    I have the older Airport Extreme with a Seagate external drive attached via USB wire.
    I have it set up working as time machine backup for my MBP.

    I would like to "attach" via wireless my new MBA.

    What am I doing incorrect? Both laptops are using the same wireless network.

    Am I doing something incorrect with the settings?

    I unplugged the external drive, took the MBA near the airport extreme and it found it.
    all is well.
