I've had an AirPort Express connected to my Mac for years and it worked fine.  I changed the name of the speakers that the AirPort connects too and now I can't reconnect to the AirPort Network.  The Apple Network shows up in the Menu Bar pulldown with the default name and it shows a few bars of signal strength, but when I choose it there is no connection to the Mac.  AirPort Utility can't find it when it does it's scan.  In System Preferences I choose AirPort and I see the Apple Network in the pulldown menu too, but it won't connect.   How can I get the Mac to recognize and connect to the Network again?  I rebooted the Express but no change.
