Airport Extreme Trouble with Blinking Amber Light

I was trying to set up my airport extreme with my internet when I couldn't get anywhere because of the blinking yellow light. I have a 2wire at&t router that i connected with to the airport extreme via ethernet(the port in the back has a green light btw). I tried scanning for the airport extreme with airport utility but it couldn't find anything. any suggestions?

Connect your mac to the airport extreme with an ethernet cable. Then try scanning.

do you have a usb hub plugged in? I know my AEBS doesn't finish booting up when the USB hub is plugged in.
