Can you use airport express - to extend wifi connection, with a BT Business Hub and macs & iphones

We have a very old thick walled building and the router struggles and only gets to a third of t he rooms.

    Assuming your BT device is also a WiFi base station, in theory you could extend the reach with another base station. You'll want to do some research to see if the BT device and the Airport Express (or Extreme) can work together in this way (ie extend network, rather than the Airport be just another wireless device).

    You may wish to consider running some ethernet cables from the BT device to some key rooms, and adding Airport base stations in each location for local WiFi.
