First question, how does one access the actual discussions on this new forum? I keep being brought here to ask a new question - but have yet to have a chance to browse existing questions???


So, forgive me if this is a duplicate post…


I have an Airport Express. I have reset it to give it new settings. I have opened Airport Utility, which does not show it - even connnected via ethernet. I connected to it via WiFi and then it does show. I get a message saying that this version of Airport Utility doesn't support this base station… and to use 5.6. There is a link in this message, which unhelpfully just goes to the US support home page.


I found Airport Utility 5.6 eventually and downloaded it. On attempting to install it, it said the software was not compatible on my machine. It was definitely the Mac version and not the PC one! :-P


This is the first time I've ever really had an Airport issue - or certainly just accessing it from the utility, so I'm flummoxed!

Mac OS X (10.7.4)
