OS X Mavericks :: Old Airport Express Running 10.9.4 - Cannot Install 5.6 Airport Utility
Sep 7, 2014
I have an old Airport Express (A1088).I am running OSX 10.9.4 - I have downloaded Airport Utility 5.6 and yet cannot install - I am getting "This version of Mac OS X¬† on this volume is not supported".Unfortunately no PC or old Mac available. I used to be able set up on IOS but cannot do that anymore either.Any clues how to re-setup this old airport that works ok.
MacBook Air (13-inch Mid 2012), OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)
After configuring wireless security on my Airport Extreme base station, the Airport Express I use to stream iTunes music to my whole-house stereo system has disappeared. Airport Utility can't see it. Yes, I checked connections. All I get is a blinking yellow light on the Express. The base station works as its supposed to.
I have a 17" Powerbook G4 with a 1.33 GHz Power PC processor. I'm running MacOS 10.5.8
AirPort Express doesn't show up in AirPort Utility 6.0. I haven't updated the AirPort utility on my laptop, and can find it there. 6.0 doesn't even has a scan button... I've done a hard reset of the AirPort Express, still isn't showing up.
my airport express is in the other room so i can play my xbox360 online. but recently my express is flashing amber? and when i go to the airport utility i cant see my airport express.. so i just want to know how to get my airport express to get internet to it so i can plug and ethernet cord from my xbox360 to my airport express?
I then whantet to reconnect my Airport Express, witch i use for music in the living room.But i couldent for the life of me find out how to do that, so i thougt, ill just reset the thing, and set it up again.But this is where the problem starts.Every time i try to connect to the Express via the wifi list, the Airport Utility starts up fine, and starts the setup, but then crashes...!It dose this every time, at the same place, when it says "reading previous settings".†Im running an iMac with lion 10.7.3 and Airport Utility is version 6.0.
So I have an airport extreme. I am planning on getting an airport express, to use exclusively for airtunes. I have a Palm Pre (it's WiFi is only b/g not N). If I use the Palm Pre on my airport extreme, it lowers my wifi connection to G speeds as opposed to N. Can I make the airport express run on G only but still extend the extreme's wifi (running on N)?
I have an Airport Extreme, with two USB hard drives connected to it. The Airport Extreme shares these disks to my wireless network via Airport Disks.
Upstairs I have an Airport Express, that wirelessly connects to my Airport Extreme downstairs, and extends the wireless network so I get a good wireless reception upstairs.
My problem is, that it does not seem like me Airport Express does a good job of forwarding my 2 USB Airport Disks to the extended wireless network upstairs.
For example, when I use the AirVideo iPhone app to stream video from my USB Airport Disks I get a server connection error when I go upstairs and the iPad/iPhone switches to the Airport Express networks. I cannot reconnect as long as it is on the Airport Express network. If I turn the airport Express off, and thus switch to the poor wireless reception from the Airport Extreme, I can connect to the USB Airport disks again.
The Airport Express is connected to the Airport Extreme in bridged mode.
Can it? If it can, would Airtunes still work like normal.
In other words, can I be connected to my Airport EXTREME and Airtunes would still work since the Airport EXTREME and EXPRESS are using the same network wifi-name (the Express is just extending the Extreme's range).
This might seem an odd question but I had to replace my last Airport Extreme base station as it was faulty....I've now got the newer "Dual Band Extreme Base Station". I want to avoid any conflicts with my old settings for my wireless network with my MBP. Should I uninstall the last version of Airport Utility?Is there anything else anyone would recommend before i install or connect the new hardware/software?
When I am on my wireless network at home, I cannot print to my printer (via AirPort).When I go to the router and connect with ethernet cable, the AirPort magically detects itself in seconds.I have Windows 7 computers running bonjour and they can print just fine using AirPort.I was able to print fine wirelessly to the AirPort but today it's not working.
The latest upgrade of AIrport Utility doesn't support my Airport extreme, but the old version 5.6.1 says it doesn't work in Lion. How was I managing my Airport before th 6 update? What do I do now? Will I have to get a new Airport?
I have DSL service. I have an iPod Touch and an iPad 1 that I'm trying to connect. I just upgraded both iDevices to iOS5. I've been having trouble keeping an internet connection live for them, but now I can't even get the wi-fi to connect.
MBP 2.2; OSX 10.4.11; Airport Express 802.11n (version 7.3.2); WD MyBook 320GB (format Mac OS Extended) I'm trying to get the WD HDD setup as a wireless hard drive, but it's not showing up at all in Airport Utility (I don't even have a 'disk' tab in the 'manual setup' menu). Airport Disk Utility just says "no airport disks found." Of course the HDD works fine when plugged in directly to the MBP. I've searched apple support and these forums, but haven't found anything that works yet. All help I have found says use the 'disk tab' in AE manual setup window. What do I do without a 'disk' tab? (or how do I get one?) is this a firmware/software issue with the AE?
