From my reading at the Apple support web site, it appears that you may need to download the latest version of the Airport Utility in order to get around this issue.
Additionally, Apple has just recently come up with an update to the firmware for this device.
Try downloading the latest version of the Airport Utility (Mac or Windows) and see if that doesn't resolve the issue.
After installing the latest version of the Airport Utility, try to connect to the Airport Express. If that is successful with the new version, click the "Manual Setup" button to display the "Summary" page for the Airport Express.
Next to the entry for "Version:" there should be a button to press to upgrade the firmware to the latest version (7.5.2). Perform the upgrade by following the on screen directions.
After the upgrade, again attempt to connect to the Airport Express using the Airport Utility. This should work as expected.
Before attempting to use the AirTunes (recently renamed "AirPlay"), make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes installed.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya community.

Please try download and Install MacTube Player to play Youtube video or music... Let me know the result please...

Also to play the music in stereo receiver please follow below steps.

  1. Plug in the Apple AirPort Express into a power outlet near the stereo. Connect an audio cable from the audio port on the AirPort Express to the audio in port on your stereo. If your stereo has a different sized audio port than the 3.5 mm one on the AirPort Express, you will need to use an adapter to connect it.
  2. Plug in an ethernet cable from the AirPort Express to your computer or wireless router for a wired connection. For a wireless connection, connect the AirPort Express to your existing home network, or use a computer with a wireless network adapter to connect directly to the AirPort Express.
  3. Connect to the AirPort Express with your computer as directed in the manual to run the setup with the AirPort utility. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  4. Open iTunes and play the music to your stereo. There should be a pop up in the lower right corner after you run the Airport utility.
Let me know how far you could able to reach in a result. Our expert friends are here anytime to solve your issue.

Thanks once again for joining us.

Have a good day.

Airport express streams audio for a short period then quits


Make sure that your setup for the Express is set to "join the network" and not extend.
Also remember that with wireless technology there can be interference from microwaves, phones, etc.
If you are running programs that use a lot of bandwidth, this will cause the drop outs as well.

If you have a newer Express, another cure can be to use the 5GHz band for the broadcast channel.

Make sure that between the laptop and airport express you don't have devices that can interfere, like microwaves, phones, etc.

Also, if its a newer express try using the 5GHz band and that the airport is set up to "Join the network" not "Extend".

Apple® - AirPort Express Wireless-N Base Station


No. The airport express just has a shorter range. You can use both a regular base and express to extend the range further. Also, the express can be used at your home stereo. You can play your Itunes library directly to your stereo with an adapter to the express. Anyway, the express is just a less powerful wireless, with some special features. We print through it and use it exclusively. May add base station later. Good luck.

Xbox 360 wireless adapter not finding network


Hello Sir,

Reset your AX by holding a pin or pen tip and count to 20.
Plug Airport Express
Wait a few minutes

1. Open Airport Utility
2. Manual Setup
3. Airport Icon -> Wireless Mode -> Join a wireless network
4. Network Name -> Enter the SSID of your Linksys router
5. Choose the same wireless security that you are using on your Linksys Router
6. Wireless Password -> Enter the wireless key that is on your Linksys router.

In the Music Icon, you should be able to find "Enable iTunes"

AX will continue to blink for a bit, perhaps a minute, while it searches and connects to the Linksys Router.

Should turn green.

Good luck.

Networking a Printer on a wireless network


Deanna, if the mfc is not that old, take it back to the dealer and ask for changing it to a wireless printer (extension: CW). Do you really need the fax function? If not, try this printer: DCP 750CW. If yes, get the MFC 845 CW. The CN printer have to be connected directly to router or pc/laptop.

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?
