I am not able to join a wifi network in client mode from my airport express. This used to work when my main router was another airport, but not now when I use a d-link.

 

What is wrong?

    The D-Link router is using different settings than the former AirPort, so the Express cannot join the wireless network.

     

    The Express will join the network providing that three conditions are met:

     

    1) Express must have the same wireless network name as the D-Link network

     

    2) Express must use the same wireless security settings as the D-Link network

     

    3) Express must use the same wireless network password as the D-Link network

    Hi, all the terms above are met.

     

    1.     Express is acessing the correct network.

    2.     The security setting is the same (WPA + WPA2)

    3.     And I have entered the correct password on the express.

    The security setting is the same (WPA + WPA2)

    There are a number of possible variations with WPA + WPA2.......TKIP, AES, etc. Please list all of the possible settings.

     

    When the settings match up exactly on both the D-Link and Express, the Express will join the network.
