When setting up my airport express I select the "join existing network" as I just want to add it as a client to stream music to my hifi. I want to be an,e to operate it without connection by a Ethernet cable.


I try setting it up from my iPad 3 airport utility, but it returns an unexpected error message.


What settings should I check on the router, what needs  to be I place for this to. Work. ?

    AirPort Utility on the iPad assumes that your wireless router is using WPA2 Personal or WPA/WPA2 Personal settings for wireless security.


    Is that the case?

    Hi Bob,


    Yes, I have the WPA/WPA2 settings confirmed.  I gave up on using the iPad to configure it and connected the AE to my laptop via eternet and was able to configure it to connect wirelessly to my network.


    Thanks.  CLOSED !
