The Apple Airport Express base station allows you to share devices such as speakers or printers with a single computer, wirelessly. The possibilities for cool technology projects this introduces are exciting. For instance, using the Airport Express, you can connect speakers in every room in your house to one iTunes library to create a wireless home music network. You can also send print jobs to printers in other rooms.

Whatever your goal, if you need to share data from your Mac wirelessly, the Airport Express makes it happen with an electrical outlet and a little configuration. Here’s how.

Start by plugging the Airport Express into an electrical outlet in the room you want to use it in. Then go to your computer and, if you don’t already have the Airport Utility software installed, install it from the CD that comes with the Airport Express.
