Question about Apple AirPort Express with AirTunes Digital Media Streamer

Apple Airport Express not working

Unfortuntely my wireless network, aka airport express just went on the blink while surfing. I contacted my ISP and nothing wrong their end, and in anycase i have the cable connected directly into my macbook.

The express is flashing amber and I have resetted both hard and factory with no joy. When i go into the airport utility, it seems to be the default settings which might be amiss:

"this apple wireless device has default settings. you should configure your apple wireless device to connect to the internet, secure the wireless network and a provide a password"

So, how do I go about reconfiguring the network, or in layman terms, getting the darn thing working again?

All help greatly appreciated.

You need to use the AirPort utility, which will walk through the setup and configuration of it. You were already on the right track to get it going. If it mentions there is an update available for it, though, do the update first.

Panasonic Viera TH-L32X30M . TV now start when switched on red flashes three times and repeating again and again.

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

Well i have downloaded itunes but dont know how to put on songs i dont want to pay tho

Do you have CDs with music on them?
You can put them into your computer and rip them using iTunes
In iTunes, go to the Preferences, and on the General tab, look at Import Settings ..
Then when you put in a CD with iTunes open, you can import and the songs will be converted to MP3.
You can of course also buy songs in the iTunes store.
If you're looking for a way to get free music, I can't offer any suggestions with that!
Good luck and have fun!
