After I installed an Airport Extreme as a base station for my network, the G4 couldn't recognize either the Airport Express or the Airport Extreme unless it was connected by ethernet cable to the Airport Extreme - then both devices show up in the G4 utility. I have reset the Airport Express to factory settings many times and the Utility in my iMac 3.2 Ghz Intel Core 13 indicates that the Airport Express is working. Any ideas?

G4 Imac, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

    I suspect its to do with the WPA setup support changes.  My very old G3 seemed to have the same issue of not able to connect to Extreme or Express.  Used to connect before years back to Apple routers but refused to in recent time for reasons not explainable so I just connect it now via cable.

    Thanks JoeMY - I've come to the same conclusion after fiddling many hours to no avail. Fortunately, I don't need to use the G4, but thought it would be nice to have it with internet if possible.
