Try resetting your airport express device, there are instructions on how to do so here:
http://www.macworld.com/article/36834/2004/08/000282.html

I would try the soft reset, hard reset, and then as a last case the factory restore reset.
Your airport express will start working again!
please rate my solution

    I would recommend starting with a HARD reset, not soft. That way you can keep your passwords and other setup and make getting back onto the internet that much faster.

  • chzafrany Aug 01, 2010

    thank up - Can't find your page and I already tried to reset - even a factory reset!

  • Nick Aug 02, 2010

    Here are the instructions on how to perform a Hard Reset:

    Hard Reset



    With the AirPort Express plugged into power, press and hold the
    device's reset button for 10 seconds. A green light will flash for a bit
    and then the device will reset itself -- a process that takes about 45
    seconds. Once reset, you can configure it with the AirPort Express
    Assistant or the AirPort Admin Utility.
    hope this helps.

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.

Arris Modem won't work with Airport Express


Not sure how helpful this will be, as I'm running a different piece of gear, plus it requires both troubleshooting + ISP assistance.  I had a similar problem with my AirPort Extreme: AirPort Extreme saw the Arris, iBook saw the AirPort Extreme, but no internet connectivity.
  1. In my case, I needed to set the AirPort to DHCP in the AirPort Utility application.
  2. Power down the AirPort Extreme
  3. Power down the Arris. You achieve this by unplugging the Arris *and* removing the back-up battery.
  4. Wait a few moments.
  5. Insert the battery into the Arris.
  6. Plug in the Arris power supply.
  7. Wait for the Arris to go through the restart protocol; when all the lights on the front panel are solid green, the start-up is complete.
  8. Power up the AirPort Extreme; wait for the front panel light to go solid green.
As I was doing this, I had my ISP on the phone that confirmed complete connectivity of the signal path and ensured that I was online.  While the Arris was powered down, my ISP also sent a "message" to the Arris; I don't know if this was a software update or what.  I completed the AirPort set-uo through the Utility application, the AirPort restarted, and I was online.
Hope this helps.

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


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.

Can't connect to the internet with my Airport Express


Make sure your network settings are set to DHCP manually and that you are getting an IP address that does NOT start with 169.258

If you are using a Windows PC you may have to use the ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew to refresh your DHCP settings.

Also try using the Airport utility (located in the Utilities folder) if you have a Mac. It will tell you if there is an issue.

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.
