Several steps to try.
1) Make sure your iMac Airport card is powered on. You can do that with the Airport icon in your menu bar (looks like a pie wedge), or go to System Preferences / Networking / Airport and make sure Airport is on (also, enable "Show Airport Status in Menu Bar" to get the handy icon).
2) Temporarily move your iMac as close as possible to the Airport Express. Pull down the Airport icon and see if the name of your network shows up. If it doesn't, you have a bad Airport card in your iMac. Otherwise...
3) Move your iMac back to where it was. See if the Airport icon still shows your network's name. If not, you may have a bad Airport antenna in your iMac, or you may simply have too many intervening walls or be at too far a distance.

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.

Canon MX310 - I'm trying to connect this printer to my network. Currently, I have the printer connected to an Airport Express but when I try to print from my iMac, I get a message that the printer is...


Adkinsdave, keep in mind that often having someone remotely connect to your computer with you and perform this task is easier than trying to walk you through steps and potentially missing a step. With that being said, the Airport Express was meant to make setting up a WiFi network in your own home a breeze.
We need to first determine if your Canon PIXMA MX310 has a Mac driver. According to the Downloads page at Canon.com, there are several Mac drivers available for OS X, 10.5 and 10.6: usa.canon.com - simply choose your OS on the pulldown from that website. Once your computer has the driver it needs to communicate with the printer, you can use your Airport Express to connect to the printer.
Obviously, make sure the printer is turned on and once you go through the Airport Express connect guide you should be printing in no time.
Let us know if there are still issues.

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.

Airport Express, Bonjour Printing Does Work With Leopard


In the setup of the Airport network settings, you have to make sure that AppleTalk is actually turned on (or the box is checked). When using Mac's with Leopard and you use both the ethernet port and airport off and on, the OS tends to deactivate AppleTalk. Its not a set thing, just random.

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.
