Really? Not really enough information to help us figure out how to assist you. Which model of the AirPort Express Base Station (AX) do you have? Is it the only router in your current network configuration? What type of Internet service do you get? Does your ISP provide you with a modem or combination modem/router? Regardless, what is its make & model? What exactly doesn't work? Did it work before and just stopped? What have you tried already to try to fix it?
Tesserax, Have seen you answer alot of airport extreme/express questions and wondering if you migh be able to help me. I am having the same problem as Ericlan(nice..). I am running a older iMac with the updated OS (Snow Leopard). I have been using the internal airport extreme for WiFi throughout the house, with absolutely no issues until about six months ago. But now it is pretty temperamental and sporadic. Below is the airport data from my sys., profiler. Software Versions: Menu Extra: 6.2.2 (622.2) configd plug-in: 6.2.5 (625.6) System Profiler: 6.0.1 (601.1) Network Preference: 6.2.2 (622.2) AirPort Utility: 5.5.3 (553.20) IO80211 Family: 3.2 (320.1) Interfaces:en1: Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x87) Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (184.108.40.206.4) Locale: FCC Country Code: US Supported PHY Modes: 802.11 a/b/g/n Supported Channels: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 149, 153, 157, 161, 165 Status: Not Associated Any thoughts??
Nothing in the segment of the System Profiler is indicating any issues as far as I can tell. What would be more helpful is to go down a bit further under "Current Network Information." Look for your wireless network, and then, provide the values for :PHY ModeChannelNetwork TypeSecuritySignal / NoiseTransmit Rate<
That could be a problem, as my network, which is normally there, is not. (I am currently experiencing my WiFi outage...) I see all of the neighbors WiFi networks, but not mine. The Network indicates that AirPort is turned on but is not connected to a network.
Let's start with your wireless router. I would recommend that you do the following as a minimum:Power-down the modem, AirPort base station, and computer(s).While all of the devices are powered-down, perform a "factory default" reset on the base station. This will get it back to its "out-of-the-box" configuration and make setting it up much easier, especially if you use the "Assist me" process within the AirPort Utility. (ref: Resetting an AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule)After the base station resets, go ahead and power it back down.Power-up the modem; wait at least 10-15 minutes.Power-up the base station; wait at least 5-10 minutes.Power-up your computer(s). In this basic configuration, computers connected to the base station, either by wire or wireless (as appropriate for the base station type), should now be able to access the Internet through the ISP's modem. Once Internet connectivity has been verified, you can use the AirPort Utility to configure the base station for wireless security and any other desired options.
