    my airport express will not connect to my Netgear wireless router. I have the router set up with WPA-PSK [TKIP] security turned on....is this the problem? If so can some one help me while keeping my router secure? I have 3 other computers connected too.

    Have you set it up using WDS? Does your Netgear router have WDS capability?

    turn off security

    I always turn off all my security if Im having connection problems with a new device. That eliminates one bottleneck. I get it working perfectly in unsecured mode and then turn on the password WEP or WPA or whatever Im using again. It's more work but one less thing to worry about.

    I was able to get a AE to work fine with my linksys N router.
