    I am not technically oriented. It is important to note that the asus is able to get onto other networks. The base station does not need resetting as three other computers are able to access it without a problem.

    PLEASE give me a step-by-step tutorial to reconfigure the asus settings to work with the current network.

    Also, when changing the wireless setting on the asus, I did get the computer to ask for the password, but it asks for the hexidecimal password which is not needed by the other macs on the system.

Try changing the channel on the router and add/removing your preferred network assuming you are using the windows wireless utility.

Trying to update firmware on y airport extreme but i forgot my password


You need to perform a soft reset of your router. There directions to do this from the Apple web site are:
  1. Connect the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule to power.
  2. 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.
  3. From the AirPort menu bar item, choose the network created by the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule (the network name does not change).
  4. Open AirPort Utility in Applications > Utilities on a Mac using Mac OS X, and in Start > All Programs > AirPort on a computer using Windows.
  5. Select the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule and click Continue.
  6. A window indicating that the device has been reset will appear.
  7. Select "Restore the previous settings" and select OK.
  8. Move through subsequent windows to make changes to your passwords or other settings as desired, clicking Continue after each one.
  9. When you have moved through all of the selection windows you will be able to select Update. Click Update to install the new settings.
  10. Click Continue to allow your AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule to restart.
  11. Quit AirPort Utility.

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. Good luck.

Airport Extreme Bases Station not detectable with utility


This depends... Reaching them wirelessly may be unreliable for a number of reasons, so, I'll proceed on the assumption that you are attempting to test in the simplest lowest-variable situation:
First, make sure that you have the latest Airport Utility for your Mac.
Connect your Mac to the Airport via a single Category 5 (or 5e or 6) cable. Factory-reset the Airpot and then wake up the Mac. If the utility still can't discover your airport, it's probably time for a trip to your local Genius bar as you most likely have a hardware problem.
Lather, rinse, repeat for each of the two airports.

Unable to connect windows xp client to airport extreme router


If you go into the network properties of the wireless adapter you should see a tab that says "wireless networks". In the list of saved wireless networks you should see the name of your wireless network, if so delete it from the list and click ok. Try to reconnect now, I noticed this happens alot when you enter in the wrong WEP key in windows xp. hope this helps

Apple extreme bridged to apple extreme (Windows network)


Hi,
OK, do you have the latest version of Apple's Airport Utility: Version 5.4.1 (541.9) ?
If you don't, get it... it's got an excellent interface that will walk you through bridging two wireless routers together.
Once you get your hands on it, you will need to choose which airport will be the primary and which will be the secondary. Ideally, pick the one connected to the highest speed and most reliable internet access.
Connect to the secondary airport and configure it as bridge to the primary, the Airport Utility will walk you through it step by step.

Can't connect to the internet with my Airport Express


Make sure your network settings are set to DHCP manually and that you are getting an IP address that does NOT start with 169.258

If you are using a Windows PC you may have to use the ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew to refresh your DHCP settings.

Also try using the Airport utility (located in the Utilities folder) if you have a Mac. It will tell you if there is an issue.

Vista compatibility


Vista has very little drivers for equipment sad but true. However in your case you can use Airport Extream. However here is what an apple tech had to say: If you are a Vista user and you don't have access to a Mac, you will not be able to get this working. Apple hasn't yet stirred itself to release a version of Airport Express Assistant that works with Windows Vista - you can't set it up via Windows' own networking software and nor does the Airport Admin Utility work under Vista. It installs and you can run it, but it returns error messages if you try and connect to the Airport Express. I had to use a Mac to get it working, though once it's set up as a client to your existing wireless network, you can stream from iTunes on a Vista PC to the Airport Express. The documentation is very poor, too, with this: I had to do extensive Googling first to track down the fact that I couldn't set it up with Vista and second to identify the device's IP address and default password. Having said that, it is a breeze to set up via a Mac and works like a dream witih Vista once it's up and running. But don't bother if you have Vista until Apple updates the software. Was this review helpful to you?
