Default network security key for apple airport


The Network Security Key is possibly the same pw as the network you are attaching to. This device can be configured in so many different ways.
If you can't figure it out then use the reset button on the back or use paper clip in reset hole.

To set up and configure your AirPort Extreme to use AirPort for wireless networking and Internet access, use the setup assistant in AirPort Utility.
The manual may be of some help... Available here

Good Luck

How do i get green light in apple modem


Hi,
Since we have no idea what modem you have, it's hard to say, but generally, a hard reset on a cable modem does NOT require it be re-provisioned, Comcast will simply repush the bootfile to it the next time it connects.
I'm not sure what you mean about the Airport Utility not detecting the Airport Extreme but it is showing up in the utility. If it's listed, it must have been detected...
The light flashing amber in the front means several different things depending on exact pattern, see the Apple site for exact details. Most common, no Internet connection because the AEX can't get a DHCP lease on its WAN connection. Have you properly reset your cable modem? You don't say what it is, so it's hard to be precise here. If a regular cable modem simply remove the power cable for a few seconds and let it reboot. If an EMTA with phone jacks press and hold the Reset button until the modem reboots.
The other common cause is the AEX has detected it needs a firmware upgrade. In this situtation, the router will work, but you should update the firmware using the Airport Utility.

The router is blinking a yellow light


Here are some of the more common reasons that the status light may blink amber:
  • The Wi-Fi base station has not yet been configured because it is new.
  • The Wi-Fi base station has been reset.
  • A new firmware update is available for the Wi-Fi base station.
  • No IP address is available for the Wi-Fi base station.
  • A Wi-Fi base station in Extended Mode is out-of-network Wi-Fi range of a primary Wi-Fi base station.
  • The WAN Ethernet cable is unplugged from the Wi-Fi base station.
  • The Wi-Fi base station lacks a path to the Internet (or local router).
  • Internet access may be temporarily unavailable from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
  • Your AirPort Time Capsule has detected that the internal hard drive has reported a SMART error, and is failing (This requires firmware 7.5.2, and AirPort Utility 5.5.2).

Cannot get a PC to connect to my Airport Extreme BS


I had trouble connecting my PC to an airport network that my mac was working just fine on. I found this forum to get an "equivalent network password" and it worked great. The pictures were helpful too. Go to the Airport Utility and Then the "Base Station" header on your mac. Then select "Equivalent Network Password". It will be super long and lots of letters and numbers. Worked for me! Here is the forum: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1790

Good luck, hope this helps!
