- (hard) reset AE and let it reboot
- remove WiFi security (also removed auto channel scan for now), on DIR-655 and let it reboot
- connect to AE using either Win or OSX Airport Utility
- configure AE to connect to wireless network, no security; reboot
- confirm solid green light on Airport Express; should be able to re-connect with Airport Utility
- add WPA/WPA2 Personal security and WiFi password to Airport Express; reboot
- AE blinks amber
- added security back to DLINK DIR-655 (WPA-Personal, WPA or WPA2 mode, TKIP and AES cipher) - reboot
- confirm solid green comes back to AE
- confirm iTunes client can see the AE
- perform happy dance
I think you've done all the right things......plus a couple of EXTRAS.
I would think the sequence should be 2, 1, 4, 5....etc.
3 is sort of redundant once you've done 1. But, doing 1 first is rather pointless, isn't it, if you're booting into the presence of a still-secured by WPA router? I say kill the security on your network before you even fire up the A/E for the first time.
Any other opinions?
Just my 2cents.
