    I have one of these also and it works fine with Mac's etc. Just one question, did you go into the settings and change your password from the supplied key? If not, try a reset by taking of the cover and using a paperclip to reset the unit to its default settings, and try the provided password.

    You are using the password that comes on that sticker correct?

    I have the same thing and is fine for me.

    It looks like it may the way you have your airport configured in that case. Perhaps have a look at what channel you have the connection set to and compare that to your fiances computer
