Airport Extreme Base Station model bricks A1408 after failed firmware update

Shown on Macbook Pro iOS X 10.10.5 airPort utility update the firmware available for both devices on my network 3 June 2016
1 Airport Express 7.6.7

2 version of Extreme Base Station Airport unknown as not reported as I expected not die

After the update successful of the AirPort Express, the update cannot be installed on the Base Station firmware.

After waiting a while, I tried the update again which also failed to install.

Current symptoms:

a. the Base Station is hot indicating energy consumption

b. No. LED light is during the power on self test or during the race

c. not discover measure on the WIFI network

d. is not identified on Ethernet connection without light next to the Ethernet port

e. DC output is 12V on the connection of the power supply works as expected

f. cannot perform factory reset using the reset button on the back of the Base Station

Where other devices working on the same power supply as the Base Station that very sensitive to power outages - these remain functional during the attack of upgrading me to think that he has not lost power while firmware update took place.

My home network is made entirely of Apple devices - should I worry on the application of the firmware updates in the future.

It's embarrassing and I now Cat5 running through my house just to maintain services.

I can't confirm the date of purchase, so I don't know if it is covered by the warranty, however, I'd like to think Apple would cover this.

What I am doing wrong and y at - it a way to recover the device.



We have seen a few posts of users who have had the same problem.

Unfortunately, not a really nothing you can other your advocate Support of Apple.

Good luck and hope that you will have this resolved quickly.

  • The Airport 5.6.1 (10 Windows) utility cannot find Airport Extreme Base Station

    I have the Airport Extreme Base Station (model A1408) model.

    I'm under Apple Airport Utility 5.6.1 on Windows 10.

    10 Windows Firewall is disabled.

    All of my WiFi devices, including my Windows laptop, 10, all work fine on the wireless network, and the light on the base station is green.

    Life seems good... EXCEPT, when I run the utility Apple Airport (version 5.6.1) it says it's "impossible to find wireless Airport". Clicking on Rescan is fixed not. Power by bicycle to the base station doesn't fix it. It worked before, so this is the behavior seems to be somewhat intermittent. Lately, it doesn't quite work. So I can't reconfigure my base station.

    Is this a known issue? Y at - it a known solution?

    First of all, understand that the AirPort for Windows utility has not been updated since Windows 7. It 'works' on later versions of Windows, including Windows 10, but is not designed to work with the new 802.11ac base stations.

    We'll see if this utility is installed correctly on your computer.

    For Windows 8, 8.1, or 10, AirPort for Windows utility will work have two applications listed in the window Apps & features: 1) airport & 2) Hello.

    • Move or delete the file next to the C:\Windows\System32 folder: c:\windows\system32\dnssd.dll (Note: this is the Client Hello library and is required by the utility AirPort.) If this file is missing would be the main reason that you aren't able to find the base station. However, even if it is present, it cannot be properly registered in the Windows registry. In other words, Windows is concerned, there is no.)
    • Download AirPort for Windows install.
    • Run the Setup program by using privileges "Run as administrator". (Note: If you have the option to repair or uninstall, choose the option to uninstall.) To complete the uninstall process. The Hello application should now be missing in Apps & features list.)
    • If you do not dialogue to repair/Uninstall window, then let Setup install AirPort for Windows in its default folder.

    Then, make sure your computer cable or wireless network adapter is configured for IPv6.

    Now, try to access the base station with the utility again.

  • problem w / Airport Extreme base station and modem Netgear broadband

    I just changed to ATT Uverse to Time Warner - internet only.  With Uverse, I was using my Airport Extreme base station to create a wireless network, and it has worked well in this capacity.  When you switch to TWC, the tech got the modem (TWC allows you to buy your own modem, so I bought a Netgear CM600 a recommended model) enabled and works very well, but could not get the Airport base station to talk about her (yellow light blink on the base station).  So, he opted for a TWC wireless modem/router.  Interestingly, I found that I could plug the Airport base station in the TWC modem (without any reconfiguration, just plugged into the WAN port base station to the modem ethernet port, as I had had with Uverse equipment) and voila!  It worked immediately.

