I am trying to set up an Airtunes network using an Airport Extreme and three Airport Expresses connected together via ethernet (CAT5 cable). At each Airport Express there will be a speaker setup. I don't need/want internet connectivity on the network, but not sure if it is required for setup or not. I have made this work over wifi, using the Expresses to extend the network, but struggling to get this to work over ethernet. I would be verry grateful of a step-by-step method to setting this up! I am also looking to set up 6 airport expresses to do the same thing in another location. Thanks.
I live in a wide house, so I have an Airport extreme, an Airport express and a TimeCapsule setting up a free roaming network. I used to have the Airport Express working as a master central router for the rest of the network. Airplay was a little buggy and wifi gaming is not the best option out in the market.
But now I changed my ISP, and it provided me (free of charge) with a ZTE ZXDSL 9311WII routed modem, with 4 ethernet ports, so I decided to boost the performance of my network.
Bought over 300ft of LAN cable, a bunch of cable connectors, crimping tools and even wall connectors... So I wired every AirPort directly to the ZTE, and now I have all airports in bridge mode. The problem that emerged is that a computer connected to one airport can not see anymore the computer in another airport.
This happens if the computer is connected via wifi also, he can only see the ones connected to the same airport. Also, airport admin utility lost the capability of seeing all the airports connected and turned on - and now can only see only the one that the computer is directly connected to.
How do I solve this visibility issue? I am SURE ZTE is not blocking connections because if I plug in computers directly to ZTE, they can see each other just as they should. I already went trough all airport possible configurations, googled for the whole day, and found nothing about this configuration being possible or not. The first thing I would suggest is to get an ethernet switch and place it between the ZTE router and the rest of the network. Route all the Airport devices into the switch.
Then they should all see each other. These cost $18-$25. I have two Airport Extreme Base Stations, at opposite ends of my house. I set the one connected to a DSL modem to be the DHCP server, and create Airport wireless networks. I select the channels manually, not automatic. The second base station is connected to the first by ethernet cable - not wirelessly. It is set to bridge mode, but also to create wireless networks. I give the networks the same, identical names, but manually select different channels than the first base station.
This lets any WiFi device to connect to either server without any conflicts that I have noticed. You may wish to turn off the DHCP server on the ZTE router and use one of the Airport base stations to provide that service for your network. An alternative to this nice answer would be to put the ZTE in bridge mode and let the first Airport device run the network. The rest of the airport can be set up to extend the network and will do the right thing when they see they have ethernet connections from their WAN port to the LAN port of the main Airport.
Depending on your main Airport, the switch might not be needed. – Apr 16 '14 at 20:29 Apple's free roaming network with their AirPort and Time Capsule routers works great... as long as you're using one of their devices as the master DHCP server and link to the DSL modem. Once you switch from "Extend a network" into "Bridge" mode, you lose all ability to free roam. At both my parent's home and my office I have the DLS modem (the ZTE ZXDSL in your case), a switch (can be built into the modem) and various AirPorts and/or Time Capsules.
Turn off all the Apple routers except one and start with that one. Configure it to be the main link and the DHCP server. Make sure it talks to the internet and does everything you want. Next, configure the next Apple wireless router. Sometimes you need to reset them back to baseline configuration and then begin from there. As it comes up, use the wizard to select "Extend a network" and follow the prompts to input the info for your network.
Make sure everything works to connect to the internet with both Apple routers. Repeat the procedure with the third. Having the AirPorts hard-wired together provides the best infrastructure between the access points.
Enjoy your free roaming.
best way to set up multiple airport express on one network - Setting up multiple AirPort Express units…
Tutorial for configuring an Apple AirPort Express as an access point of an existing network: This tutorial is for you if: • you have just bought an AirPort Express and want to configure it • you have an existing newtwork (i.e.: router, modem/router which takes care of DHCP and NAT already) This tutorial is not for you if: • you want to use the AirPort Express as a router / DHCP / NAT server • you want to connect the AirPort Express directly to an ADSL or a cable modem • you want to use the AirPort Express as a wireless extender for an existing wifi network Step by step: Will it work if the primary router is a belgacom bbox2?
The box is configured in full routing (TV streams and internet are routed on the same LAN using CPL, tv decoder gets address from DHCP I would like to just use the aiport as a wifi access point connected on the CPL (and disconnect the poor wifi of the bbox2). Hello, I have Brutele (VOO) cable modem connected to Airport express with an ethernet cable.
