My Airport Extreme is not working after power loss. How do I fix it?

Everytime there is a power loss at my house my AE dorsnt work for 4-5 weeks. Is there any easy fix, so I dont have to wait for 4-5 weeks every time?

Your AirPort Extreme is likely defective.
If it is in warranty, ask Apple to replace it. If it's not, you will need replace it, as a power outage should not do any more than turn off the AirPort until the power comes back up. This would really be the same as if you pulled the power cord from the back of the device and then plugged it back in later.

    I have seen the Apple webpage suggesting the "five R's" (including restore).  Before doing anything, I want to be sure that restoring or any other action is not going to delete or risk my data. 
    I would be very grateful if anyone can suggest a fix for this problem, in a way that will not risk my data. 
    Thanks in advance!

    Did you try a hard reset with the iPod still connected to your PC?  Have you tried multiple USB ports, preferably high powered USB 2.0 ports?
    To do a hard reset, first make sure the hold switch is in the Off position, then press and hold both the Select (Center) and Menu buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.
    Have you also worked through each and every single troubleshooting suggestion in this Apple support document?

    If you restored to factory settings/new iPod and still have the problem that indicates a hardware problem.

  • Airport Extreme ethernet not working with Windows XP

    Windows XP no longer connects to the Internet via the Airport Extreme ethernet port. XP says the cable isn't plugged in but when I connect XP directly to the DSL modem it works fine. When I connect my MacBook Pro to the Internet through the Airport Extreme ethernet port it works fine. (I'm sure it's connected by ethernet because I do +sudo ifconfig en1 down+.) I can't figure it out. I'm relatively certain Airport Extreme is blocking XP from connecting via ethernet but I'm not certain. It worked without a glitch for about two years. Lightning fried my old DSL modem and ever since I got the new one, XP "can't see" Airport Extreme, but will connect directly to the DSL modem and the net without a hitch. Any insight will be much appreciated.

    I'm not sure why your PC is not able to connect to the AirPort Extreme Base Station's (AEBS) Ethernet port, but it is likely the lightning strike may have something to do with it. I'm also a bit surprised you're were able to run the "sudo ifconfig" command under Windows.
    To rule out general communications issues between the modem and the AEBS, I suggest that you try a complete power recycle of all your network components as follows ...
    Try the following, in order, checking for Internet access after each step, until resolved:
    1. If the modem has a reset switch, use it to reset the modem. Wait at least 5-10 minutes for the modem to initialize.
    2. Remove power from the modem. If it has a backup battery, remove this as well. Wait 5-10 minutes. Replace the battery, and add power back to the modem.
    3. Perform a complete power recycle of your network components as follows:
    Modem/Router Power Recycling - Quick
    o Power-off the modem, AEBS, & computer(s); Wait at least 5 minutes.
    o Power-on the modem; Wait at least 5 minutes.
    o Power-on the AEBS; Wait at least 5 minutes.
    o Power-on the computer(s)
    If this fails to get the modem to "recognize" the Internet router, then try the "Full" version.
    Modem/Router Power ReCycling - Full
    o Power-off the modem, AEBS, & computer(s). (Wait at least 30 minutes. If possible, leave the modem off overnight.)
    o Power-on the modem; Wait at least 15 minutes.
    o Power-on the AEBS; Wait at least 5 minutes.
    o Power-on the computer(s)
    4. Contact your ISP to have them perform a "modem reset."

  • Why does airport extreme need hard reset after power outage

    Airport extreme is unresponsive after interruptions in power and requires a hard reset to get working again.  It will also freeze during heavy usage from multiple computers and then a hard reset is necessary to get it working again.  It is becoming a chore.

    The obvious answer is that if you are using firmware 7.5.2, downgrade to 7.4.2.
    Otherwise if you can simulate a power fail by pulling the plug and still have the problem then
    If you are still under warranty, take it back...

  • Airport extreme card not working with leopard / G5

    I just upgraded my PowerMac to leopard (G5 dual 1.8, 3 gigs of ram, 250 GB HD). I bought it new in December 2004 from apple. Previously I had been using a USB adapter to connect to my wireless internet at home (Linksys WRT54G). This device does not support leopard so I got an airport extreme card from
    The Airport extreme card is configured properly as far as I know but it will only connect to my network for about 5 seconds then it drops. The USB adapter worked perfectly in the same spot and my macbook right next to it works fine as well.
    1. Could it be a bad Airport extreme card?
    2. Is this a known issue? And possibly be resolved with the 10.5.2 update?
    It is a fresh Leopard install with no updates as I can not connect it to the internet to get them. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Hi, I have the same machine (4 ram slots?) have you got the connector for the aerial that connects to the motherboard attached to your airport card. Mine works a treat.

