Can an Airport Express Extend a PC/Windows Network?

I would like to move my Airport Express from my home, all-Mac network to a college auditorium that gets poor WIFI reception. It would be only for a meeting in June that lasts several days. Is it possible?

    I don’t know, honestly. Probably not as the “extend” function is part of the Airport Utility settings, which wouldn’t be compatible with whatever utility the other router uses.
    However, if you could plug into the router or any point of the network you would be able to create your own wifi network from the Express. This wouldn’t be “extending” the network in the sense I think you mean, but it would get the job done. I would work the same way as when you plug an Express into a hotel ethernet port.

    Thank you. You’ve given me enough info to continue exploring it.