Airport express is also connected to HIFI for airplay. I have a second Airport express to extend the WIFI to the bed room and study. I will end my cable subscription and have Belgacom (Proximus) from November. The telephone line is not near the TV so I will have my Belgacom modem somewhere in the living. I have bought TP-Link TL-PA4015PKIT for establishing a network connection between the Belgacom modem and the digital TV receiver.
My question is on the internet side. I do not want to move my Airport express. What can be the possibilities? Can I use the WIFI of the Belgacom modem and extend it with Airport express? or should I buy TP-Link socket which has two ethernet outputs to connect one to the digital receiver and the other one to the Airport express?
Thanks, I think the best solution remains the old but yet good ethernet cable. If not possible, the TP-link is the “less bad” alternative. Extending over wifi using bbox is not a solution which will make you happy …. the wifi of the bbox will be too slow and unstable. On my side, the two AirPorts are connected on a gigabit switch, which is connected to the bbox by RJ45….
It allow the wifi not to be shown down by a slower peace of network. I have following scenario: my Telenet is connected to a Smoothwall firewall (Desktop PC with a Linux distro). It’s the Smoothwall that takes care of the internal DNS, DHCP,… I have been using Linksys routers as access points (not using the WAN but the LAN port) makes them work as an AP (undocumented but works).
However, I’d like to use proper AP’s to expand my network wirelessly. I’d like to use the Airport Express (AE) since I already have a TimeCapsule and like to have the option to be able to use this in combination of the Airport Express’s if my Smoothwall would ever fail. So for now, in this scenario, disregard the TimeCapsule as it is not being used for any active network component on my network. Also bear in mind that besides the AE’s, the other network components are non Apple devices (Smoothwall,…) So my plan would be to implement multiple AE’s on my existing wired network (they will all be wired connected, not wirelessly).
Most of the online tutorials only cover adding 1 AE while I want to add 2 or more to the existing network. Goal is to cover the full area, getting rid of blind spots. My questions: – Will implementing multiple AE’s allow me to have roaming: walking from one AE’s range into another AE’s range without loosing connectivity (same IP, etc) ?
Eg. Practical use would be looking at Yelo TV on your iPad downstairs and walking to the first floor with it while not interrupting the streaming video on the iPad. – The SSID used: should I use the same SSID for all of them or should the SSID’s be different (eg.
“Ground Floor”, “First Floor”,…). I would like to have only one SSID in the house but not sure whether this is feasible. – What about the channels: when routers are set on auto selection and coincidently the router of your neighbor has the same channel set, they interfere with each other.
I know of apartment buildings were all tenants had their channel selection on auto. One tenants caused the router of the next one to start looking for another channel which caused the channel of a third tenant to be renegotiated and so on. At the end every ones router was searching for a new channel every so many minutes, causing an unstable wireless network for all of them.
In my scenario, I’m not referring to my neighbors (I can see their channel selection and am 5 digits away from them). I’m wondering whether my AE’s would cause a re-selection of another channel if they see each other. If so, I would end up with the same situation as the apartment building, but in my own house. I personally think they should all be fixed (not auto) on the same channel (while not the same as the neighbors are using), but not sure… Thanks for your inside !
As soon as the IP is provided by the DHCP service and has nothing to see with access points, connecting through different access points shouldn’t change the IP address of your device.
But even if I’m not 100% sure, I’m afraid your device won’t be able to jump from an access point to another without connexion is lost. For roaming you need specialised devices, neither AE nor any of the normal devices you buy are able to provide this. In practice you won’t notice the deconnection (if you use the same SSID) Yes, using same SSID gives you a bit of that roaming-feel. Otherwise you’ll stay on “groundfloor” with lousy reception until it disappears and connects to “first floor”.
Fix your channels yourself, auto is never a good idea especially with multiple wireless access points from yourself and your neighbours. Thanks for the clear instructions. I have implemented this, but for me, the system would not work using the WAN port. I had to change to the LAN port after configuration.
It’s now distributing a great signal, but I’m not convinced it’s optimal, and I’d love to know why it didn’t succeed when I used the WAN port (which you clearly identified above). Perfect. Worked brilliantly. My first Ethernet cable was dodgy, but after I switched that out, and did the setup directly connected to the router, I was able to relocate the Express unit across the room via my Solwise home-wiring connectors, hooked it into my trusty 30-year-old Technics receiver, and, damn, does that sound good!
