How to Set up an Airport Again?

Recently I have purchased a new WiFi modem i.e., Apple Airport Express. I just want to know how to connect Airport to the speaker. Actually, that version was not running on Mavericks so I have installed Airport Utility application on Windows laptop. But when I plug my Airport, it is connecting to my iPhone but Airport Utility is not displaying anywhere. Please suggest me how to set up Airport again?

Setting up your Airport Express to make use of the desired speaker can be done by following a few simple steps, which I will discuss here in detail. I am assuming you already have a Router network in place, but since you haven't mentioned which router you are using I will describe a general one. Follow the instructions given below carefully:


Before starting the setup process, make sure you have an Ethernet cable at hand, a USB or Thunderbolt Ethernet Adapter.

Step 1:
Connect your Airport Express to a constant power source, and then using the Ethernet cable connect it to your computer system. Wait for few minutes to let the connecting get established.

Step 2:
Open the Apple Airport Utility app and decide whether you want to setup this Airport Express as an independent new network or add to your current network. once the decided select the appropriate option from the list and proceed as per the on-screen instructions.

Step 3:
Now if you want to make use of this device as a secondary base to your current network, then from the utility app, disable the wireless settings so that it will work as a base station and directly gain all the info from your current network in use.

Step 4:
Now, configure the AirPlay option. Make sure that the speaker you want to use is connected to the network. Go to the AirPlaytab and save the name of the speaker you want to use, you can also set a password for the same if you want. Save the settings.

Step 5:
Your Airport Express has now been configured as an AirPlay receiver. While the Airport Express reboots, connect it to your current network with the help of ethernet cable Since you have disabled the wireless signal broadcasting, it will simply work as a bridge and AirPlay receiver.

Hopefully, these steps helped you in setting up your Airport Express again, in case you have any further doubts or queries regarding the same, then feel free to reply back and I will try to resolve it for you.
