Excellent Strength Signal but Unable to Connect to Wireless

by Tyus4 / July 9, 2012 9:43 AM PDT

I recently purchased a apple airport express. After hooking it up and working fine, the only problem was the distance it worked with my iphone so I googled extending network and came up with this youtube video. . After trying that I lost my wireless internet. I can connect via ethernet cable. The wireless option has a X on the side of it. I spent an hour with verizon going though my settings and they couldn't figure it out. They said it is a computer problem and problably needs the driver to be uninstalled and re-installed again. I think it has to be some sort of setting saying it happened when messing with airport express settings. Any help? Thanks

(NT) Why not reset the Airport and start over?

I tried a soft and hard reset. Now I just have a "apple network" option under wireless connections along with the one I need to connect to.

When I click on the wireless conection i need to connect to it says the settings saved on this computer don't match the requirements for the network

That's close to a message I see on Windows.

But too far off for me to guess what it was on the screen.

Think over the first time you set it up. Repeat that process.

Sorry that I can't guess those messages.

Doing the windows diagnostics, it say problem with the wireless adapter or access point. If that helps anyone. Thanks

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
