    I did a search but couldn't find the answer.

    I am new to Wi-Fi. Next week my wife will be bringing home a 16 GB iPad 2, Wi-Fi that she received as a gift. I will get an Apple Airport Express Base Station to accommodate it. I use an iMac as my desktop, OS 10.5.8.

    My question is what's the range of the Airport Express? Must the iPad be used in the same room as the Airport Express? Can it be used a few rooms over from it?

    Thanks for the help!

    Unless you have a mansion or your walls are extremely thick, then you should cover the whole house with wifi access.

    Despite its name, Airport Express is simply a wifi router in an Apple-like form factor. Not the best router around but perfectly adequate for most consumer applications.

    Sounds good for me and pretty easy to setup in applications/utilities.
