Adding an Apple TV 4 to one address active MAC network, what a task.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this.

I helped someone get their 4 ATV connected to a network address mac-compatible. Normally it's pretty easy. WIFI MAC address are on the box or the documentation. Not so in this case. How Apple has it set up I could not just go to "Network' page blah blah" About"page and get the address. I had to actually connect the Ethernet of the ATV in the router and then access the routers GUI to get the Ethernet address and then add this address to the allowed devices and continue with the implementation.

Once I get it set up when connected via Ethernet and "update" the ATV went to find the MAC address of WIFI and even, it was a bit a task, lol. Of course I had to unplug the Ethernet to find, but when it appeared he ended up at the bottom of the page almost not visible and this page won't let me scroll down to exit the faded area, that is. Incredible. At least, I found and could add to the list of devices 'allowed', lol. Maybe there is an easier way, but I'm not hang something like that every day it's like a new learning experience, whenever I'm helping someone hang one of these devices.

I could not use my iPhone for the configuration because I needed to add the address ATV4 to the network wifi enabled devices. Also, I could not use the iPhone to the owner because it fell recently and has connection "issues."

I hung it in the end and work and maybe this can help someone else.

Does anyone else have experience? Is there an easier way?

I'm still learnin'

  • How do you connect a (very) old Apple Airport Express to a new Airport Extreme network?

    For Bob Timmons:

    I have 2 old airport expresses, an old and one even older. The network home fled the old Express (connected to a modem), who abandons the connection several times a week. The older Express seems quite dead. What I want to do is to increase wifi coverage in my house (no wifi in the kitchen or the 3rd floor). I buy an Airport Extreme to manage the network, hoping that it would provide wireless coverage in my blind spots. Then I could use the former, Express work next to my stereo to listen to the music of my iMac.

    However: the new airport utility shows but does not interact with my work Express. If I buy one extreme and put in place, how I can add the Express network. I downloaded 5.6.1 (and launcher) Airport utility, but don't know if I can use 6.3.6 to implement extreme and 5.6.1 Configure Express.

    Any thoughts on this would be welcome.

    Sorry, I forgot to ask: even if the Airport 6.3.6 utility on the iMac refuses to 'see' the Express, would be the iPad method you mentioned work with an older Express?

    The model numbers of my expressed are:

    work: A1084

    a death: A1264

    Well, if A1264 is dead, it is the end of the discussion on this model.

    A1084... assuming it works... could probably be used for AirPlay, but the A1084 calls this AirTunes.

    The A1084 is at least 9 years old, probably older and the average useful life of an AirPort Express is about 3-4 years. It is amazing the A1084 to work at all, but school drop-outs you see now with the Express indicates that it is heading for the South, he may not be around much longer.

    If you want to try using the A1084 Express, it can be implemented and administered using an older version of AirPort 5.x on a Mac or a PC utility. No matter which version of AirPort 6.x...or.. utility. AirPort on an iPhone or iPad utility may NOT be compatible with the A1084 Express.

    If you are considering a new AirPort Extreme... and... or buy at Apple, so you have one day 14 return privilege on the product, if it will not do what you want, you can return it for credit or a return.  The older A1084 expected to collaborate with the new AirPort Extreme if you spot a version 5.x of AirPort on a Mac or a PC utility to configure the product.  But... saying "should work" is not the same thing as saying "work"... then it will be one of those moments where you won't know how well... or even if it will work until you try.

  • Changing the MAC address of the network management
