Your ISP have given you a wireless router. I thought you just wanted to add the AEX to your network, rather than replace your wireless router.
In which case 'join current network'.

and now on my laptop, in view available wireless networks, my network (router) is showing but has a red x next to it, and it says "the settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements for the network"
i'm currently online using my mobile broadband modem..
this is frustrating....

According to Microsoft answers.
i ran the setup cd that came with my broadband and am connected again.
the AEX is still green, but i can't use it, it's not on airfoil and i only have the option of using the pc's speakers in itunes.
i wonder where i'd get ten metres of ethernet cable
finally got it sorted. had to move the router into the lounge though, ran some ethernet cable from the hall.
had to select "replace a network with airport express (or something like that)
i don't know how anyone has managed to use the AEX to communicate wirelessly between laptop and router. i couldn't,
anyways, unlimited 8 meg broadband now, spotify will get a serious caning
I would check your T&Cs to see if your b/band is truly 'Unlimited' before caning Spotify max, as many ISPs employ FUPs (Fair Use Policies) on their 'Unlimited' packages and if yours does, you may end up with your b/band being throttled, downloads capped, p2p sites being blocked etc if you regularly exceed the FUP.

e30 a month for free off peak calls to landlines, 30 minutes a month to mobiles (a minute a day, only for emergencys, ie, no mobile credit )
8 meg uncongested broadband, unlimited download and upload allowance.
i grilled him thoroughly on the latter, he says it is what it says on the tin, unlimited with no FUP.
i just phoned eircom to be sure and it was confirmed.
this kind of deal would have cost e80 a month a couple of years ago, but it's competative out there.
i'm going bill pay for mobiles too, the same minutes per euro as pre-pay, but i'll get 2gigs a month data allowance and a HTC desire, it's all good
Does this cold caller also repair cars.
it makes no difference to me now, i've setup everything fine, though i had to hook up the AEX to my router.
but, has anyone actually set-up their AEX to work wirelessly with their router? i googled yesterday and found that many couldn't.
Mine works fine wirelessly, yes, though it can take several attempts...
it's certainly not intuitive, and i think the airport express manual is a bit techy for the layman.
perhaps another sub-section on the forum with a step by step guide to setting it up in the various configurations might be handy, seeing as it's such a popular device?
a little nickser for you jd
As I found out myself, it almost installed itself when using my iMac (and Airport Extreme 802.11n hosted network).
Getting my laptop (the one with my iTunes) to 'find' it was - seemingly - impossible. These things are spiffy in an all Apple environment.
Ok it might have worked (talked to the laptop) after a few attempts, but I wasn't prepared to invest that much time, research and effort for something that was supposed to be 'plug & play'.
Two generations of our Windows laptops (and two different PCs) spanning two different OS (XP Pro and W7) and an iMac have all been talking wirelessly to the Airport Extreme 802.11n - in the 4 years it has hosted our network - with no effort beyond entering the network password once when they were installed. I suppose it was too much to expect the same of the AEX.
Yes. I use the option to join a wireless network. The FritzBox is in the middle of the room, the AEX is near the stereo.
Because I use MAC-address filtering on the FritzBox I had to put in the MAC-address of the AEX. It has worked flawlessly since last October.
