Aiport Express c. 6.3 keeps 'burping' (stall)

I have an 'old' Express AP c. 6.3 and I'm running OS X on a MacMini end of 2012 10.11.3.  Most likely coinciding with loading 10.11.3 (but I do not remember) audio streaming on this unit keeps dropping out.  I just traded my 'most recent' AP Express v 7.6.4 and it works very well.  I just loaded the utility AP on my PC since utility AP (v 6.3.6) on my Mini ping is no longer the AP Express 6.3 v.  But on the PC, I could 'see' the 'old' Express and rename it even so I now can I follow the two places in the House... and the Express 6.3 v is always stall.  I thought only downloaded a firmware update...?

I've been using Airfoil (now in 4.9.2) to great success but this an 'old' Express seems to be problems with the maintenance of network connectivity.

It could just be dying (seems hard to believe) or is there a cure?  OR... should I get out the dreaded deployed trombone and lobotomize the device so I can start over?


Version 6.3 of the AirPort Express is old. Apple has abandoned this model in 2007 so even if you bought the product when it has been be eliminated, it is at least 9 years and over 10-12 years.

The average useful life of an AirPort Express is about 5 years old at best, so pat yourself on the back for your incredibly good luck with the device on this point.

Now that it's started to give up... it will fail quickly. But before this, the drops will happen more often.

Now, it's time to reward yourself with a new AirPort Express Terminal. With your luck, it could last 20 years.

  • Trying to connect a computer to the lan port Aiport Express "auto assigned IP address"

    I am trying to connect a computer to the lan on my Airport Express port. In preferences, it says "status: connected, Ethernet has an assigned IP address and won't be able to connect to the internet." Any suggestions?

    An "auto assigned" IP address indicates that your computer could not find or negotiate with a DHCP server to obtain an IP address appropriate for network access.

    It should be more on your network to provide assistance if you need it. For example, is the terminal of AirPort Express the only router in the current configuration of your network? What exact model do? What is the brand and model of your modem Internet?

  • my airport express does not extend to my network

    Hello to you all guru out there...

    I 5g internet and comes with the router and signal is fantastic in the main lounge, but it is a large apartment and once I get my room the signal decreases considerably.

    I bought an Airport Express and it connects to the wifi perfectly, green light and everything, but it does not extend my wifi network...

    Do I need to have another Aiport Express hooked up to the main router, then extend the Airport Express wifi or should I get an Airport Extreme?

    Any advice or help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Do I need to have another Aiport Express hooked up to the main router, then extend the Airport Express wifi

    Yes, the "main" AirPort Express should be connected to your router using a wired Ethernet cable connection, permanently. This Express will be set to "create a wireless network.

    Other Express your distance can then be configured to "extend a wireless network.  In its current form, your existing Express is configured to "join a wireless network.  It will work for AirPlay like that, or allow you to connect a supported USB printer, but it cannot extend a network provided by a third-party router wireless.

    Regarding matching them things, it would make sense to use two airport expresses, or the two extremes of the airport.  The extreme might be your "primary" router if you wanted to, but the Express would not be able to expand the capacity of faster speed to the extreme.

  • Cannot complete the installation express airport using iOS.

    I go to Wi - Fi and find the aiport express under the heading "set up the new airport base station. I can access the quick screen to create my new network. Put in my info and it says creating this Airport Express to create a network. It's when things go wrong.

    It seems stuck "to search the new network for a long time. Then he said: an unexpected error has occurred, try again. At this point it I run the Setup again, that the error occurs because I'm trying to connect to the EA. I have to reset the AE to get another shot at the implementation of the new network.

    The modem is showing everything is fine. I bought the AE because he said that I could set up through my iPhone. It's very frustrating.

    Normally, the installation on the iPhone and iPad software works well and is in fact more reliable software installation on a Mac, it is therefore possible that you have a faulty AirPort Express... just as I did a few months ago.

    However, if you want to try the installation a few times however, we can do it. We assume that you have verified that you have a good Ethernet cable connecting the modem and the AirPort Express, correct?

    Can you provide the number of brand and model of the modem you are trying to use with the AirPort Express?

  • Have changed my router but Airport Express no longer works.  How can I connect it?

    Have changed my router but Airport Express linking is no longer.  How can I connect it to the new router?

    The Express has been programmed to keep in memory the settings needed to connect to your 'old' router... What is more there... so the Express is lost and knows not how to find his way.

    The solution is to reset the AirPort Express Terminal at its new, out of box factory settings, so it can be mounted again do not forget to connect to your new router.

