I was following the tips from SPSherm, got as far as things working when the security was turned off but as soon as I turned it on again I was back to the flashing amber light. I've got it working now and wanted to add my findings in case it helps...

I've got an old 802.11g airport express and my router is an O2 branded Thomson TG587n v2.

It turns out that if I have my router set to mixed mode (WPA/WPA2) then the airport express will only connect if I set it to WPA (not MPA/WPA2 or WPA2). If I want to get the airport express to connect over WPA2 then I have to set the router to WPA2 only mode (not mixed) in which case the airport will connect in either WPA/WPA2 mode or WPA2 mode.

Hope that info is useful for someone else turning up here after a google search...
