To do this, fire up the Airport utility on Mac or Windows, find Manual Settings, and under Wireless there should be an option to change the wireless channel.

It will see what channels are free and "pick" the channel with the least interference. once though we were off it was a lot better. Why was Susan treated so unkindly? I can't guarantee these instructions work because I don't have one, but here goes: Open up the Airport Utility, located in the,Mac OSX: Applications -> Utilities folder,Windows: Start -> All Programs

But, when I try to connect using my windows machines, it detects the network, but won't connect. From the Network Connections window delete all Network Bridges.

I recently purchased an Apple Airport Express. And how to boost the signal for my PC users (who are closer to the AEBS than I am). thanks to all who considered helping. maker of things.

The house has an Airport Express.  A Mac and a Dell laptop access internet okay.  My Vista laptop is connected to the network, but no internet access.  I tried turning off It is running Windows 7 and my housemates are running XP though. I'd love to be able to help you in detail, but I don't actually have a Mac (love to get one though :) ). Here is a summary for others:Use 40 bit WEP with a 5-character uppercase password.

All I had to do was take down the security down a few notches to WEP and change the channel to 11 and I'm now trying to figure out how to Apart from that, and running a cable between the machine and the Airport, slapping Justin Long seems like a good idea. So on some occassions (depending on your local environment) the Airport base station sets itself to channel 13 as the ideal channel.

(Haven't tried because the PC has no CD drive) windows-7 windows networking Hey thanks jigmeg!I downloaded bonjour and added the printer through its printer utility.It prints fine.Thanks again. if you only get so much bandwidth say 20 mbps and there are 5 people doing different things that all takes from the speed so it will be slower.

Both laptops were working fine until my previous airport express caught fire...lol.. I code in Python, C#, JavaScript, PowerShell, Java and other languages depending on the job. Please try again now or at a later time. NTFS is apparently not supported on the Airport Extreme though.

I don't even know where to get started anymore.
