Currently Being ModeratedMar 18, 2010 5:41 PM (in response to Jane Evans)Suggest that you try a simple test by turning off the wireless on one of your computers and connecting it to the ethernet port on the AirPort Express. Can your laptop access the internet? If so, then you know the ethernet port is working correctly.
If the port seems to be working correctly, try restarting the Denon receiver by first pulling the power plug from the wall or the back panel of the device. Then reconnect the ethernet cable to the AirPort Express and power up the Denon to see if you can connect now.MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Time Capsule, AirPort Extreme, AirPort Express, iPhone
Currently Being ModeratedMar 18, 2010 7:17 PM (in response to Bob Timmons)What an excellent idea! Tried it and the computer said it was not attached to an ethernet port. It could be that my Express is an older one and truly only has ethernet WAN. At present, I will have to give up the idea of using Express to extend a wired part of the network. Thanks so much.Intel iMac 24", MacBook, iMac G4, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 20, 2010 12:09 PM (in response to Jane Evans)Discovered that I had that particular Airport Express NOT participating in the WDS network. Physically reset the modem and extended the WDS. The Denon then got a DHCP address that was on the WAN, not the LAN. I set it up with a LAN compatible address. With either, I cannot access Internet Radio, but I can do setup from the computer, which is very convenient. So one CAN extend the network through the ethernet port, but only if the AX is configured for WDS.Intel iMac 24", MacBook, iMac G4, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
