Airport Express problems

Hi guys,

I am running a 2008 Macbook pro with a .11n wireless router connected to the internet.

I thought it would be nice to add an AE to my existing network so I could use it for music etc.

After setting it up via the airport utility (adding to existing network etc) at the bit where AU says 'AE settings have been successfully updated waiting for it to restart' - it waits for a while and says there has been a problem and I should shut down AU.

Once I restart AU it cannot recognise the AE - this is despite a solid green light on the AE.

I have returned one already to apple as I thought it may be a hardware problem but I have just got the same problem with my second one.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
