Currently Being ModeratedOct 12, 2009 1:49 PM (in response to Gozzie)Reset the AirPort Express (AX) and then configure it to join your current wireless network.iMac Alu C2D 2.4 GHz 24" 4GB and 20" 2GB, Mac OS X (10.6.1), iBook G4 14" 1.42 [1.5GB],iBook 466 SE Graphite [576M-40GB],iMac G4 700/768MB
Currently Being ModeratedOct 12, 2009 2:40 PM (in response to Duane)Nope, not worked....
this getting more and more annoying...
I've re-configurated the AX, after that, Airport Utility didn't even recognise the base station....
Very disappointing issue, not the first time my Mac is not able to join the wireless network once an update on the OS has been made...
Can everyone give us a detailed explanation, what to choose when configurating the AX manually?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 12, 2009 2:43 PM (in response to Pat4153)After doing a hard reset on the AX, try temporarily connecting your computer via Ethernet to the AX. After configuring the AX, you can disconnect the Ethernet cable.iMac Alu C2D 2.4 GHz 24" 4GB and 20" 2GB, Mac OS X (10.6.1), iBook G4 14" 1.42 [1.5GB],iBook 466 SE Graphite [576M-40GB],iMac G4 700/768MB
Currently Being ModeratedOct 13, 2009 5:50 PM (in response to Gozzie)I have a similar issue. I can configure and update the profile of the AX when connected directly via Ethernet. When the airport utility then tries to restart the AX, it cannot find it.imac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 13, 2009 7:04 PM (in response to ggallant1)The issue is with the security on my router. I turned off the WEP encryption on my FIOS router and the AX works fine. However, i dont want to leave my network open. How can I turn WEP on and have the AX continue to be allowed onto the network?imac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 14, 2009 11:48 AM (in response to Duane)Thanks for your help. The solution was to re-set the AX as you suggested & then re-configure using AP utility. I did use the manual configuration option on AP utility rather than automatic.iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 14, 2009 11:51 AM (in response to Gozzie)Have you tried re-setting the AX and using AP utility to join your network manually? If you do this you can enter any WEP information then.MacBook Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 15, 2009 8:40 AM (in response to Gozzie)The solution that worked for me was to switch from WEP to WPA.
1. Log in to FIOS router (192.168.1.1)
2. In wireless settings, turn WEP off. Under advanced security settings, turn WPA on and type in a key of your choosing.
3. The router will apply the new settings, you may have to power cycle the router.
4. Connect your mac to the network with the new WPA key.
5. Using airport utility, reconfigure the AX to use WPA security and type in the WPA key. Power cycle the AX and it should be all set.imac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
