Airport - 08/27/03 04:11 AM

Just got the old (802.11b) base station of my mom's and I tried to get it working. The card in my PB recognized it but I didn't know the password. My mom can't remember it either but she said it was public. I've tried that and every other possible password she uses.<br><br>I got a great suggestion to just reboot it so I did. Got directions to directly connect the base to the PB with an ethernet cable, redid the TCP configuration, pressed the reset button....everything. <br><br>I got to the point where my Airport Asst was scanning for stations and couldn't find mine. It still won't. It will when I remove the cable from the station and plug it back into the cable modem (box). But then it continues to ask for a password. AAAARGH!<br><br>help!<br><br>

I forget what the default password is, but I have an Airport Extreme basestation at home. I'll look in the manual when I get home.<br><br>If after that, it still doesn't work, hold down the reset button for five seconds, it will erase all settings. Then put them in again and try again.<br><br>

Thanks! Will try that. At the rate I'm pressing down on that reset button, I'd better get some sort of connection. It pains me that I have a fully functioning Airport base station and I can't get it work!<br><br>
