The old Airport Base Station died again this morning, so I’m definitely giving up on it now. It seems to work for only a few hours after doing a hard reset and reloading everything, then it dies.
I just hooked up the Airport Express, and it’s working great. I have it sitting on my desk, so I can see the little green light. It’s small enough that I could just leave it on the floor, but I like being able to see if it’s working or not. It’s kind of hard to get it to stand up on the desk; I wish there was a little stand for it. Other than that, it’s great.