    So, I called TWC to retry my Netgear modem.  I have the base station power off, plugged on the ethenet port Netgear, put back under tension and just got the blinking light.  I know that the modem does not work, because my iMac's network to the internet through the base station, for the Netgear, and go outside and I can fine surf in this way.  So it is something in the wireless configuration that must be different between the TWC modem and the Netgear modem.

    Obviously, I'm not an expert at this, basic troubleshooting tips would be appreciated.  The base station functions as a router (I can connect through a port ethernet through it), it is simply not generate a WiFi network for me...

    Thanks for the tips

    So, he opted for a TWC wireless modem/router.  Interestingly, I found that I could plug the Airport base station in the TWC modem (without any reconfiguration, just plugged into the WAN port base station to the modem ethernet port, as I had had with Uverse equipment) and voila!  It worked immediately.

    If your AirPort Extreme has been in its original configuration, it would act as a wireless Internet router. If you connect another router upstream to the extreme, there is work, but you'll have a condition known as: Double NAT. This isn't necessarily bad, but should be avoided if possible. To do this is simply to reconfigure the downstream router (in this case, the extreme) under a bridge. This disable its functions of routing and remove the error condition.

    However, if your extreme base station has been reconfigured as a bridge, if connect you directly to a simple modem, like the Netgear CM600, then this configuration will not work because no device will provide the necessary routing functions.

    It's always a good idea to perform a full power recycle your network hardware during change of equipment. Maybe that's the only thing your missed when you design your own? If you haven't done so already, please give it a try with the CM600 & Extreme combo. After return your results.

  • AirPort Extreme Base Station 4th Gen

    Hi all

    I have an AirPort Extreme Base Station renovated 4th Gen router connected to a modem Arris SB6141 cable.  I had this AEBS for almost 5 years with no problems.  Last night, we had severe weather in the region and almost immediately after a lightning strike extremely close, our internet came out.  Service was also restored and our modem works properly.  However the AEBS is orange with intermittent flashing green.  When I opened the AirPort Utility to diagnose and fix the problem, I was prompted to connect the Ethernet cable to the AEBS.  All cables/cords are connected and secure.  I cycled power on all equipment, tried different cables and even performed a hard reset on the AEBS, and again, it won't recognize the cable Ethernet is plugged.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I guess you have tried another Ethernet cable between the modem and AirPort Extreme... and if this is the case, the storm produced a wave that damaged the port WAN on AirPort Extreme... even if the modem cannot have been hit.

    All you can do is try a Factory default Reset on the AirPort Extreme several times to see if that could help. Good luck!

  • Purchase of 3rd Apple Airport Extreme Base Station

    My current 2 Apple Airport Extreme Base Stations (the two 5th generation) are implemented as shown in the screenshot below.

    My fiber service (80 MB/s) is hard directly on an Apple Airport Extreme Base Station plugged into my home office (via an Ethernet cable that connects from the box of fiber on the outside wall of my house to this AE).

    While AE is hard wired to a 2nd AE in a separate building in my back yard (via an underground conduit of PVC).

    Wired connection that's not a separate Ethernet cable.

    Instead, my provider of fiber spliced in an existing telephone cable that already existed.

    Currently hard connected directly to that 2nd AE in the building separated (via Ethernet cable) are the following:

    My Dell Precision Tower 5810

    My Canon imageCLASS MF6160dw (all-in-one)

    Printer color of my Epson Stylus Pro WF-5190

    (Suite after screenshot)

    I am replacing a very old 30 "TV Sony with a 60" LED Smart TV & want to run an Ethernet cable from the AE 1st in my home office to the living room where will be the TV.

    My intention is to add a Roku at the same place than television.

    In addition, I want to increase my wifi signal in the room.

    I know that the Express is 1/2 the cost of the extreme, but will most likely go to the extreme. - If the extreme will give me faster speeds for my Roku and TV.  In addition, I like to have the additional ports available if I ever sign anything else.

    My fiber Service is 80 MB/s Up & Down, but I regularly receive about 96 +.

    80 MB/s is no longer offered by my supplier of fiber, but I'm grandfathered in.

    The available speeds are now 45 (?) with the speed of 100 Mbps.

    I think I'm really on 100 Mbps service.


    The 2nd AE has been "extended" EI from 1.

    Just as "extend" the 3rd AE?

    For speed best / highest in the living room, the most recent AE should be in the living room next to the TV & the Roku, or he would replace the 1st AE who is in my home office since it is one that is connected directly to the box of fiber on the outside wall of my house?

