Sometimes rebooting the Airport makes it start over, but it can take a little while to show up... Older Airports I had to reboot once a month or so, since the last upgrade, solid for months now...

A couple times relatives have fought the good fight, gave up and gave me an Airport Extreme as well as an Airport Express...

The Express was replaced by another, it popped right up for him.. Like the first one should have... I found it to be a couple firmware issues out of date, brought it up, hasn't failed in the last couple years...

The Extreme, my Inlaw, working with a mix of PCs and Macs, said the Extreme was dropping off, confused between his PC & Mac access, maybe... so when I got it, again, it's firmware was way outdated.. Brought it up to date, ad I've been using it for many moons now... He was used to Linksys, back he went..

Since then I've picked up another at the flea market, reset, updated it, so I have a spare...

Once up, with the latest software, they seem bulletproof...
