Does anyone know how to get my Old Airport Express to work with my Airport Base Station? It worked in the past but now when I plug it in it only flashes the Amber color, it wont turn Green like it is supposed to.  At one point it said i needed to download a drive and click on a link, but then when i did it said page not found...


I'm very confused and Frustrated!!!


Thanks in Advance for any help!

    Unfortunately, Mountain Lion does not officially support your older version of the AirPort Express.


    Some users have had success by using a special utility to create an "unofficial" installation of the product on Mountain Lion.


    See this article for more details:



    It works fine for me, but I cannot say whether it will work for you.

    Make it easy on yourself and just use iCloud, turn on photo stream and sync for me at least
