Hi there pals.

I've installed AirPort Extreme on my Windows 7 PC. No problem with the installation. However, when I tried to start the application it stated that it "requires Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or later". I thought there might be compatibility problems, so I uninstalled and reinstalled with XP SP2 compatibility settings. I still get the same response that "Airport Utility requires bla bla".
Could you help?

I have an Apple AirPort Extreme router connected to my Windows 7 laptop. It also connects all sorts of other devices all of which are working great.

The router has been working fine, except now it does not find my hidden network. I have to connect through my guest network. When I search for the hidden network, I can find it but it won't connect even though I know the password entered is correct.

I went into my AirPort Utility to change the settings that now says it "can't find any AirPort Utility devices. Make sure is in range and scan again. " The router is right next to my laptop so that is not an issue.

Why can it not find my devices?

I really would like to do a factory reset and change the whole network name and password and not make the network hidden this time.

Is that as easy as it sounds?

I can't find the original CD that came with the extreme but already have the AirPort Utility installed on my laptop, so it should just pick up the new installation - right???

Hi, just bought the microsoft 802.11 g router MN-700. I installed and have my base running ok on my desktop pc (win98se) with file sharing enabled. I have a new HP laptop zx5060 with a Broadcom 54g 802.11g in it. I can't seem to get it to connect with the base. I don't know what settings I should use for its tcp/ip. I put in the same IP address, subnet mask and gateway numbers from the base unit, but that didn't work, I tried auto obtain address, that also didn't work. (winXP) I must be missing something, in the properties it says the adapter is working properly. Any help appreciated!

Happy Holidays!

I'm trying to hardwire a new desktop system running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit to my ancient Microsoft MN-500 wireless base station router, and I'm getting an unstable, intermittent connection. I have a Windows XP laptop that is connected wirelessly to the router with no issues, and the previous XP desktop that was hardwired to the router had no issues either. I removed the anti-virus (Norton) completely to rule that out. The connection is fine for about a minute or two, then all Internet I/O will stop (and will eventually come back several minutes later). Any thoughts? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi, I have a airport express base station model: A1088, This was used by someone else, I set it back to factory settings and I want to set it up to my Hi Fi system to play songs from itunes, Im using a pc with windows 7, i have a bigpond elite wireless modem which is connected to my desktop with an ethinet cable.

I have downloaded airport utility from the apple site, but when I plug the AE in, I lose internet access, its as if this over powers my modem or something, airport utility doesnt recognise the AE either. When I unplug the AE, I still have no internet acess and the only was I can get it back is by doing a system restore. What is happening ???

I googled and came across this page, http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1765010&tstart=0 which I followed very careful, but still no luck and lose of internet, another system restore gets me back online again.

I use cable internet. I have two computers. I set up a home network using Microsoft Base Station so that both computers can access internet at the same time.

During the process of setting up Microsoft Base Station, the software asks me if I would like to share all files on the network. I don't know if this means just share files with my other computer or with all the computers on cable network?

If I choose Yes to share all files, is it safe? Will my zone alarm still be able to keep hackers out?

I've had my MN-500 Base Station since 2003 operating flawlessly with our household's various computers using XP operating systems. Since upgrading to Vista on most of them I find that Vista won't allow me to update my MN-500's firmware (which is currently operating on an outdated 2003 update level).

The problem began when I replaced our base XP home computer with an entirely new Vista computer. The old XP was up-to-date (circa 2007) with the MN-500 updates. The new Vista had the old MN-500 installation disc (circa 2003) setup info downloaded but does not have any apparent compatibility which would allow for firmware updates to the present.

As a result, since going with Vista the MN-500's signal has been intermittent with my laptop. I figured that when our base XP computer was replaced with a Vista model all our MN-500 updates went with the old hard drive. Thus, the need to catch up with all the old firmware upgrades and perhaps solve the connectivity issue.

Is Microsoft orphaning the MN-500? Can someone tell me how to upgrade my MN-500's firmware on a Vista O/S?

I have a question about the product mentioned in the title. I understand it lets you stream video from the station to your computer with included software. It has composite, s-video, and component inputs. Does that mean that I can stream the HD video signal from any HD source supporting Component (my Xbox 360) and record it? I'd considered getting a new capture card so I could record with better quality than my Pinnacle 700-usb plus. I don't see why I wouldn't be able to do it this way, but I can't find any detailed info on it, so can someone here let me know please? Thank you.

When my DSL modem is connected directly to my computer I can connect to the internet. When my Microsoft MN500 wireless base station is connected between the modem and the computer I get error 678: The remote computer did not respond. I have had this problem previously but can't remember how to fix it. Can anyone help???
My OS is Windows XP.

