My airport extreme is working perfect;y. I had to reset the password and now my airport express booster h=just blinks amber. I downloaded the disc to the hard disc but it express doesn't show up in utilities on hard disc. Only the airport extreme shows up.I have tried resetting the express by holding own the reset button but it contiues to only blink amber.

Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Perform a Factory Default Reset on the AirPort Express as follows:


    Power off the AirPort Express

    Leave it off for 5 minutes or longer

    Hold in the reset button first...and keep holding the reset button in for an additional 9-10 seconds while you simultaneously plug the Express back in to power

    Release the reset button 9-10 seconds after you have plugged the power back in and allow a full minute for the Express to restart to a slow, blinking amber light


    Temporarily, connect a spare Ethernet cable from your Mac to the Express


    Open Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility and reconfigure the Express to join the AirPort Extreme network using the new password that you established.


    Once the Express has been reconfigured, you can disconnect the Ethernet cable.
