I have the new Airport Extreme set up with two Powerbooks. The AE replaced a Belkin 802.11g router which had become faulty. The AE was set up on one of the PBs and the other connected easily using the wifi drop-down menu.

I then tried to connect my Mac Mini but the network is not being found. I've scanned and rescanned but it cannot be detected. Any ideas?

Help, suggestions appreciated!

powerbook 17, powerbook 12, mac mini, Mac OS X (10.4.8)

    Install all Airport Updates and the Enabler.

    Hi William, thanks for replying. According to the Enabler details it only works with Core Duo 2 intel processors. Mine is Core Duo. I've installed all the airport updates but still no joy. I have the computer connected by ethernet, and the new Airport utility is detecting the router and even telling me that the name of the wireless network. OS X just won't detect the network and therefore won't let me connect.

    Ok, did you try not using any network security? I had a really weird incident where my Core Duo MBP would not see the network as well. Disabling security worked for some. If that works your router is may need of a firmware update.

    I did see that the latest 2007-001 AirPort Update ruined my ability to see my AirPort Network, the 802.11n one. This because the firmware on my router needed a firmware update. Seems the Apple Update caused some 2wire modems to not function with Macs.

    What a bummer.
