Reduce travel gear by one device with AirPort Express
Authored by: cmac6126 on Apr 21, '09 09:50:05AM

I've been doing this for a while too. Also comes in handy when I'm travelling out of the country and don't want to be stung with the data roaming charges, I just hook the Express up and create my own personal network for surfing while in the hotel. I'd recommend getting both the retractable RJ-45 and USB-Dock Connector cables for added compactness when travelling. Only a few dollars each on eBay.

We have two Expresses in our house. I discovered that my original Express would work fine, but the newer N-speed has a problem. It continually connects and disconnects with the iPhone USB so it doesn't charge properly. I have to admit I have not tried the newer Express to do this since the last firmware update. I'm guessing the OP is talking about a new Express and that this bug is fixed? Or maybe it's just my Express? I'd be interested to hear other folks experiences with the newer model.

At home we leave the original Express USB plugged into a spare iPhone dock and stereo in the kitchen for as a handy local charger and remote music station. The Remote app has saved me many trips upstairs to the study!
