    Good Morning,
    Last night i picked up a Macbook 1.83! Now that I have a mac again, I wanted to set up my wireless network using an airport base station.
    I used this same base station a year ago when i had my ibook, setup was easy, and i was online in minuets. Last night was a different story.
    I plugged in the basestation, and hit the little reset button witha pen, the lights in the front cycled and when it was done "rebooting" i plugged in some cat-5.
    I opened up the airport config assitiant and began trying to configure the basestation. Every time I run the setup wizard my macbook cna not find the basestation.
    I have tried rebooting the airport, in different ways but all have the same end result.
    I would like to ask if there is a proper way to reboot an airport, has anyone else had this problem? its getting frustrating, and i need help.
    Thank you.

    Is it an AirPort Express?

    If so, rebooting instructions - which work! - are here: You'll want to "restore to factory defaults."