    Other recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

    The 2nd AE has been "extended" EI from 1.

    Just as "extend" the 3rd AE?

    Yes, either by connecting to the extreme 1... recommended, if possible... .or extreme 2nd... If it is not convenient to connect to the 1st.

    Locate the extreme new... which has a much better arrangement... wireless antenna where it provide the most benefits to nearby wireless devices.

    Otherwise, you might want to consider renaming your airports, because the current device names far exceed the recommended length name a 26 characters max, including spaces. Keep the name short and simple wireless network as well... and to avoid special characters in the name... as an apostrophe, a sign dollar, asterisk, etc..

  • Do a NAS of sorts the Airport Extreme Base Station Extreme (802.11 g)

  • Drives and airport Extreme Base Station to disconnect after connection to the VPN

    At home when I'm on WIFI, everything works fine. At the moment where I connect to the VPN to do office work, the base station will disconnect and accessible either.

    Any help?

    The problem you are experiencing is perhaps due to the type of VPN tunnel that you use to connect to your workplace. There are basically two types: 1) full or partial) 2. Note: The different VPN clients can use other words, but these are usually options when you set up a tunnel.

    When you use a complete tunnel, all traffic between your computer and the VPN of your working server, through the tunnel. No traffic is allowed on your local network, and therefore, all local resources are not available. With a partial tunnel, your computer data traffic, may as well go through the tunnel and also to your local network. One reason to use a partial tunnel, for example, is that you have a local printer, you need to perform printing. You can be connected to this type of tunnel for access to the documents and then, be able to print on this printer... otherwise, with a tunnel of full, you would print to a printer at your place of work.

  • Computer won't see airport extreme base station

    I bought a 6th generation Airport Extreme off eBay. Hooked up to the cable modem, but the computer will not see it. Open Airport utility, but it is not the base station.


    We need a little more information to understand the best way to proceed at this point.

    Can you please provide the number of the brand and model of the modem?

    Who is your Internet service provider?

    Did you check that the Ethernet cable between the modem and AirPort Extreme works correctly by testing it on another connection?

  • Incorrect IP address in AirPort Extreme Base Station

    I use a Vista PC. I have been using the Airport Extreme already. Recently, I try to make some changes when it starts. I accidentally pressed the wrong buttons. When changes are made and he ends by I cannot connect to the wireless device more. As shown on the start page the Airport utility, I find the last digit of the IP address as shown is incorrect, i.e.  This should be or 10.0.2.  How can I did it correct? It's because he just keeps asking my password and when I get it it fails just to connect. Someone help me please.

    You can replace the IPv4 DHCP range on the network > Network Options... page AirPort Utility. To the beach: to 200 (the default), the base station LAN-side address will become:

    Temporarily connect your PC directly to the base via an Ethernet station so that you can access it then with AirPort Utility.

  • How to extend the range of my Airport Extreme Base Station (802. 11 a, c) using a relay of Airport Express (802.11n).  Airport Utility (V635.2) says that this version does not support the relay.  That is what it is?

    How can I extend the range of my Airport Extreme (802. 11 a, c) using an Airport Express (802.11n) point.  Airport (V635.2) utility does not recognize the Express on its screen?  I have to buy equipment?  I'm on a MacPro OS X 10.10.5.  Thank you.

    AirPort utility that ships with OS X 10.10.5 supports base stations as 802.11ac & 802.11n AirPort. It should be able to configure both of your base stations for a scope (wireless connected base stations) or roaming types (base station connected Ethernet) wireless networks.

    When you initially configure the Wan, it helps to keep the two base stations in the same room. Once configured, you can move the base station that extend to the desired location. The important key is that the final positioning of the station that extends the base must be understood that it's to expand in order to maintain sufficient bandwidth to the station remotely for clients from network connected.

