Just brought a Sony Bravia HX 800 and added a
I got the Bravia KDL-40EX713 and the uwa-br100 I had massive problems getting it to work with a BT home hub. Eventually I found manual setting that work. Firstly I logged on to the router and went the the advanced settings bit, then I went to the DHCP table that shows all the devices connected. I picked an unused Ip address from the range of existing ones being used (this sort of thing 192.168.1.73)
I then used the following settings for the other fields (I don't think the secondary dns setting is right but it still works)
sn mask 255.255.255.0
default gateway 192.168.1.254
primary dns 192.168.1.254
secondary dns 192.168.22.23
If the DNS server ip is wrong then you get local access OK but internet access failed.
Hope this helps.

We just bought an Apple
First time you should connect an Ethernet cable to the AirPort, and set it up with the software it came with. Then take a note of the wireless network's name (SSID) and the password (you might want to chance them to your personal preference though), security youre using (WEP, WPA, or WPA2)

Trying to update firmware on
You need to perform a soft reset of your router. There directions to do this from the Apple web site are:
- Connect the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule to power.
- Press and hold the reset button with a pen or pencil for 1 full second, then release it. The light (LED) will begin flashing amber, indicating that the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule is in soft reset mode.
- From the AirPort menu bar item, choose the network created by the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule (the network name does not change).
- Open AirPort Utility in Applications > Utilities on a Mac using Mac OS X, and in Start > All Programs > AirPort on a computer using Windows.
- Select the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule and click Continue.
- A window indicating that the device has been reset will appear.
- Select "Restore the previous settings" and select OK.
- Move through subsequent windows to make changes to your passwords or other settings as desired, clicking Continue after each one.
- When you have moved through all of the selection windows you will be able to select Update. Click Update to install the new settings.
- Click Continue to allow your AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule to restart.
- Quit AirPort Utility.
These directions are from the Apple Support Web Site:

I need my WPA key
If you can access the router, then navigate to the wireless security settings and it should be displayed there. If your router is like any other, you can access it by starting your internet browser and typing 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. Once prompted for username and password just enter ADMIN in the password and leave the username blank. This assumes you haven't accessed your router and changed the password to access the settings.

Can not connect a kodak
Welcome to Fixya
Your printer should be able to search the airport router then all you must do is to connect to the router once its detected. If the router has a password then you need to enter it to the printer. You must enter using an alphanumeric grid of letters and numbers that appears on the unit's LCD. You use the arrow key buttons to navigate to the right character position and push the enter key to select it. Install a software on your computer, then the printer would print wirelessly without any additional hardware needed at all.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Someone helped me hook up
If your network is being created by an Apple AirPort base station, use AirPort Utility to put the base station into "manual setup" mode, then pull down the "Base Station" menu and select "Equivalent Network Password". Try the value shown there.

I have two 802.11n airport
A persistent, flashing amber light indicates that any of several
potential conditions may require your attention:
- The base station has not yet been configured because it is new,
or the reset switch has been set.
- You have selected a security configuration that is not
- Disconnected ethernet
cable or invalid IP address has been detected.
I suspect that after being disconnected for so long that it has simply lost it's configuration.
This is how you fix it...
- AirPort Utility 5.2 or later opens automatically if there is an issue.
For earlier versions, open AirPort Utility, located in Mac OS X in the
Applications folder, within the Utilities folder; in Microsoft Windows,
look in Start > All Programs > AirPort.
- In the AirPort Utility window, double click the base station icon that
has an amber/orange/yellow circle next to it.
- When the Summary window appears, double-click the amber circle icon
that's to the right of "Base Station Status".
- The status window lists any conditions that require your attention.
Respond to each item as shown below until there are no more items
listed. Important: You must reset the base station using the
reset switch to re-enable checking for the conditions you ignored.
- If you have a security issue you are aware of but don't care and just don't want the amber light, putting a checkmark in the "Ignore" checkbox beside each issue tells the AirPort
that you are aware of the issue and choose to ignore it. For example,
you may wish to leave your AirPort open without a password so that
anybody can join your wireless network.

Attempting to connect new Acer netbook to existing Mac network
Had the same problem. What i did was in the Airport Configuration program goto "Airport" then to "Wireless" and then to "Wirelesee options" In this menu deselect "Use wide channels". Also i decreased the power of the 5.0 Ghz transmission, because i don't use it yet. But i think the "Wide channels" is the reason of the problem. It is a bit weird thoug, on my Airports Guest acount with no password and incryption, the Acer One loged on perfectly, but on my private network with WPA2 it did not. Aparantly the Guest network does not use "Wide Channels"
Hope this helps, but take care, maybe the menu's are called differendly because i had to translate them from Dutch.

Apple computers will not connect wirelessly to sky
Please open Finder, then go to Applications, and Utilies, then to Airport Utility (Only if you're using airport basestation), and before doing that, make sure Airport is turned on / enabled. If none of this works, this means either your laptop's airport unit / antenna is faulty, or the source of the internet connection. Also, one thing to try is under system preferences, find networks, and if none are there, or airport isn't there, add a new airport and that should help if all fails, if not good luck.
