Extend my extreme network with another extreme - waiting for internet access

Hello - I have a new generation Airport Extreme (let's call it Extreme1) connected to a Comcast modem and it works very well. The extreme will be the router that the modem has no router function. I'm trying to expand my network to another room with another extreme (let's call it Extreme2). I have a connection cable between two rooms. Extreme1 has an ethernet cable from one of its LAN ports connected on port WAN Extreme2. When I try to create a new network with Extreme2 (in aid of the same name, passwords, etc.) it does not work. He was suspended at the end when he is looking for a connection ("Waiting for internet access")-I did the following things based on what I read here:

  1. Changed IPv6 link local parameters
  2. Tried the whole upward on my Macbook and tried on my iphone
  3. The Wan first and then tried to change the configuration after you done for Extreme2 by creating a network
  4. Tried to create a network with Extreme2 connected directly to the modem
  5. Extreme2 factory reset after every attepmt

And nothing works. Kicker is, I also have a reasonably new airport express and the same thing happens to her as well.

Do I need to adjust some parameters of network that I'm not aware of? Is it possible that my LAN ports are disabled on Extreme2? It is brand new.

Thanks for any help.

Have you used the Apple Setup Assistant?  If you did, it had notified you that the extreme second was being configured "add using Ethernet. The wizard will automatically configure the second airport with the appropriate settings for you.  All you have to do is enter a name of device for the second AirPort Extreme.

Here I'm assuming that you reset the second extreme to parameters by default until you set it up again and that your second Extreme is the current version of the "tower" or that of previous versions "flat or square.

The example below shows an AirPort Express as the device which is the extension of the network, but you will see the name of your network and AirPort Extreme on your configuration screen.

Post back if you need some tips on using the "Wizard" for your configuration.

  • I'm trying to access a wireless network with the password provided for me. I get the following error message

    I'm trying to access a wireless network with the password provided for me. I get the following error message: "the network password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 characters ascii or hexadecimal 10 or 26. "what does this error message mean and how do I address so that I can access the wireless network?

    I use XP Professional with service pack 3. I get this error message every other time I try to log in to a protected wireless network security. I used to not get this message; but, now, it may be impossible, sometimes to call all wireless providers when I might only need for a short period or after hours service opening.

    In addition, it is my computer that requires the network password to be different, not the provider of wireless. A password is given to me who works for other users, but my computer won't let me use it.

    Hey guys,.

    I have a WRT160N and router WRT160N v2. I would like to extend my home network, so that I have more bandwidth throughout different areas in my house.  Should I create one of these routers as Repeater or maybe even a bridge? If so, how would I go all this?

    If I plug in a network cable, evereything works very well.

    I tried all the usual methods to restore the connection, restart the router, update device drivers on the laptop, the removal of the card laptop wireless and re - install. I know that there is nothing wrong with the internet connection of like portable Vista all work fine.

    Hello MrC_TheTeacher,

    Check that the 'Default gateway' parameter (which is the IP number of your router) is set correctly on your machine.

    If you have been using a wired connection, but you can connect wireless remove the cable (ethernet cable) and restart the computer before attempting to use the wireless connection.

    Verify that the wireless on your computer security key is the same as that currently set on your router.

    Check that the wireless security that is on your router is compatible with your computer. The routers are now generally defined on 'WPA2 '.

    I hope this will help.

  • Network of the island so no internet access remove a yellow exclamation point in the network icon in the taskbar.

    Hi, I have 10 windows 7 Enterprise workstations connected to a Windows 2008 domain and there is no internet connectivity (this is normal) but each workstation network icon displays an exclamation point yellow because she had not any internet connection. Isn't there anyway other than hide the icon which I don't want to get the yellow exclamation point to appear.

    Thanks Simon.

    I finally found the answer. If you are running Windows server 2008 R2 edition, then you can find this policy in the strategy of Group Editor and it will be effective for your Windows 7 machines. If this is not the case, as I am on Windows server 2008 standard and then, is not an option within the Server Group Policy Editor must therefore be as a change in local policy on the workstations.

    It is found on the local computer by running gpedit.msc and looking: -.

    Local computer policy,

    Administrative templates,


    Network connections,

    Does not display the network icon "local access only".

    Select this option enabled.

    Closing of session and immediately and this will make the yellow exclamation point icon disapear.

    Whenever I come back from a stay in a motel, there are problems to be connected again to the House.  This time, I show that connected to the network wireless 2, but no. Internet access connection.  Yesterday, I figured it out and got things, but today it happened again and I don't get it.  See network properties properly, including appropriate security key.  When I ran Win 7 Network Diagnostics, he returned that I didn't have a valid IP address.  I have reset the router and even unplugged for a minute.  All this time, the ' currently logged on: "network in the sys bar icon showed the Summit he was trying to connect my network name to the internet (downstairs, the network showed as connected, probably by a router).  Another thing I did was to support IP services and disable and stop, then after restart it a few minutes.  Nothing.

    But wait!  As I finished typing the last sentence, about an hour after I started the laptop, the first time, I opened center network & sharing once more and suddenly between the name of my computer and the Internet has shown the name of the network, instead of "no internet access."

    So, what could be going on here?  (1) why should he take 50 minutes to make the connection?  (2) why do I have problems every time after the use of wireless network from a motel?  Thank you

    Update: resolved for now.  I started using the safe mode with networking, which required the implementation of msconfig as F8 does not work.  Which required a repair of the system, and then restore it, and finally I was able to follow the instructions at http://forums.techguy.org/networking/950031-cant-get-valid-ip-address.html.  Solved.