  • Officejet Pro L7590 Scan feature does not work after power failure!

    Hello guys,
    I have an L7590 set up as a wired network printer through a netgear router. I am running Windows Xp. I installed the printer and everithing was working fine, but whenever there is a power outage the printer scanner does not see the computer. I am able to print from the computer but the twain feature is the only thing affected. I checked the router "Attached devices" and the printer is listed. The only way that I have being able to repair the problem is doing a complete uninstall and reinstalling the printer software again. Does anybody knows why this happpens or how to fix it? thanks a lot.

    I am having a very similar problem.  Everything will be working fine, and then one day the scan function will not work.  It will print fine but it wont scan.  It locks up my computer and then I have to reinstall.  Now it has happened and I cant get it to work even after a reinstall.  Printer works fine, but scanning wont work.  I am able to ping the printer and nothing has changed on my computer.  I am lost with this one.  I hope someone is able to answer this.

  • Airport Extreme Card Not Working Properly (Web Browsing Slow)

    Hello people of apple discussions,
    I have the original MacBook Pro with Mac OS X 10.5.7 installed on it. And I have a problem, my airport extreme card is not functioning properly like when I go on the internet, it comes up with the server "" cannot be reached or the same with Yahoo! Back when it had 10.4 it was functioning properly with very high speeds. But, all the other PCs in the house gets good internet even my iPhone and the router is functioning properly. It's been like this since for about 6-8 months and i am very upset with my mac!:|So can I have some help or any suggestions!
    Message was edited by: mr.ts

    Have you tried contacting your ISP? Sometimes they can help you optimize your settings. Such as DNS server numbers. I had a simullar problem and found out my DNS settings were wrong.
    Do you have other computers that use the wireless single? If not you might look into your router to see if maybe something is wroung with it. You can always go to a wifi hotspot or a friends house and see how the connection is there. If it seems normal then you know it is your ISP or your router. If not then it might be a laptop problem.

  • Airport Extreme N not working with a PC

    As the title notes, the PC I'm trying to set up will not connect with my Airport Extreme N, it's trying to connect through a USB WiFi adapter (no built in WiFi or WiFi card). When I turn all security off on the Airport Extreme N it will connect easily, but when I turn WEP back on it will not connect. When WEP is turned on it also claims that the wireless network is a WPA network, which I think might be the issue (the fact that its reporting different security).
    The PC is running Windows XP Service Pack 2.
    An iBook G4, PowerBook and Macbook all have no difficulties connecting. An old iBook G3 (with 802.11b Airport card) is also reporting that the network is WPA encrypted (but I believe that its airport software might be outdated)
    I could obviously change the security on the AEn to WPA but I would be unable to connect my Nintendo DS to the WiFi network then, as it only accepts WEP keys.
    Anyone got a clue?

    What does a Windows compatible password entitle?
    I've also tried the hex equivalent of the password, and it wouldn't take that either.

  • Yosemite does not start after power loss

    I just want to report a bug related to the new OSX Yosemite.
    Here at work I have to manage around 30 iMacs, plus some MacBook Pro.
    After some initial tests, where I did not discover any particular incompatibility with our applications, I decided to upgrade my machines to Yosemite, but I had to stop the upgrade process when I realized the new OSX has this big and strange problem... now I have my machines half upgraded.
    It happened to have some power losses due to the bad weather conditions, and after each one the machines with Yosemite didn't start... you have the black screen with the apple logo and the bar freezed at almost 50%.
    You can only power OFF and ON till the computer finally starts... usually it takes 5-6 tries.
    The problem is not related with the iMac models, I have some different kind of iMac and on overyone I have the very same problem, the only thing these machines have in common is the new OSX 10.10 (10.10.1 didn't fix this problem), the others with Mavericks does no suffer this matter after the same power loss.
    Hope this report could reach some Apple developer, in any case if I have to produce some log to debug it let me know, I will be happy to help.

    Send Apple feedback. They won't answer, but at least will know there is a problem. If enough people send feedback, it may get the problem solved sooner.
    Or you can use your Apple ID to register with this site and go the Apple BugReporter. Supposedly you will get an answer if you submit feedback.
