I was trying to set up a new Apple AirPort Express to run on my exisitng home Wi-Fi network and managed to stuff something up.

My D-Link wireless router is working and I can connect with Wi-Fi on my phone, my iPad and my wife's netbook, but my laptop will not connect. I can't for the life of me see where/how to get to settings that will get it re-connected.

Would be grateful for some advice.




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Check that the laptops not set to a specific band only, that its not got anythign else not on defaults in the properties of it. Delete the network from the list and let it re-find it and add it again.

check the hardware wireless switch on the laptop is on.

Thats all I got.

Thanks. How do I get to look at the properties? Deleting the network and re-finding it sounds like a good idea but I can't find a place where I have ability to delete the network?

Thanks richms - found how to delete network then restarted and re-found network. I wouldn't have thought of that but it made sense when you said it - much appreciated.
