Default Airport Extreme Technical Nightmare

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Everyone!

I'm a newbie here but I just had a quick technical question. I bought a BB8820 this morning and achieved connectivity for about 20min with my Apple Airport Extreme (old, cone-shaped, version). My network is an open network. However, afterwards it just simply stopped working and I got the infamous "unknown error" message.

Has anyone had any luck accessing WiFi with a 8820 and Airport?

Apple doesn't seem to follow 100% of the published standards with their products. I have noticed myself that my MacBook can't connect if I set certain options that are called out in the spec in my non Apple router...

The Airport series has had several reported issues with UMA. I'm not sure if anyone actually got them to work.
