I am trying to get my 1st Gen Airport Express connected to extend a network using the newer Airport Utility 6.1. However, when I get it connected and try to configure I get the following

"This version of AirPort Utility doesn't support this base station. Use AirPort Utility 5.6 to configure or manage this base station. AirPort Utility 5.6 is available at AirPort Service and Support."

However, when I went to get the older Airport Utility 5.6, I get an error that it is not supported by Lion. Surely, Apple is not leaving me high and dry on this one? Is there a workaround for this?

Thanks in advance.

Found it. If anyone else runs into this, there is a version of Airport Utility 5.6 for Lion/Mountain Lion

AirPort Utility 5.6 for Mac OS X Lion
QUOTE Thanks