    To do this...

    Turning off the AirPort Express for a minute or two

    Hold the reset button the first Express... and keep holding it while you simultaneously reconnecting the power cord the AirPort Express

    After that the amber light was clignoter blink quickly for 5 to 6 seconds, release the reset button

    Allow a minute for the Express start slow, flashing amber light status

    Now, the Express is back in its new factory settings, then you a game it upwards again to connect to your new router... just like you put in place to connect with your old router.

  • Download Outlook Express Server problem

    When I set up my Outlook Express account, I clicked "keep a copy of messages on the server. My hard drive crashed. I reinstalled my OS and implemented the OE account again.  There were about 1,000 emails saved on the server, but only about 100 downloaded when I reset OE. How can I download the remaining emails on my account?  It's a story of  Thank you.

    Make sure you that check for messages every X minutes is not checked immediately. If it does not end download before the start of a new check, the download will never end. You can save later.

    Now, move the message that download a user created folder. Find the location of the message store, close OE and delete the Pop3uidl.dbx file,.

    Tools | Accounts | Mail | Properties | Advanced. Uncheck: Leave a copy of messages on the server. Then, remove the Pop3uidl.dbx file.

    Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.

    In Windows XP, Win2K & Win2K3 the OE user files (DBX and WAB) are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder Options icon | Opinion, or in Windows Explorer. Tools | Folder options | View.

    With OE closed, find the Pop3uidl.dbx file and delete it.  A new one will be created automatically when you open OE and I hope that all messages will be downloaded.

    Slightly OT:

    Do not archive mail in the receipt or sent items box. Create your own user-defined folders and move messages you want to put in them. Empty the deleted items folder daily. Although the dbx files have a theoretical capacity of 2 GB, I recommend all a 300 MB max for less risk of corruption.

    Information on the maximum size of the .dbx files that are used by Outlook Express:

    After you're done, followed by compacting your folders manually while working * off * and do it often.

    Click Outlook Express at the top of the the folder tree so no folders are open. Then: File | Work offline (or double-click on work online in the status bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until the compacting is completed.

    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the processors and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs and account setting changes. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see:

    And backup often.

  • Outlook express Compact view

    I have a lot of emails in Windows XP Outlook Express I want to keep it there.  How to stop this message about compacting my files?  I do not wish to do so and to stop the message.

    If you are talking about a message that says:

    To free up disk space, Outlook Express can compact messages. This can take up to a few minutes.

    Automatic compaction of Outlook Express files was introduced in Service Pack 2.

    If you are using Windows XP, there is a registry value called:

    Compact Check Count

    It is located in the registry for a key that looks like this:

    \Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0 HKCU\Identities\ {51909A0B-63EE-4EB3-A9A2-7CFA23C1ADCF}

    Whenever you leave OE (not when you open it), the value of the counter increases by an increment.  When the value of the counter gets to 101, the next time you close OE asked you to compress messages.

    There are two things that will increase the value of the counter.

    Exit from Outlook Express will increase the value of the counter.

    If you have Windows Desktop Search installed, it will increase the counter every time it turns that is usually at each reboot.  If you use Outlook Express, and Windows Desktop Search, the counter will be increased more frequently — whenever you close Outlook Express and whenever Windows Desktop Search launches when you restart.

    Even if you are not using Outlook Express and only using Windows Desktop Search, which will further increase the count, so when the counter gets to 100, Windows Desktop Search will prompt you to compress messages during the next reboot.  This is because Windows Desktop Search is configured by default to search for the Outlook Express database if you are using Outlook Express or not.

    No matter how the counter is increased, if you use at least one of these two, eventually you will see this message appear sooner or later.  But you can stop it when you understand.

    You can compress data when prompted (which resets the counter to 0).

    You can change the registry and reset the counter to hand to buy some time until you see the message again.

    If you do not use Outlook Express and only using Windows Desktop Search you can tell Windows Desktop Search to never watch the Outlook Express database (or uninstall the Windows Desktop Search if you do not use).

    Following the best practices for using Outlook Express will prevent you from seeing the message in the first place.  If you see the message that you might want to reconsider how you use Outlook Express and the risks of data store corruption of occasional or misuse (risk behaviours).

    Using Outlook Express or Windows Desktop Search at the same time most people are satisfied to just remove the indexing Option in Windows Desktop Search and keep the meter that is built into Outlook Express so that they will remind to compact the database from time to time.  If you had to sort of do not maintain your Outlook Express files, it would be risky for your messages.

