    By default, the AirPort Express will broadcastl an unsecured Wi-Fi network with a network name of something like: Apple Network NNNNNN.


    Can the iMac "see" this network? Can it see other Wi-Fi networks in the area? Regardless, try temporarily connecting the iMac directly to the Express via Ethernet. Can the AirPort Utility on the iMac find the Express now?
