    Ok,


    I got an Airport express and for the first couple of months i've been fin and learning how to use it.

    I set it up so i have 2 profile settings....

    one of them is my home setting that takes the express and connects it to my currently working network and extends it wirelessly.

    the second setting takes it and disables internet and sets up a wireless network to connect and pay air tunes.

    Now every time i take the express past the reach of the home network it just freezes in the yellow blinking sate and wont let me find it with the airport utility.


    Now i have the second profile set up for it to work, but the problem is that it wont let me connect to it to change it, so it just keeps blinking forever... untill i bring it back into the range of my home network.


    Any ideas on how to find it with my airport utility when out of the range?

    Any help is appreciated! Thanks =D

    Just plug in an ethernet cable to the express<-->computer. No matter what your settings, the airport utility will find it and you'll be able to change the settings. I do this all the time.
