After reading about the Apple Airport Express decided to buy one for the sole purpose of connecting wirelessly in hotels or while on a cruise ship with my iPad. The Airport Express arrived in the mail yesterday but before it arrived I read the install instructions from many sources on websites to include the posts of Miketoolz and Mth3w. Today came the test of my patience on setting up this device, at first try I had problems, could not get the green light to come on, re-booted and got the same results, read the instructions over again (must say they are not the best I have read) the help page is overwhelming, however I decided to give it one more try and this time I found the install wizard and set up went perfect and I got the green light. I never used the Ethernet cable as I wanted to install the wireless feature so I typed in the name of my network and typed in my password and it was up and running.
Now I need a little help.
After completion of the install it said a new firmware is available and Press Here For Download, which I did, then it asked me for a password, I typed in my network password but it would not take it, so my question is what password do they mean.
Also when I go to use it again in a hotel or a friends house do I just hook the Ethernet cable to his router from the Air Express to his router, and do the same thing in a hotel with the plug in the room.
Of course this is based on if the settings I made are correct
Appreciate any help, thanks.
