My Apple Airport Express is not working? I have configured it to Join my wireless network (U-Verse) just so that I can connect it to some speakers and use airplay, but after i configure the airport express, all it does it have a flashing amber light? I know this worked because I had it working at my old house for a very long time, but now when i wanted to move it and connect it to my new network at my new apartment, it will not connect and my iphone and itunes wont pick it up? What can be done?

    Dear rgaynor23,

     

    This will seem like a very silly question, but have you tried entering the AirPort Utility (found in Appllications>Utilities) to see if you can reach and reset the AirPort?

     

    If this is what you mean by:

    but after i configure the airport express, 

     

    In which case, have you tried to reset the AirPort itself? There's a little detent on the side of the AirPort where you can push to reset.

     

    I know this has worked for me in the past.

     

    Cheers,

     

    S.

    In addition to stockzo's queries what was the router you used in your old house?

    Does AirPort Utility show an error message?

    When you hardware-reset the Airport Express, I seem to remember that the default settings are loaded, and I think the settings are to create a network and not to join your Internet. If this is the case after resetting you must Airport Utility to it and configure it again.

    There aren't any defaults, it needs to be set up after a reset.
