Trouble getting MacBook connect to AirPort Extreme over WiFi
I can't get my MacBook with OS-X Yosemite to connect with my AirPort Extreme.
Believe it or not my 2009 AirPort Extreme has never been used for a variety of reasons (taking care of elderly parents, cancer/chemo, etc.)
Is it possible to connect these two devices? I thought that I might need to download some upgraded software for the AirPort to begin with.
I read the Pogue Yosemite manual (all of it - meticulously) and followed the directions from the AirPort setup guide to the letter.
The AirPort came with a disc but I can't open it. Is this a hopeless case? I have a new Linksys CM3008 modem. The upgrade to Yosemite was done at an Apple store in April 2017.
It seems to be a Catch-22, Yosemite wont recognize the AirPort and let me upgrade software, but to use the AirPort I think I need upgraded software.
So far I haven't found any useful info from the Apple help pages. I'd be grateful for any help. Thanks!!!
