(Mods, please move this if this location is inappropriate.)
I've got a very first generation AirPort Express Base Station that I can no longer use and will be happy to give, postage paid, to somebody who can.
This Base Station is an A1084 which is limited to "b/g" performance (NO "n") and the 2.4GHz frequency (NO 5GHz), and, further, it is NOT naturally compatible with OS X versions later than Snowy. (There's a hack out there that others have reported using successfully but I was unable to get to work.)
I don't recommend it for OS X Lion and later, but if you're running Snowy or earlier you may be able to make use of it, most likely as a range extender in the 2.4GHz frequency.
If you're interested, just let me know, and I'll post an email address so you can send me your mailing address. (No internationals, please; I don't care to deal with customs.)
