Vertically mounting the new Airport Express

Apple recently released a new update to their Apple Express product.

I have been very pleased with my Airport Extreme. However, now that I finally got a iPad and have been using it various spots around the house, I have been noticing a definite drop off on the wireless reception on the back half of my house.

This is easily solved with  “extending” my current “ wireless network.

Now I like all the improvements on the new airport express, primarily the ability to extend the network on both the 2.4 Ghz & 5Ghz  bands, but I’m one of those people who really liked how nicely the old one just hung off a outlet on the wall.

Looking at the plug for the power cord and I realized it look very familiar and fit perfectly with the my left over power plug from my macbook pro.

Now I can happily let sit on the wall.

Now I will admit that this is probably not the most optimum placement for the antenna. But for how I’m using it, it is perfect!
