Sorry, that's one reason I suggested to Apple that they make 2 separate sections for "Airport Express" just like they have with the Airport Extreme.
1. Old Express with "g"
2. New Express with "n"
I also just noticed you are not running Leopard so you are also running the older Airport software.
If you do have a newer Express, then you need to install the newer software.
Airport Utility version 5.3.1
But none of my stuff is "new". I've had the Airport Express Base Station for about 2 or 3 years, the iMac for about 2.5 years....
My Airport Admin Utility is version 4.2.3.
And I'm fully updated (according to Software Update).
So....... what to do? (other than upgrade to 10.5, which I can't/won't do). Do you think that software version would work in 10.4?
There are only 3 ways that I know of to legally obtain a new version of Airport Software.
1. Buy Leopard
2. Buy a new Airport Express which comes with the software
3. Buy a new computer which comes with Leopard
Either way, $100 a pop for Leopard or the Express unit and I'm sure it isn't worth it to you at this time just for the Airport Software let alone buying a new computer.
hey hey, you forgot option #4
a FREE AND LEGAL download of Airport Utility DIRECT from Apple. I just found it.
It's called AirPort Utility 5.3.1 for Tiger
Thank you for your help. I just installed and it works well.
(And buy the way, not upgrading to Leopard has absolutely nothing to do with money. It's because I professionally use programs such as Final Cut Pro and Avid that are not stable (or even working) yet in Leopard. Heck, a bunch of programs don't even suggest taking your Quicktime beyond 7.3.1 . And since my computer had a meltdown with Quicktime 7.4 last year, as did many other people on these forums, I like to stay one full version behind on all software. I leave the "beta testing" to others. Okay, end of my non-sequitor).
