Airport Express fell over…

Today despite a strong green light the Airport 802.11g network that my Airport Express provides was nowhere to be seen.

I couldn’t see the Airport Express in the Airport Utility either, despite it been connected to my network via cable and I was using my 802.11n network.

In the end I power cycled the Airport Express, twice and this resolved the issue.

This happens now and again with Airport base stations, mainly the older the 802.11g base stations in my experience.

  1. In my experience, it’s as you said an issue of previous 11g Airport Express.

    People said that it could be caused by the overheating of Airport Express. I usually unplug it, let it cool down for a while and then replug it.
    But also the aging of the Airport Express mainboard may cause this problem. Usually when this happens more often, it means the Airport (either Extreme or Express) is at the end of it’s life.

    Oh, by the way, I didn’t see any way to contact you (I missed it? maybe?). So leave a message here about the update of Airport Extreme Base Station USB printer support list (11n version). I just tested the SAMSUNG ML-2240 model, which works perfectly with the printer share function. OS X will find the printer automatically right after you connect it with Airport Extreme. Just remember to install the official OS X driver for the printer. Hope it helps someone in choosing a new printer 🙂
