SOURCE: My AirPort Extreme is not

If you know how to set it ..(there is a manual available on the net and its simple to follow) ...I suggest to reset it and connect again by cable and set it up again ..and where in the wireless settings try to change the channels ...and pay attention on any setting that may make it invisible for other devices...
like I said ..frequencies...channels... access by mac address and so on .... I herd about mobile devices and wifi ..that had this problem cause were not compatible with the encoding used(for ex wep or wpa) for password ..so try to make it password free after the reset ..
so ..whatever it is if you reset it and make the settings again will be from factory level ..and will be eliminate ...cause there is no damage on the device if the Mac is connecting well

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.

We just bought an Apple Airport Extreme router. After installing the Airport Utility software, and hooking up the router, we can not configure the base station using the Airport Utility. No matter what...


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)

Cant connect to internet with Airport Extreme 802.11n


An airport extreme is just a dunb Wireless Access Point. It could be that it has been mated to the Linksys router and is looking at a different set if IP addresses that are not coming from the etherent connection out of the wall.

If you know how to obtain network addresses on your computer, find out what you get from the wall jack and from the airport through the Linksys. You can try to reset and reconfigure the Airport, but if you are not familiar with the hardware, get someone who is to help you. The manual offers several tips and procedures to do this http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/AirPortExtremeBaseStationSetupGuide.pdf

New wireless network - now my airport express and airtunes does not work


Hi I was searching this site for a solution to a problem I am having and came across your post. I had the same issue and what I did was reset my airport express to factory settings (detailed in manual) - this enabled the Airport extreme to find/pair with it.
