    I have an old Airport Express that I need to join to my wifi network. I currently have one Airport Express setup.

    However, after I reset the old one, on my MacBook Air with Yosemite running I am not able to configure it because it opens in the new Airport Utility.

    I do have the old Airport Utility (5.6.1) running, but I am not able to see the old Airport Express in it if I just open it.

    Is there a way to force my Mac to open the old Airport Express in the old Airport Utility and not the new one?

    Thanks in advance...

    Try configuring it over Ethernet.

    I assume you also reset the AE? It works fine here, but the Express is connected to my Extreme via Ethernet.

    The Express uses the old protocols of wifi A, B and G. Make sure your Mac also uses these protocols, you can check it in system preferences.
