Which base station? - Mac Networking

Is there any reason not to use Airport Express as a base station? It costs $80 less than the Airport Extreme base station without telephone and antenna ports. The only downside that I can see offhand is that it has only one ethernet port, but if everything on the LAN side is connected via WiFi, that shouldn't be a problem.

    And the airport, at least optionally, comes with a modem. Not an issue

    I've come to the same conclusion. I do wonder how you're supposed to
    reconfigure it when everything goes to hell, though...

    At an addition price; that makes it cost twice as much as the Airport
    Express base station.

    Airport 4.0 software, but that requires Panther or later. Using the
    base station requires Jaguar 10.2.7 or later.
