Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I live in China and use a macbook and an Airport Express base station to acess internet. It used to work well, but after I changed my internet conection to China telecom (using an Alcatel ADSL home plusplus 500) I can't acess using airport express (because every time I conect it to the modem it does not work - doesn't get signal). I don't have any problem with the internet conection if I use an ethernet cable directly from the modem to the computer; it only malfunctions when I connect the airport base station to the modem. Can You help me?

Hello,

I found this information on another site, but it may help.

Go into your airport utility and up at the top hit internet. Go to the DHCP and look at the DHCP lease. Mine was set up for one hour. I just set it up for 365 Days. So that means, in theory, I should stay connected and I would have to hit that Renew DHCP lease once a year. :-)
It has worked fine ever since.

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.

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.

New Apple Airport Express Base station blinking amber light


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.

Apple® - AirPort Express Wireless-N Base Station


No. The airport express just has a shorter range. You can use both a regular base and express to extend the range further. Also, the express can be used at your home stereo. You can play your Itunes library directly to your stereo with an adapter to the express. Anyway, the express is just a less powerful wireless, with some special features. We print through it and use it exclusively. May add base station later. Good luck.

Networking a Printer on a wireless network


Deanna, 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.
