AWESOME. After many hours of frustration, THIS was the only thing that worked for me. I have a DLINK DIR-655 Revision B router and wanted to use the Airport Express to stream iTunes. It was all working with an old DIR-655 that had died. After setting up the new router, could not get AE to connect to wireless network.

Did EXACTLY these steps as @cbloks2010 says:
  1. (hard) reset AE and let it reboot
  2. remove WiFi security (also removed auto channel scan for now), on DIR-655 and let it reboot
  3. connect to AE using either Win or OSX Airport Utility
  4. configure AE to connect to wireless network, no security; reboot
  5. confirm solid green light on Airport Express; should be able to re-connect with Airport Utility
  6. add WPA/WPA2 Personal security and WiFi password to Airport Express; reboot
  7. AE blinks amber
  8. added security back to DLINK DIR-655 (WPA-Personal, WPA or WPA2 mode, TKIP and AES cipher) - reboot
  9. confirm solid green comes back to AE
  10. confirm iTunes client can see the AE
  11. perform happy dance

I have not yet added back the auto channel scan to the DLINK, but may do so in the future if my microwave interferes too much!

Thanks again to @cbloks2010!
