Which is another way of saying all is not right in Media Nation.
Got the digital box from Comcast this morning. I only had to go back once before everything was working properly.
Now I am dealing with our wireless Internet problem. I picked up an AirPort Express at the Apple Store after talking with a guy at the Genius Bar who seemed pretty knowledgeable (if not quite a genius). Here’s what I’m trying to do:
- Attach the cable coming in from outside the house to the back of the cable modem.
- Run an Ethernet cable from the back of the cable modem to the AirPort Express.
- Set up a wireless network using the AirPort Utility software.
I’ve come close a couple of times. I’ve had a strong signal coming from the AirPort. By all appearances, we should be good to go.
But none of our Macs will connect to the Internet. (For the moment, I’m running the EtherNet cable directly into the back of the family iMac. Very frustrating.) And then sometimes, when I try again, the AirPort doesn’t even show up in AirPort Utility.
I’ve got a 7:15 p.m. appointment at the Genius Bar, and I’m hoping someone will walk me through it step by step.
