    Hi there

    My airport express was working fine as a wireless network point (ie not extending the network, just part of it - my main wireless router is a netgear 54g), acting as a print server and airtunes server for my hifi.

    But i had to encrypt my router (i did 64bit WEP) and now i can't find the airport express on the network. Everything works (email, web browsing, networking), but not the airport express.

    Main computers are:

    Dual core G5 Powermac, wired to netgear router
    IBM Thinkpad laptop with 11b wireless card

    Any idea how to get my airport express working again?

    Cheers

    fixed it :)

    i had to plug it in to the network with a wire, set it up like i want it using airport admin utility, then pull the network cable out, and all is well

    cheers