  • 1102w does not connect correctly to the Airport Extreme Base station (Time Capsule) (wireless)

    & #3; I've been troubleshooting all day on this problem for my parents, trying to set up printing wireless for them on their new HP 1102W. I am trying to connect the printer wireless to their Airport Time Capsule base station. Using the WPS configuration, the printer is recognized by the base station, but I'm still not able to print wirelessly or via airprint. Enter the web configuration via USB, I see that the printer is grateful the network, but it doesn't have an IP address (it is set to auto/DHCP). Later I tried to connect to a shared of my iphone, wifi connection and everything worked perfectly, so the problem is that somehow the printer will not connect properly to the Airport base station. I tried several resets and restarts the printer and the base station, and the printer and the base of the station has new firmware. I also tried to change the security on the terminal of the default wpa2 personal wireless with wpa/wpa2 personal.

    I'd appreciate comments on this issue because I am quite frustrated now :-)

    Using the tool of the airport, I logged on to the base station and changed the wifi settings, while 2.4 and 5 ghz networks have different names instead of identical names standard. That did the trick, eventually I just configured the printer using wps in a few minutes.

    Thanks for your help.

  • Can I connect a wireless modem to my Airport Extreme base station via ethernet and then connect this Ethernet modem to my TV to pinterest?


    I want to connect my TV to my Airport Extreme via ethernet, so I can run Netflix. Can I just the branch? Can or, if it does not reach, I use an old router as a bridge linking to the Airport via an ethernet cable and connect the router to the TV?

    Thank you

    Can or, if it does not reach, I use an old router as a bridge linking to the Airport via an ethernet cable and connect the router to the TV?

    Yes. It is also possible, but only by using an Ethernet switch instead of a router would be a better solution. The important thing is the total distance of Ethernet between the extreme and the TV. Ethernet is limited to 100 m (328 ft)

  • Photosmart more B209a-m does not connect with apple airport extreme base station

    I use the B209a-m wireless with a netgear router OS6.  I just changed the Netgear to an apple Airport Extreme router.  All my other hardware connected successfully with the new router but the B209a-m says "no connection found."  I know the printer is well within the router.  I have reset the factory settings on the printer.  I've disabled the system and restarted.  None of this has worked.  Suggestions?


    You should not connect it to the airport.

    You must connect the printer with a USB port on your Mac, then run the HP installation wizard.

    From there, you will be guided to provifde the details needed to establish the connection between the printer and Airport Extreme wireless.

    Once the process will be completed and set up the wifi connection you will be guided to unplug the USB.

    You must use a USB cable high speed standard, not longer than 2 m in length.

    The square end must be connected to the USB port located at the back of the printer:

  • Can I connect my Airport Extreme base station via an ethernet cable to a counter of locus?

    Can I use my Airport Express (802.11n Wi - Fi) to connect with an ethernet cable, a locus counter that is used with a solar panel inverter?  Currently I use the hotspot to connect two different Mac computers and an Ipad.  Sungevity, Setup, told me that the signal must go in a direction of my locus meter satellite modem.  Sungevity also told me that if I can hard wire any device (such as a computer) directly from my Airport, I should also be able to do the same with the meter of locus.  Has anyone tried this before?

    Thank you.

    What is the AirPort Express you have?

    As you test, turn off the WiFi on a computer and then connect the computer to the local network <-->port on the AirPort Express using an Ethernet cable to see if the computer can get a good connection Internet in this way?

    If he CAN... and if the people of support for your solar panels have provided the correct information... then the meter will work.

  • Time Capsule connected via Ethernet and put in place as an extension to my Airport Extreme Base Station wireless.  'Disc' Time Machine use?

    If my Time Capsule is connected by ethernet to my Mac, Time Machine uses this connection or the wireless connection?

    It depends on the order of connection of your Mac. If your Mac has been defined first connect using Ethernet if an Ethernet connection is present, then the Mac will save over Ethernet, even if the WiFi is enabled on the Mac.

    However, if your Mac has WiFi to connect first and WiFi is on... then the Mac connects using WiFi, even if an Ethernet connection exists.

    To see the binding command or service so that your Mac is using...

    Open the preferences system (gear on the dock icon)

    Open network

    Click on the gear at the bottom of the list of connection icon

    Click the Set Service command

    If you want to make sure that your Mac will always connect to Ethernet first, even if WiFi is turned on... then you want to make sure that Ethernet appears at the top of the service order.  If this isn't the case, drag it to the top. Click OK, and then click apply at the bottom right of the window.

    Another simple method to ensure that the backups will be produce by Ethernet is simply disable WiFi on Mac and let up to that you unplug the Ethernet cable, date at which you would be back on WiFi
