Airport connects, but internet not connecting
I've had my Mac for 3 years and never had a problem with Airport Express. If I did, I would usually turn it off and then on again and it solved the problem. The last two weeks I've been using a wi-fi hotspot near my home until I get a proper internet connection at home. Suddenly, my internet stopped working. The airport recognzies the link and still connects but the internet page says i'm not connected to the internet. I've tried using diagnostics and it says it can't fix my problem. In diagnostics, the first 3-4 lights turn on, but the last two are either yellow or red. I've changed the time to make sure it was correct, I've re-started the computer several times and it still doesn't work. I don't know what it is that is not working. The airport recognizes the signal, yet I get no internet connection. And I haven't downloaded anything recently. Please help!

If it's 4 lights, the above should work. If it's 3 lights then it won't as there's no gateway up behind the access point.

Ok, I think I got it working. I tried adding a new location in the network group in System Preferences (it's at the top). A new one named "untitled" worked fine, I guess it reset some stuff. Hope this works for the rest of you.

It might just be your Password!!
Was having similar problems to the above thread. Wifi Network was showing it was connected but I could not connect to Internet. Airport Extreme was flashing AMBER.
Modem signal was fine.
Network Prefs showed:
Airport Settings: Green
Network Settings: Green
After checking with ISP and connecting to the internet via Ethernet my ISP told me that there was something wrong with my wireless router (the Airport Extreme).
I ran Airport Utility and and it came back reporting problems.
(IMPORTANT: A few days earlier I had re-set my email password.)
As soon as I updated my "new" password in the Airport Utility...the airport restarted and I was good to go.
It was as simple as entering my new password!!
Hope that helps!!
