I've googled and searched everywhere, and have not found a solution to my problem. I'm so frustrated trying to set this thing up.. I have an airport express base station and a netgear powerline adaptor. I know both work independently; the AEX has worked previously with creating a network and extending a network. The powerline adaptor provides great signal strength when plugged in directly to my Macbook Pro via ethernet. I'm trying to use the AEX and Netgear together to create a new wireless network in one hard to reach section of our house. I plug in the netgear and the AEX, connect via ethernet, and go through the AEX setup wizard to create a new network. Everything seems to go as it should, and soon the AEX light is a solid green. However, when I connect to the wifi network, i get the exclamation point on top of the wireless signal, and a quick look in sys prefs>>network shows that I have a self assigned IP address and cannot connect. Here's what I've tried as fixes: Renew DHCP Lease Hard reset AEX and start again Reset both modem and AEX, let both sit for 10-15 min and try setup again Can anyone offer any other advice or assistance? This is beyond frustrating! Thanks!
