OS X V10.7 Lion :: AirPort Utility 6.0 Can't Find AirPort Express?
Mar 13, 2012
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.
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.
Info: 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
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.
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.
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.
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 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?
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 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 a Macbook (white unibody) running Snow Leopard. I have a personal wireless network using an Airport Extreme and I have an external hard drive (WD) connected to the Airport Extreme. I use this hard drive for my Time Machine Back ups.
I just got back from a trip and tried to back up my time machine. I got the error that the back up disk is not available. I then tried to open the airport utilities.
It tells me that "Airport Utilities is unable to find any Airport Wireless devices". I find this doubly strange because I have no problem connecting to the internet on this wireless network which supposedly does not exist.
I've repeatedly get:¬†kernel: com.apple.message.domain: [URL].. I don't know for a fact what it means or what it's for but, after some research, the general consensus has made it quite clear that I need to upgrade Airport Utility to v7.5.2.¬†The problem is that I can't seem to find it.¬† This upgrade, apparently, was available well before Lion came out.
Currently, I has v6.0.¬†If there is a known issue with Airport that promted newer versions to be released, then why can I not update to the latest version available? ¬†a direct reply would be nice.¬† Simply send me a message though Apple Support, if possible, or firstname.lastname@example.org, or simply reply on this forum and , I hope, I should get a notification.

In AirPort Utility I have just noticed (possibly since doing the OS X update to 10.7.3, early March 2012) that there is no longer a button to 'Disconnect All Users" from a Time Capsule disk.¬†I used to:Open Airport UtilityClick Manual SetupClick the Disks iconClick the button that says Disconnect All Users¬†However, the AirPort Utility interface is now different. Anyone know how to disconnect all users from a Time Capsule?
I have an Airport Extreme Base Station set up that is connected to my modem.¬† I purchased a new Airport Express that I have used to extend my network.¬† I plugged my Canon MF8050cn printer into the USB port of the airport express.¬† I've added the printer successfully, but when I try printing to the Canon via wifi, I get this error:¬† ¬†
"Canon CMFP Printer Driver; Printer is not responding.Check the printer power and connection, and then try sending printing job again."¬†Printer power is on and connected correctly.¬†As a side note, I am able to print to the printer successfully when I plug the printer into my macbook air directly via USB.¬† So I have two printers added, "Canon - USB" and "Canon - Wifi".¬† The latter is the one that gives me the error. I purchased the airport express so I could print wirelessly as I'm unable to move my printer closer to the Base Station.¬†
Info: AirPort Express 802.11n (1st Gen), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
The recent software update has caused a problem. The update for Air Port Utility was corrupted and did not download. I have run software update several times since then and nothing has changed.†How do I clear out the corrupted file so update can start over? (MBP Lion 10.7.4)
I've just taken receipt of a Linksys NSLU2 "Slug".¬† It's essentially a small diskless NAS that allows you to plug in and share USB hard drives over the network.¬† It passes its own POST, and is connected via a fully-functional Cat6 ethernet cable to an Airport Extreme Base Station 802.11n (hereafter simply, "AEBS") running firmware 7.6.1. In a nutshell: I can't make the Linksys NSLU2 (hereafter known as simply, "the slug") available over the network.¬†
The problem appears to be this: the slug requires that the LAN use a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.¬† This is its default setting and, if it can be changed, I have to get it connected to the network first.¬† The AEBS currently reports a subnet mask of 255.255.252.0.¬† So far as I have been informed, it is this subnet mask mismatch between the slug and the AEBS that is preventing connectivity.I'm currently using Airport Utility 5, simply because I'm more accustomed to its settings.¬† If I launch it, authenticate into Manual Setup, and navigate to Internet>TCP/IP, it displays the following information:¬† Actual problem:If I edit the Subnet Mask to 255.255.255.0, and click UPDATE, I get the following error message:The router address you have entered is not compatible with your WAN IP address
It then lets me change the Router Address before continuing.¬† However, neither I nor my friend (whom I do believe knows more than a fair bit about networking) have any idea what this Router Address is.¬† It is in no way similar to the router's Private IP Address assigned using DHCP ranges.¬† It is a Public IP Address, and shares the first two octets with my IP Address.¬† Because neither I nor my friend know what this represents, or what it is for, we're reluctant to mess with it.¬† But until we "mess" with it, we can't change the subnet mask on the AEBS, and thus I can't access the slug!
So, basically, ever since Lion, my external harddrive has had trouble being found while using the USB slot in the Airport Extreme. Anyway, so the HDD can be seen in the Airport Utility under Disks but I actually cannot access it through Finder. I have ticked the boxes to show External Harddrives in Finder and all that, so I am pretty connfused. All I use it for is watching movies off and TV shwos so I can save space on my MacBook Pro. So yeah, no Time Machine stuff which I usally see about this topic ¬†

Using a MBP 15 with latest Lion and Airport utility versions.¬† When I start up my computer, the utility loads each time which is annoying.¬† I went down the menu choices on the utility but can't find a way to stop this.
After upgrading to Lion on my Macbook Air, I can't seem to be able to connect to my external speakers through airport express. Somehow I can't get the little icon I used to do, on the bottom right corner of the iTunes window (on the left of genius) to select the speakers. I checked the preferences in vain.
Info: MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.4), Have airport express installed
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.