:) Cheers! I just bought an airport express(AE), what I want to do is I had a LAN port in my office where my PC was connected. There is 1 available LAN port. Wifi password in the office is not given to every employees.
So is it possible to use AE by taking internet from that extra port so I can connect my iphone to AE? I have tried airport utility showed both internet and airport express is green but still I cannot browse the net. I am surprise because the AE flash status is also green.
Anything I missed on the set-up configuration? I have tried both bridge mode, DHCP and NAT, and DHCP though I am not really sure what these things means. I am just an average finance staff without knowledge in net admin. Do I need to have the password given by our ISP to our company? Or is it possible that I can just connect the cable from LAN port to AE without anything from our IT side.
Because I noticed if I bring my laptop I can easily connect through that extra port using a cable. As I can read, you should be able to use the extra port to connect your airport express and it gets connected to the network and lets you connect your iPhone through. To do so, you should 100% follow this tutorial. But, the IT can have setup a wide lot of rules to your network port that could make it’s not possible to have your AE not working correctly!
You should perhaps ask IT responsible of the network if there is any rule to forbid you to have your own wireless access point; but also take care not to be fired out because what you are trying to do is mainly bringing in a security breach into your company network !! Personally, I’d ask for the wifi password of the company and use it on the iPhone, it would cost you a box of chocolate for the IT person and avoid you have to look for a new job ;-) I’m happy to see the second part in admin’s answer, because it is something to mention, next to the troubleshooting… I understand the reason why ‘Bong’ wants to connect the AE.
However, connecting a rogue AP on a corporate network is basically a NO GO. If the company wants to foresee internet access for guests/visitors (because that is what you would be needing), they usually have a special setup where all traffic is separated from the corporate traffic in a dedicated VLAN.
They do that to make sure that whatever happens over that connection can not be held against them. These setups are typically at companies where you have vendors or suppliers coming in to demonstrate something for which they need a connection to the internet.
Or companies that have freelancers/consultants who come on-site and work for them during a fixed period, using their own IT equipment. On another note: if they have a good existing wireless setup in your office, they will detect your AE as a rogue AP in no time. So it’s not a matter of IF but rather WHEN they will come over and ask you about it.
Even if you would hide it under a shoe box ;o) (Via MAC address, switch port, outlet patching scheme, outlets layout in building) At my company, it was possible to connect your iPhone to the corporate network if the employee agreed that the iPhone was managed by the IT department. Agreeing to the latter would also allow the employee to install the corporate mailbox on the phone which was an additional benefit.
In meeting rooms, we had only WiFi connectivity for the corporate employees and next to a ‘red’ network cable on the desk, wireless internet for visitors/guests for whoever was visiting and in need of internet connectivity. That also meant that a visitor was unable to plug in a non-corporate device on the corporate network… Just to give you an idea of what is behind the reason why you should not plug in your own AP on your company’s network… Thanks guys for the reply.
I just finally decided not to connect my AP at the office and just increase my mobile data subscription instead. Now I replaced my Linksys E900 home router with the AP and was very happy with its ease of set-up though I cannot notice any significant speed difference as compared to E900. Thanks for the clear instructions. I just got an AE to replace an old Linksys WAP and these instructions made it easy and saved me a headache.
I would have thought I was extending the network not create a new one and would have been debugging this.
But your comments made it crystal clear. Thanks again – I configured my Airport Express exactly as this tutorial says. My Apple TV recognizes the Network, ie. the network shows on the TV screen but the ATV does not play anything.
When I click on Netflix I get “Netflix is unavailable. Try later.” The same with Hulu.on the NBC app it will play previews, but just buffers until the show should start, then says “An error has occurred.” Can you help!?!?
I have an airport extreme and 2 airport expresses that extend the network . In the basement . Off the modem I attached another Airport express and connected the modem port directly in the WAN port.
1last airport express (yes alot he) need this AP to stream music. But the signal is not strong enough or the device like a tablet must be near the airport express extending the new AP, from the airport at the modem. I thought wiring between the airport at the modem, and the airport that extends would make it better. But that means connecting a LAN ethernet port from a base Aiport to aother LAn airport express.
This went wrong, as they got in conflict I guess. My 15meter purchase of ethernet cable for nothing ? Those LAN ports should serve certain causes no. Yes, attaching a computer,… But instead of airport expresses extending wireless , why not wired.
I hope you could follow. The basement airport created a separate network than the one on the Extreme. Any ideas how I can make use of the cable, to enhance streaming ?