I currently have the apple extreme as my wireless router. It works great. I absolutely love it. I have two macbook pro's (wife and I both have one) and use it for my PS3 and Xbox 360. I started a new job and was given a free HP desktop (not my choice, but hey, it's free, so what can I say). The desktop is not wireless and I am not able to put my computer near the airport extreme because my TV already owns that territory. Today I bought the Airport express to use as a bridge (and other things in the future). I have plugged it in. I opened the airport utility using my macbook. It finds my extreme and my express. I select that I want to set up the express. I select that I want to set it up using an existing wireless network. I select my airport extreme. It tells me that it has to restart the express. I wait approximately 3 minutes. It then tells me that the settings to the express have been changed but it's not able to find it.
My main goal is to use the express as a bridge. I have the express plugged in beside the desktop and want to run an ethernet cable from the express to the desktop to allow for wireless capability.
I'm running OX 10.4.11 on a G5. I have airport on my computer and at one point was able to share files from my desktop to a laptop. However at some point something happened and I can no longer do this.
I can't get into my network preferences as the following message comes up - "your network preferences have been changed by another application" and I have to force quite to get out of the window.
I have since purchases airport express and my husband got it to work at home. Now I just tried to install it on my desktop and it won't work. There are probably numerous problems here.
I have been try to update the Airpor Utility on My snow Leoprad server on a mac mini..I keep getting the following error¬†6/13/12 9:05:16 AMInstallerThe outer edges of the subview frames are supposed to line up with the split view's bounds' edges.

Contact the software manufacturer for assistance.I have repaired permissions checked the Hard rive an d now am sort of lost..I am not losing sleep ovetr it as I have been moving away from teh airports express due to it streaming issues.. but still I guess its OCD when I want o keep the server up to date
I recently moved into a new apartment that has an Airport Express connected to a cable modem. The network does not have a password. I want to put a password on it so that not everyone in the building can use our internet.
When I connect to the Airport via the Airport Utility, it recognizes the Airport, but asks for a password when I try to configure it. I tried doing a soft reset on the Airport, but it didn't change anything. Are there two passwords for an Airport? If so, how can I bypass the second one? The "Resetting Airport Express" page at [URL] doesn't answer this question. Do I need to do a hard reset? If so, is there anything I need to know about that? We no longer have any of the original literature that came with the product.
I am upgrading from a g wireless router to an n. I have a Belkin right now that I hate. Neither I, on a mac, nor my roommate, on a PC, can get a consistent connection on it. Needless to say it's going back and I want to get an express or an extreme. I had actually bought an Airport Extreme first and it was lightening fast, but I was told that the Express was just as fast, so I went to exchange. The guy at BestBuy told me the Belkin was cheaper and just as fast, so I bought it. I would really like this to be my last trip to the store for a router. Do I need to shell out for the Extreme or is the Express just as fast if all you need is an n router?
I bought the new airport extreme to extend the wifi range in my household and hoped to share a hdd. Upon my experience and reading the forums, the sharing hdd is not as easy as I thought. But that is not my issue at the moment.
My issue is with extending the network. A couple weeks of ago, I did the setup to connect the two airport extremes together (older round AE & new box AE) using aiport utility. It seemed to have work because the signal was stronger in a part of the house that usually had 0 to 1 bar.
But shortly after, the signal showed itself as inconsistent. The signal strenght is jumpy from 0 to full bars. And right now, I am sitting in a part of the house that used to have 0 bars and now, I get full bars. And yet my mbp cannot see the newer, closer in distance AE.
I have an Airport Express and when I go to configure it it does not appear on the list of available networks. I have the AC plugged in and ethernet cable from my router attached to it. I get nothing! The light on the AE is green but my iBook G4 can't see it. From what I've read this looks to be a fairly simple plug and play operation.
I have an Airport Extreme Base Station and a Airport Express sitting in boxes, never being used. Our house is already equipped with wireless connection through our DSL and Linksys router. (was in place when I moved in)
I was thinking of getting a time capsule for back up, but not sure if I could get it up and running with the Linksys or not.
Can I use my Express as an extender for using my laptop in the backyard? will it talk nicely with the Linksys?
What are your suggestions/opinions? I hate to see my beautiful Apple products sitting in boxes.
I'm looking for a repeater of sorts, similar to the Airport express, but just not as expensive.
The issue is that my macbook drops out randomly, sometimes it just goes through phases where it drops the connection about 20 times in 30 minutes.
The issue is that the modem-router cannot be moved as its phone line based, so I think my last option is a repeater. The Express seemed ideal as its a small, simple unit that can be plugged straight into the socket, which would be perfect for where I wish to place it - is there a cheaper alternative?
I have a Airport Express 802.11n (AE) early 2008 S/N 6F8437ZJZP8 working since 2 years, I use it to connect to printers an run it on wifi. Recently stopped working the green light was steady yellow. I search the forum did a soft reset, hard reset, factory default reset, etc and Is not working. Now all it does is when is connected to the outlet stays on yellow for few minutes and then shut off by it self. I even tried to connect by ethernet cable but when I run it my mac says nothing is connected to the cable and is a new one. When I tried to connect my mac can't find the devise true the airport utility. I have a mac laptop G4 12" Mac OS X 10.4.11 The airport utility is version 5.4.2 and both are up to date when I run the update application.
I have two airport express base stations. One upstairs connected to my dsl router and I can see the status of that one in the airport utility. I plugged the printer and speakers into another downstairs and plugged it in the wall but now I have a blinking orange light. I have no idea what my next step is. I have an iMac and two MacBooks that all share the connection.
