Its Because If There Is other computers or another interference it blocks and enables and disables the conduct given off for your wireless router I sugest try repositioning a little sometimes also if you are to close to the access point it will also have slight delays and issues! or you may try deleteing and reinstalling the instalation cd I hope this helps!

Basically Time capsule is same as Airport extreme base station added with a hard drive to take wireless backup.Put same Network Name and password in both Time capsule and airport base station.Suppose your are making TC as a primary base station and Airport extreme as a secondary base station. Select WDS in both the base stations .In "Wireless Mode" select"Participate in WDS network" in both the base stations.Dont change rest of the options.Put TC Mac id to Extreme base station and extreme Mac ID to TC.now open the airport option in your laptop and check.you can see a single network name.Its DONE.Njoy using wireless
Had the same problem. What i did was in the Airport Configuration program goto "Airport" then to "Wireless" and then to "Wirelesee options" In this menu deselect "Use wide channels". Also i decreased the power of the 5.0 Ghz transmission, because i don't use it yet. But i think the "Wide channels" is the reason of the problem. It is a bit weird thoug, on my Airports Guest acount with no password and incryption, the Acer One loged on perfectly, but on my private network with WPA2 it did not. Aparantly the Guest network does not use "Wide Channels"
Hope this helps, but take care, maybe the menu's are called differendly because i had to translate them from Dutch.
I had trouble connecting my PC to an airport network that my mac was working just fine on. I found this forum to get an "equivalent network password" and it worked great. The pictures were helpful too. Go to the Airport Utility and Then the "Base Station" header on your mac. Then select "Equivalent Network Password". It will be super long and lots of letters and numbers. Worked for me! Here is the forum: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1790
I would assume that your neighbor is running a b or g network without password.
To eliminate the signal issue, do the trouble shooting have the phone at least 6-7 feet away from the Airport. Try to have the phone connected without the network password first to check if it detects it. You can either reposition the airport or change the channels to resolve this.
Check with the airport if it is running on N or 802.11n, have it set to b or g or if it is running on all of them, then it should be fine since the phone does not support wireless N. If the issue is with the security, try first to connect without any network password. Once you have the phone connected, try out the different encryption one at a time. The phone supports WEP, WPA and WPA 2. Encryption may be tricky as this stage as different manufacturers may prefer specific encryptions.
OK, do you have the latest version of Apple's Airport Utility: Version 5.4.1 (541.9) ?
If you don't, get it... it's got an excellent interface that will walk you through bridging two wireless routers together.
Once you get your hands on it, you will need to choose which airport will be the primary and which will be the secondary. Ideally, pick the one connected to the highest speed and most reliable internet access.
Connect to the secondary airport and configure it as bridge to the primary, the Airport Utility will walk you through it step by step.
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.
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.
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.