Following these basic instructions I have just finished configuring and installing 35 Airport Expresses throughout our elementary school. We have an existing wireless network that is very inadequate and doesn’t reach many of the rooms, most of which have thick concrete walls.
All of our rooms have adequate gigabit ethernet ports, however, so it was easy to connect an Airport Express via ethernet and using industrial strength velcro mount it to a ceiling tile frame. The beauty of Airports is the easy configuration; once you have one wireless access point configured, simply export the configuration.
Each successive Airport needs to be configured first, before importing the saved configuration, but choosing the simplest setup and restarting the Airport takes only 3-4 minutes.
Once restarted simply import the saved configuration and change the base station name and update a second time. Probably less than 5-6 minutes spent on each, although the firmware needed to be updated on many of them, which also didn’t take too long. I named the first Airport XP-01, then XP-02, 03 and so on. One thing to note: do not choose to enable a guest network, it won’t work with the Airports in bridge mode.
Also, you may want to experiment with the radio channels. My theory is that Airports in adjacent rooms might work better set to different radio channels, but I’ve also read that they should all be on the same channel.
Not sure about that. My 35 Airport Expresses will be distributed in 4-5 different areas, each area pretty far from the next so I may use different channels in each area and test the results.
One last thing to note is, so far the 5GHz mode is far superior when tested, although many devices in out building (mainly old laptops) can’t take advantage of it. Thanks to all who have contributed to this! If you’re ever on Cape Cod do let me know. Being a public school district we have budgetary constraints. That said, our middle school invested over $40K on Aerohive WAPs a few months ago, at $670 each. I figured at almost 1/10th the price ($79 each) it might be worth trying the Airports instead, as I have been using them at home and in another business for many years.
I bought an Express and an Extreme to try them out and wound up buying 35 more Expresses and 5 more Extremes. My only possible regret is perhaps I should have bought more Extremes and fewer Expresses, but I think the Expresses are working out well enough. So far so good. I’ll keep you posted if any problems arise when we get into heavier use during testing when a lot of students are connected at the same time. I have followed your instructions but I get a problem.
My devices sometimes don’t accept the password. So when I have my original AExtreme everyting is fine. But when I connect my other Airport (extreme) some of my iPhones and Macbooks say that he password is invalid. Even when I’m close to and connecting to the original AExtreme. Is it some kind of IP conflict? Any ideas? so I thought I had an easy problem but can’t get solution to work.
Wanted to make my airport express a wireless access point by connecting a long ethernet cable to the wireless router (Airport extreme). When I hook it up though the express just blinks orange. Is there some setting I need to change on the Extreme — and if so, how do I change it? And if i get the WAP working would it be same password as the Extreme or would I set the password separately?
Connecting to an Existing Wireless Network You can use the AirPort Express Assistant to join an existing wireless network. When you connect your AirPort Express to your home stereo, computers on your wireless network can use AirTunes to play music on the stereo from iTunes.

The AirPort Express Software Can’t Detect the Proper AirPort Hardware Make sure that the computer you are using has an AirPort Card or an AirPort Extreme Card installed.
If you recently installed the card, shut down your computer and make sure the card is properly installed. Make sure that the AirPort antenna is securely connected to the card (you should hear a click when the antenna is connected securely). Make sure that the other end of the card is firmly inserted into the connector in the AirPort Card slot. If you are using a computer with Windows 2000 or Windows XP, make sure the wireless card or adapter is installed correctly.
See the documentation that came with your computer to check the connection. You Can’t Play Music on Your Stereo From iTunes Make sure your AirPort Express is plugged in to a power outlet, is in range of your computer, and that you have connected the appropriate cables.
You may need to join the AirPort Express network. Make sure to choose your AirPort Express from the speakers pop-upmenu in iTunes. Make sure you are using iTunes 4.6 or later. You Can't Hear Music Playing If music is playing (the progress bar at the top of the iTunes window is moving) but you can't hear anything, check the following: • If you're trying to play music through speakers connected to an AirPort Express, and you've selected the “Disable iTunes volume control for remote speakers” checkbox in the Audio pane of iTunes Preferences, make sure your remote speakers are selected in the pop-upmenu at the bottom of the iTunes window and the volume control on the remote speakers isn't turned down.
You Forgot Your Network or AirPort Express Password You can clear the AirPort network or AirPort Express password by resetting AirPort Express.
