Question about Apple AirPort Express (M9470Z/A) 802.11g/b (M9470ZA) Wireless Access Point

1 Answer

Can't connect to the internet with my Airport Express

I'm using a cable modem.The communication between the device and my computer is working fine. I can even use it as a link between my computer and sound system. Even though the light is green (which is supposed to mean that the internet conncetion is working fine), I can't get on the internet. When I plug the cable directly to my computer, the connection is fine. My airport connexion is set to DHCP (automatic) just like my ethernet connection used to be. HAs anyone ever experienced a similar problem?

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.

Not able to connect to internet via airport express


Have you checked your system preferences, network settings? You have to tell the mac to use airport or ethernet. It may be setup to use the hard wire and not airport. You should see a link to turn on airport in the upper right corner of your screen. I think you can turn airport on there.

Using the Airport utility on your macbook (located in your Utilities folder) will tell you what the conflict is.....most likely you have DHCP issue or the network is at the incorrect setting.
The wizard in the utility will tell you what you should fix.

Hello,

I found this information on another site, but it may help.

Go into your airport utility and up at the top hit internet. Go to the DHCP and look at the DHCP lease. Mine was set up for one hour. I just set it up for 365 Days. So that means, in theory, I should stay connected and I would have to hit that Renew DHCP lease once a year. :-)
It has worked fine ever since.

Your modem is what connects you to the internet, your Mac airport is a router...One of the quirks about Apple's AirPort Base Stations is that they are routers, but not modems. As a quick refresher: a router enables you to create a network that connects various devices together (Macs, iPhones, iPads, hard drives, printers and so on); whereas a modem connects your network to the wider internet.