A:Internet connection problem with base station connected

Well, I'd start by resetting the MN-500 to factory defaults:
To restore the base station to factory default settings

1. Use a pointed object to press and hold the Reset button on the back of the base station.
2. When the Power light on the front begins to blink green and orange, release the Reset button.
The Power light first turns solid orange. When it turns solid green, the restoration is complete. This process takes about a minute.Click to expand...

If you don't have the manuals for the box, here's the download page: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/902461

Obviously, after resetting it to factory defaults, you'll have to do any configuration of the wireless that you need, like setting up encryption, etc.

So I just returned my linksys G (my pc couldnt hook to the net for some reason) and I get my M$ mn-820 G Kit
when im installing it (i got the components installed) the setup wizard wont recognise my base station. Ive tried 9 different pairs and combinations of ethernet cable and it still wont see the base(funny thing is im hooked up to the G router right now as im typing this)
The help section said to disable NAT on my modem (I dont have any documentation or anything for my modem)

(Last night when my linksys was hooked the setup wiz did the same thing and didnt detect the base... and the only was i could do my stuff upstairs was to have the adapter straight connected to the item(laptop, xbox))

Community: we just recently purchased a brand new Thinkpad X1 Extreme laptop and Thunderbolt 3 Workstation Dock.The Laptop is awesome but unfortunately we're on our second dicking station and wondering what we're doing wrong--or if we have a defect.  The docking station came with a 230W and 65W AC power cord, and the dock has both a 230W/170W port and 135W/65W power port. When the 230W cord is plugged into the 230W port, the dock doesn't turn on (nothing plugged in). When the 65W cord is plugged into the 135W/65W port, it lights up but no network when a laptop is plugged in or charge. The only way I get a light on the station is to plug the 230W cord into the 135W/65W port, and then when a laptop is plugged in I get network and charge. We contacted Lenovo and they sent a replacement as they admitted it was not working as it should. The second one also exhibits the exact same behavior and we are at a loss and ready to return for a refund.  I also don't want to plug a 230W power brick into a 135W/65W port for fear of overheating. Anyone else experience this or have any ideas, we'd like to hear them.  Thanks.

My X1 Extreme is experiencing an issue when re-connecting to a thunderbolt docking station (the one with two power adapters - 65W and 230W). I am unsure if this is a patch/firmware related issue, but my system is fully updated (Windows 1903) if that help.The problem only becomes apparent when the system is re-connected to the docking station. When the system is first booted, no problem at all, when undocked, also no problem. The problem comes on when I reconnect to the dock. Everything starts to lag to the point where even moving around an empty Notepad window is very choppy. The cursor, and input (typing) lags, opening and closing windows, etc. The system becomes so laggy that each time I reconnect to the docking station, I need to reboot to get back into a usable state. Does anyone experience a similar issue? Any idea how to resolve the problem?  I  appreciate any input.

I am having some connection problems to a mysql database for a small shop, which is located on a shared hosting server. I am using Open Office Base as a front end on Windows 7. I will create a form which is simple and easy to use for someone that is non technical, I could not use for example phpmyadmin or something that exposes too many options to the employee. OO Base does connect successfully but after a short time of inactivity there is an error message which is SQL Status: HY000 Error code: 2006 MySQL server has gone away. The reason for this has been determined that there is a time out of only 30 seconds which unfortunately I cannot change, as it is set by the hosting company in the my.conf file on the server. They also as most web hosts are of limited help. OK fine so I should just be able to reconnect. The problem is that Open Office proceeds to crash and I have to go through a file recovery window and there are several steps including having to re-type the password again to connect. I really need to solve two things here, prevent OO crashing and also having it realize it lost the connection and just re-connecting, without having to type in the password again. I have tried turning off the auto recovery of files but it didn't work, I have tried adding no restore as an option in the shortcut, also didn't work. I have tried enabling connection pooling, it also didn't work. For reconnecting I tried adding ?autoReconnect=true to the end of the database name a... Read more

Where are my manners. Let's hit first base, shall we? I figure before I beg for help I'll at least say hi.

I'm an apps developer (business, nothing too hardcore) (so read as: "DANGEROUS TO SELF AND OTHERS!") I got sucked into a personal challenge of finding the source of a virus/malware/whatever on the boyfriend's netbook instead of just running tools or posting questions. In doing so, I mighta infected my work machine. At some ungodly hour (like now) I was tired and when i thought I would get the option to select Notepad to open with, a file opened in a utility of some sort. Uh oh... Brand spanking new work machine, brand spanking new image with Windows7, finally got all my stuff installed.... I don't want the PC guys to re-image and the guy I worked with thought everything wass just fine on it. However he didn't know about the "Hide system files (recommended)" under the Tools menu in windows explorer.

So before losing all my setup I thought I'd give it one last chance

BTW, I was intrigued by the training offered here. It mentioned 'learn at your own pace' but there are no slots open. Why can't that training be made available to do solo without personal feedback? And therefore no ability to respond to posts..?