Follow these steps: 1 Use the end of a straightened paper clip to press and hold the reset button for one second. 2 Select your AirPort network. • On a Macintosh, use the AirPort status menu in the menu bar to select the network created by AirPort Express (the network name does not change). • On a computer using Windows 2000 or Windows XP, hold the pointer over the wireless connection icon until you see your AirPort Network Name (SSID), and choose it from the list if there are multiple networks available.
3 Open AirPort Admin Utility (in Applications/Utilities on a Macintosh, and in Start > All Programs > AirPort on a computer using Windows XP or Windows 2000). 4 Select your AirPort Express and click Configure. 5 In the dialog that appears, make the following changes: • Reset the AirPort Express password.
• Turn encryption on to activate password protection for your AirPort network. If you turn on encryption, enter a new password for your AirPort network. 6 Click OK. AirPort Express restarts to load the new settings. Your AirPort Express Isn’t Responding Try unplugging it and plugging it back in to a power outlet. If your AirPort Express stops responding completely, you may need to reset it to the factory default settings. This erases all of the settings you’ve made and resets them to the settings that came with the AirPort Express.
Your AirPort Express Status Light Flashes Amber The Ethernet cable may not be connected properly, AirPort Express may be out of range of an AirPort network, or there may be a problem with your Internet service provider. If you are connected to the Internet with a DSL or cable modem, the modem may have lost its connection to the network or the Internet. Even if the modem seems to be working properly, try disconnecting the modem from its power supply, waiting a few seconds, and then reconnecting it.
Make sure AirPort Express is connected directly to the modem via Ethernet before reconnecting power to the modem. If your AirPort Express is set up in a WDS, the WDS link may be interrupted. Note: If AirPort Express is set up as a wireless client and the network it's joining is protected by an access control list (ACL), AirPort Express must be in the ACL to connect to the network. To return AirPort Express to the factory settings: n Use the end of a straightened paper clip to press and hold the reset button for ten seconds.
AirPort Express restarts with the following settings: • AirPort Express receives its IP address using DHCP. • The network name reverts to Apple Network XXXXXX (where X is a letter or number).
• The AirPort Express password returns to public. If you used AirPort Admin Utility to create profiles for your AirPort Express, they are preserved when you reset your AirPort Express.
If you need to return your AirPort Express to the factory settings and remove any profiles you have set up: 1 Unplug AirPort Express. 2 Use the end of a straightened paper clip to hold the reset button while you plug in AirPort Express.
Your Printer Isn’t Responding If you connected a printer to the USB port on AirPort Express and the computers on the AirPort network can’t print, try doing the following: 1 Make sure the printer is plugged in and turned on. 2 Make sure the cables are securely connected to the printer and to the AirPort Express USB port. 3 Make sure the printer is selected in the Printer List on client computers. To do this on a Macintosh using Mac OS X v10.3 or later: • Open Printer Setup Utility, located in Applications/Utilities.
• If the printer is not in the list, click Add. • Choose Rendezvous from the pop-upmenu. • Select the printer and click Add. To select your printer on a computer using Windows XP or Windows 2000: • Open “Printers and Faxes” from the Start menu.
• Select the printer. If the printer is not in the list, click Add Printer and then follow the onscreen instructions. 4 Turn the printer off, wait a few seconds, then turn it back on. For more information about setting up a printer on a computer using Windows, see “To use the printer from a computer using Windows:” on page 22. I Want to Update My AirPort Software Apple periodically updates AirPort software to improve performance or add features.
It is recommended that you update your AirPort Express to use the latest software. To download the latest version of AirPort Express software, go to www.apple.com/airport. AirPort Express Placement Considerations The following recommendations can help your AirPort Express achieve maximum wireless range and optimal network coverage. • Place your AirPort Express in an open area where there are few obstructions, such as large pieces of furniture or walls.
Try to place it away from metallic surfaces. • If you place your AirPort Express behind furniture, keep at least an inch of space between the AirPort Express and the edge of the furniture. • Avoid placing your AirPort Express in areas surrounded by metal surfaces on three or more sides. • If you place your AirPort Express in an entertainment center with your stereo equipment, avoid completely surrounding AirPort Express with audio, video, or power cables.
Place your AirPort Express so the cables are to one side. Maintain as much space as possible between AirPort Express and the cables. • If you place your AirPort Express behind your stereo equipment, place it on one side or the other. Avoid centering it behind your stereo. • Try to place your AirPort Express at least 25 feet from a microwave oven and a 2.4 GHz cordless phone, or other sources of interference.
