    Hi everyone,

    I've got an Airport Express that, when connected to the existing wireless network, continues to blink an amber light (No IP address, right?).

    I've had the Airport Express create its own network, and I can stream music through to it just fine. When I have it join the network my laptop uses, the light just keeps blinking yellow, and I have to hard reset it to be able to get to its configuration again. iTunes never sees it.

    Anyone have any ideas for this?

    Thanks all!

    plug an ethernet cable between your laptop and the express to do the configuring. You will be able to see why the amber light is blinking. once everything is set up and working you can remove the cable.
