If there's a Windows application to configure the base station, maybe it'll run under Wine. – Stefano Palazzo Aug 20 '11 at 18:11
Haven't tried myself but I can confirm that for some people the setup program for the AEX runs fine with Wine. – Takkat Aug 20 '11 at 21:11

I'm running an Airport Express wireless AP. I can configure it with a Java app, called AirportBaseStationConfigurator, which is part of a Java source package called AirportAdministration, written by J. Sevy. I forget where I got it, but I recall that google was my friend, it could be yours, too.

Yes you can.

Plug the printer into the airport express

Then in ubuntu go into the printer setup control panel, click to add a new printer, and select the network printer option. The printer connected to the express should show up. Now follow all the prompts to install drivers and viola!
