I'm trying to replace a netgear wireless router with the airPort extreme 5th generation. The airPort Extreme is connected by an ethernet cable from a Motorola Surfboard SB51120. When I connect the power cable to the airPort Extreme, the light goes from green, to solid amber and then to blinking amber. I tried the manual setup via the airPort Utility, but I just get an error -4 message. How do I get past the 1st step of the setup?


What's interesting is that my laptop sees the base station and is able to make a wireless connection to the internet. But I believe this is unsecured at this point.

Airport Extreme, Windows 7
