You need to perform a soft reset of your router. There directions to do this from the Apple web site are:

  1. Connect the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule to power.
  2. Press and hold the reset button with a pen or pencil for 1 full second, then release it. The light (LED) will begin flashing amber, indicating that the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule is in soft reset mode.
  3. From the AirPort menu bar item, choose the network created by the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule (the network name does not change).
  4. Open AirPort Utility in Applications > Utilities on a Mac using Mac OS X, and in Start > All Programs > AirPort on a computer using Windows.
  5. Select the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule and click Continue.
  6. A window indicating that the device has been reset will appear.
  7. Select "Restore the previous settings" and select OK.
  8. Move through subsequent windows to make changes to your passwords or other settings as desired, clicking Continue after each one.
  9. When you have moved through all of the selection windows you will be able to select Update. Click Update to install the new settings.
  10. Click Continue to allow your AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule to restart.
  11. Quit AirPort Utility.

Can I down load any thing to get a better wire less connnection, it worked in the beginning but not now any more i have a "AirPort Extreame" wire less router thanks Alex keller


The first choice for AirPort Extreme base stations in this instance is to look at the firmware. Generally, using the most recent firmware version is the preference, but in some cases actually going to an older version may increase stability. Launch the AirPort Extreme Admin Utility (in Applications/Utilities); then select the appropriate Base Station in the left-hand pane. The firmware version currently installed will appear on the right-hand side.

The current version is at least 5.7. However, many folks have corrected dropout issues with their AirPort Extremes by reverting to Version 5.5.1. This link will take you to the download page for 5.5.1. Download the file, and then use the Updater application to install it. A caution in this approach is that you may lose some features that perhaps you had been using, but the rate of success for this approach is significant. You can revert back to your current version (be sure to write it down before you change it) if you wish.

NOTE that you MUST be sure that you are working with the firmware for the AirPort Extreme, and NOT the firmware for the AirPort Express. They are not the same.

Hope that's helpful.

If you are sure that you didn't set the password, then the default password must be set with your Airport Extreme System. It depends on the model, some have none, some have; admin, tech, unknown, security, etc.. etc..

Trouble connecting Power Mac G4 Airport saying "invalid password"


WPA is supported by both the Airport Extreme and Mac OS versions 10.3.
It's possible you need to change your encryption specification on the Netgear to "Shared Key" instead of the default "Open."

I forgot my password and now I cannot connect with


if you need to recover a used wifi key, its not possible from within windows as they are all encrypted when added, you need to search for a wifi key recovery software, there are some that recover and back up keys used on the machine, so i would start there :)

Try this in this order:

  1. Verify your aux on the DE675 is working with another analog audio source.
  2. Unplug the G5 -> optical -> DE675 and try playing itunes through the Extreme only into the DE675's aux.
  3. Optical digital audio output on the Mac is VERY fussy, so I'd stay off of the optical unless it's absolutely necessary.
  4. If you're finding that the Extreme is not putting out any sound at all, try this: Reset and update the firmware on the Extreme. Also, make sure your Mac is very updated with the latest iTunes, operating system updates, etc.

Apple extreme bridged to apple extreme (Windows network)


Hi,
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.
