Can Airport Extreme extend my existing wireless connection (from Cable modem) to another WinXP SP3 PC via Ethernet?

I have a Rogers Cable Modem, that is connected via Ethernet to my DLINK DIR-615 wireless network. I use it to connect my main WinXP PC via Ethernet and wireless to my iPhone, wife's iPod Touch, and 2 Sony PSP3000s (not all simultaneously). I'd like to purchase the Airport Express or Airport Extreme Base Station to extend the existing wireless connection to another room in my apartment to use for a) another WinXP SP3 PC, and b) my lovely Apple TiBook G4.

Can either Airport Express/Extreme do this with or without the 802.11N hardware models??!

    Yes, as can most any WiFi base station unit. I'd recommend using the Airport Express for this type of use.
