i just bought the imac computer with the airport extreme and connot get the computer to find the airport ( green light is on on the airport but just won't link up) and i can't even get to a setup page what is going on

    By default, the AirPort Express will broadcastl an unsecured Wi-Fi network with a network name of something like: Apple Network NNNNNN.


    Can the iMac "see" this network? Can it see other Wi-Fi networks in the area? Regardless, try temporarily connecting the iMac directly to the Express via Ethernet. Can the AirPort Utility on the iMac find the Express now?

    thanks for all the help.
