1. Before you go wireless, physically connect your AirPort to your router with an Ethernet cable. Plug in the AirPort, and wait until the LED turns solid green.
2. Start the AirPort Admin Utility for Windows. You now want to configure the AirPort to join your existing network "wirelessly". You should see the AirPort Base Station appear with its IP address in the Base Station Chooser.
3. In the lower right-hand corner, click on Configure... Click on the AirPort tab. In the "AirPort Network" section, Use base station to: "Join an Existing Wireless Network". Underneath that, type in your existing wireless "Network Name". You will be asked to change the password as well.
4. Click "Update" in the lower right-hand corner of the Configure window. Your AirPort will be restarted, and the LED should turn solid green again.
5. Finally, disconnect the AirPort from your router, and remove the connecting cable. You should NOW be able to plug in your AirPort anywhere to join your existing network.
I read other folks advice, but none of them gave me a complete A-Z for connecting to an existing network using WinXP and 802.11b. Here's my instructions borrowing certain parts from other postings (thanks, btw!)...
1. Download and install the latest version of iTunes.
2. Physically connect your new AirPort Express to your wireless router with an Ethernet cable. Plug in the AirPort Express into the wall, and wait until the LED turns solid green (up to a few minutes).
3. Insert the CD-ROM that came with the product and run the Install program on your computer.
4. Once installed, start the "AirPort Admin Utility" for Windows. [Note: do NOT use the "AirPort Express Assistant" AT ALL as this software will lead to a dead end if you're trying to connect to your existing non-Apple AirPort Basestation network (eg; this tool doesn't work if you have Netgear, Linksys, Belkin, etc).]
5. Select your new Airport Express name in the Base Station Chooser list and then click "Configure" in the bottom right corner.
6. Click on the "AirPort" tab. In the "AirPort Network" section, select "Use base station to: Join an Existing Wireless Network".
7. Type in your existing wireless "Network Name" [note: if you don't know this, in WinXP go to "View Network Connections > View available wireless networks" and find the name of the wireless network you are using. Note this name and how it is spelled, as it is case sensitive = you have to enter it just like this in the AirPort set-up.].Read more ›
1) connect to your stereo to play music from iTunes
2) connect to a (supported) USB printer to serve as a wireless print server
3) serve as a convenient, take-everywhere wireless router
4) extend the wireless range of some WDS-compatible wireless routers (such as Apple's recent Airport "flying saucer" routers)
That's quite a lot, and the most surprising thing is that it does them all quite well.
I mainly use mine to play music from my computer onto my main stereo system. It couldn't be easier to use: from any computer in the house, launch iTunes, select the Airport Express (instead of "Computer") for output, and from then on the music you play on iTunes plays on your stereo instead, with zero loss of quality. This applies not only to MP3 or AAC music (including tunes purchased from the iTunes Music Store) but also to internet radio and even music CDs played straight from the drive.
Most networked music players either have some sort of display (such as the Squeezebox and the Roku Soundbridge which are also great products, and the Netgear and Linksys boxes, which aren't) -- or they rely on a video interface (Roku media box, Happauge MVP, etc...). The unique design of the Airport Express is that it places the user interface on the computer and pushes the music to the receiver, instead of giving the receiver a user interface allowing the user to pull music from the server. All in all, the Roku Soundbridge and the Squeezebox are probably better products if all you want is a network music player. They're also much more expensive. But if you don't mind going to your computer to select music, the Airport Express is very compelling with its reach feature set, very high quality and reliability, and inexpensive price.

Bought this so I could stream my music to my stereo. Took awhile to configure since it is an old model and my MacBook has a newer iOS, but worth the hassle for the price.Published 8 months ago by Anthony

Good, works fine, just little outdated. It needs an older version of airport utility (5) to setup properly, but besides that works fine.Published 13 months ago by William Wallace