    To remove the Option of Windows Desktop Search index to the database of Outlook Express follow these steps:

    Click Start, settings, Control Panel, Indexing Options, change, clear the box Outlook Express, OK, OK, to save the settings and reboot the system so that the changes will be effective.

    Do, or do not. There is no test.

  • Best wireless network installation with the switch TP-Link

    Hi all

    Few question numpty maybe, but what follows... We just moved to a new (larger) home with thick walls and I want to set up a new wireless network.

    The current installation is:

    Fiber cable entering the House in the basement and connected the modem to the service provider that provides 150 mb internet. I changed the capacity wireless on the ISP's modem and connecting an airport extreme (2014 model) via the LAN to the modem. The extreme is in the office but on the 3rd floor is having connection problems than you can imagine. All rooms have access points CAT5e who all meet in the basement. I have two spare Aiport express and two Apple TV that I would use. Also I bought a TP-LINK 1000mbps (16 channels) Network Switch.

    Could someone please tell how the best set-up of my home network. For example, the Airport Express to the 3rd floor connected to the switch (wired) network or to an extreme in the Office? Apple TV also connected to the network switch?

    I would like to end up with a solid wireless network that passes without problem from extreme to Express necessary each time you walk and you want to use an Apple TV for television on the ground floor and one in our room.

    Many thanks and apologies once more for this very basic question... I have expanded my front (extreme Express) wireless network but just don't know how best to use the switch.

    Thank you

    The simplest up set... which is almost always the best game in place... would be to connect the switch 16 ports to the modem/router and then connect devices to the switch. In other words, if your modem/router has 16 + Ethernet ports, the simplest network configuration would be to plug as many devices as possible directly to the modem/router.

    Other variants are possible, for example, the network might look like this:

    Internet > Modem/Router > AirPort Extreme > switch > devices... or, you can connect certain devices to ports Ethernet on the AirPort Extreme and some to the ports on the switch.  One thing to keep in mind however... If there is a problem... Troubleshooting may not be easy since it will be difficult to know where the problem actually lies.  Much easier to all have, or of possible devices, connect to the switch.

    Unfortunately, the AirPort Express devices will be of real bottlenecks on your network.  These devices are notoriously slow as well as wireless, and even if they work well, the speed will be does not exceed 100 Mbps... since it's the speed of the port to the AirPort Express.  In fact, I expect each Express to provide a wireless signal in the range of 50-60 Mbps.

    Another thing to keep in mind of the wireless network is that Macs will usually a good work of tilting automatically to the point of wireless to the other as moving from one place to the other in the House... but the iPhones, iPads, PCs, and other mobile devices will do that very well... If they do at all.

    So with these devices, you will need to get used to temporarily disable the WiFi on the device and the device when you move in one region to the other, and then turn WiFi on must generally then pick up the signal from a nearby wireless access point.

  • Airport network - difficulty to its replacement by a component of roaming

    I have a roaming (ethernet) Airport network.

    Cables/modems (UBEE of TW) - Airport Extreme - out ports WAN on Time Capsule and Airport Express (also connected directly to the radio). Configuration, as far as I know, conforms to Wi - Fi base stations: how to install and configure AirPort Express for AirPlay and iTunes - Apple support>

    The Airport express was old and keep people with their streaming music dropped. So I had a new Terminal Airport Express 802.11n.

    I can add it to the network - but as soon as I do, the internet connection goes down. When I remove it, the internet connection is up.

    I can't understand what could be the problem; the old Airport Express does not cause this problem with the internet connection.

    I'm under El Capitan.


    This type of problem occurs when the Express is first set up to connect to the network using Wireless... .and then the Ethernet connection is applied. In other words, the Express waiting for a wireless connection but it also gets an Ethernet connection... and this creates a massive feedback loop that effectively blocks the network.

    Please, try the following:

    Turn on the Express for a minute or two

    Maintain in the reset on the back of the Express button until you see the yellow light starts to Flash quickly, hold a few seconds when it occurs, and then release the reset button. Give the Express a full minute to restart again.

    Make sure that Ethernet network cable is connected to the "O" on the Express WAN port

    Click the WiFi icon at the top of the screen of the Mac, and then click directly on the AirPort Express Terminal to start the configuration "Wizard". The first screen that appears resembles the illustration below, except that you will see your devices and the network name is displayed.

    Type a short and simple name that you want to use for the Express

    Click next

    Now, look at the following screen to confirm that the Express is set up to extend using Ethernet. It is the confirmation that the Express will be configured correctly.

    When you see the message Setup is complete, click done.  And you're done.
