prior to today, i had an Airport Extreme (n) and bridged to it was an older Airport Snow (b,g). this was so i could provide dual band capability within my house. i also had an older Airport Express (b,g?) that i used to stream iTunes to my tuner setup. i could "see" all of these in the Airport Utility. I could "see" the express because i had the snow providing that band.

in an effort to simplify things, i got a dual band Time Capsule (successfully installed at two of my daughter's houses) to get the Snow out of the loop and replace/reuse an external disk i was using for Time Machine (and give me more backup space).

The Time Capsule is up and running, network humming, and Time Machine making it's initial backup.

What i don't see is the Airport Express (which is dutifully blinking amber because it no longer has a network connection).

Where my assumptions wrong?

Do i need to reset the Express in order to make it visible?

Help!


(my AppleTV, the original version, is connected up just fine [n]).

    Forrest, welcome to the discussion area!

    Your AirPort Express is "seeing" a different wireless router and won't be able to connect to it until you "hard reset" the Express and reconfigure it again.

    Hold in the reset button on the Express until you see the amber light begin to blink more quickly, then release.

    The AirPort Express should now "appear" in AirPort Utility so that you can reconfigure it, but you will likely have to switch networks temporarily to allow AirPort Utility to communicate the with Express. Once you have the Express setup again, it will join your normal wireless network.
