    No, the Extreme cannot be plugged directly into the Express.
    To accomplish what you'd like (an extended network), plug your router into the Extreme and set up your network via your computer (Airport Utility). Then, plug in the Express elsewhere in the home and, when setting it up for the first time, there is an option in Airport Utility to set up your Express solely as a signal booster. There you have it.
