Question about Apple AirPort Extreme Base Station

2 Answers

I can't connect apple airport expresses with a siemens 587 route

We have a network in our house based on a Mac G4 with airport card that connected with an apple airport base station and two airport expressses. The phone company upgraded our  adsl and sent us a Siemens gigaset SE587. This connects with the G4 and any laptops but not the airport expresses. Will be miserable without ITunes in the living room and my shop. Any ideas?

When doing this keep your password to 13 characters as different companies apply different defaults to make up the required 13

Login to your airport express using Apple's airport utilities (either in it's current configuration or after resetting it).

Using the airport utility do not choose manual setup, just select continue.

Adjust (as required) the airport express station name and password and select continue.

Select "I have a wireless network and I want to add AirPort Express or replace an existing device on my network and select continue.

Select I want Airport Express to wireless join my current network and select continue.

Choose if you want to extent the rance of your network or just join the network and select continue.

Choose the network you wish to join... etc etc etc....

You should be fine.

Cut the airport off and back on again. After that, delete any wifi profiles you have, and then re-add them. This will clear any corrupt profiles and troubleshoot that. If you can't connect to anything after that, check that the airport card is connected securely. If, after all that, it still isn't working, and other devices are able to connect to the same network, then your airport card is probably no longer working.

What I would suggest is reseating the airport card as it may be the card has come loose or the cable is not connected properly. The following support page on the apple website will tell you how to do it.

Failing that you will probably have to buy an new airport card or a wireless usb adaptor. You should be able to pick one up from ebay fairly cheaply.

Hope this helps.

Not connecting wirelessly to mac


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

Depending on what type of Internet service you are using, your Intel iMac comes standard with an Airport Extreme wireless card built in. As a result, if you are unable to connect wirelessly to the Internet, you will need to try this:

- Click on the Apple menu icon, located in the upper left corner of your screen and select System Preferences from the drop down menu.

- Now locate Network from within System Preferences.
- In the side window, make sure you see Airport and check also to see that it is turned on. If it is, then check the left side window to see if the AirPort connection is active.

Keep in mind, your modem or connection router of course, has to be able to provide wireless connectivity, otherwise, if you do not, there will be no need to try connecting via your AirPort Extreme card.

If your network has been physically set as a wireless network, then just turning on the AirPort card in System Preferences>Network will start discovering all networks within its range, including your own network.

So whether you are using an Airport Extreme, Express or a 3rd party (non-Apple-branded) router, you should be able to connect wirelessly.

If you are still unable to connect with these basic steps, here are a few articles you will need to review from Apple Support informational database:
Requirements for wireless Internet access with AirPort
Airport & Bluetooth interference (for connectivity issues)

So here are some basic steps and resources you can try.

If you have more questions please feel free to post a comment.

I hope this information helps.

Regards,

Trouble connecting Power Mac G4 Airport saying "invalid password"


WPA is supported by both the Airport Extreme and Mac OS versions 10.3.
It's possible you need to change your encryption specification on the Netgear to "Shared Key" instead of the default "Open."

AirPort Password


Hello,

This article provides instruction on the installation of the AirPort Wireless Networking card into a Power Mac G4 (AGP Graphics) computer. Similar instructions, with graphics, are included with the AirPort card.

1. Shut down the computer (choose Shut Down from the Special menu) and unplug all cables except the power cord.
2. Touch the metal PCI access cover on the back of the computer to discharge static electricity. Avoid walking around until you have finished installing the card. Unplug the power cord then lift the latch on the side of the computer.
3. Gently lower the side panel onto a clean, flat surface. Lower it onto a soft cloth to avoid scratching the case.
4. Connect the antenna cable to the connector on the end of the AirPort card. The cable is usually stowed on the side of the PCI card guide.
5. Remove the metal clip and pull the AirPort card from the adapter card, shown below. The adapter card and clip are not used with your Power Mac G4.

6. Insert the AirPort card (serial number side up) through the opening in the PCI card guide, and into the connector on the main logic board as shown below.

58536_2.gif

7. Raise the side panel and press it against the case until it snaps into place.
Instructions for using the AirPort software are in Mac Help, available in the Help menu.

Wireless Internet access requires an Internet service provider (fees may apply) and AirPort (or AirPort-compatible) wireless Ethernet card and base station. Some ISPs are not compatible with AirPort. For more information, see technical document 106590: "AirPort: Requirements for Wireless Internet Access"

Thank You

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.
