksys wireless hub is in office on the other end of my house with my cable modem. The computer can only be connected to one wireless connection at a time as far as I know so. I want to sit in my Eames Lounge chair, listening to Tool & surf the web at the same time.

    Can't you setup an airport express on the wireless network, then it acts as a repeater of sorts?

    Please refer to the owners manual for your airport express.


    You don't need 2 wireless connections.

    You need to think things over, is all. :o
