    Ive had my express for almost two years now, and suddenly last night it would keep timing out when trying to connect to it.

    I have done everything to it from reseting to connecting to it via ethernet cable, and every time the connection keeps timing out.

    I have got it to connect with the airport utility, but the connection gets dropped after a minute or two.

    Im pretty much ready to throw it out and grab myself a linksys/netgear N wireless router.

    Anyone have any suggestions I could try that I have not done already?

    Have you tried connecting from a different computer if possible? Have you added any phones in the 2.4Ghz range? Where is the device located relative to your computer? Is your computer able to connect to other wireless devices without issues?

    Cheers

    When it's fried the power will not come on at all.
