I've been trying to connect to my Airport Express recently (it's a wireless router from Apple in case anyone didn't know) on my dv9000, but it just stays at the connecting screen for a long time, refreshes list, and doesn't connect! (And it wasn't like this when I first bought the thing, it only occurred one morning and I forgot what i did the night before that morning >.I've also had some problems like when I was at Barns & Nobles, it didn't detect the wireless signal :( Besides those two, i haven't tried connecting to any other wireless internet...

Re: Wireless doesn't work!?
Sure...since the Airport Express runs on DHCP, and your HP may or may not integrate with that standard, you most likely need to adjust your Network Settings for that connection, so your HP is compatible with the AE DHCP settings. Hmmm..let's see..who will be most helpful? www.apple.com no doubt..

Apple uses airport for its wireless connection, how ever the device where you want to connect to should have the wireless feature embeded to it or you should have a wireless router to distribute the wireless signal, if you are using just a modem which doesn't have capability of distributing wireless signals, the Apple airport will surely not work for it requires a modem to connect to. you need to get a router and connect it in your modem so the Apple will work for wireless as well.
I am suppose to add the solution here but unfortunately i am here to explain the problem. I got the new Airport Express. I have HP Pavillion and running with Windows Home VISTA. I tried almost here and there everything which is mentioned on forum. But it is not working.Laptop can connect with router but router is not getting connected with Internet. It's always displaying local access only which is killing me. I will try to give one more try to this setup otherwise i need to return this **** and get something else.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I am sure that Airports are WPA compatible. You manually put in the key of WPA or WPA2 in the router itself (in your case since you changed the router so please put in the key onto your aiport) make sure that this key matches the key onto the clients workstations or laptops.
Let me know.
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.
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.
