And AirPlay works over wifi. The iPad and AppleTV should be be connected to the same wifi network.IMac, Windows 7, iPad 3G, iPhone 4, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedApr 7, 2011 6:40 AM (in response to red555)I'm not using Apple TV, My AV receiver is Marantz SR7005 and have just downloaded its airplay function (it should be same as the Apple airplay). I wonder if it is ok to just connect the AV receiver to a rounter which is not linked to broadband and I can use my i-pad to search the AV receiver for using the airplay function.

to update your receiver then it must already be connected to your network and should be ready to work.MacPro Dual Core 2.66 Ghz, MacBook Pro 15", iPhone 4, Mac OS X (10.6.6), AEXs, Red 2G & 5G Nano, Red Shuffle, 160 GB Classic, Apple TV
Currently Being ModeratedApr 7, 2011 10:57 PM (in response to deggie)Dear deggie, thanks for your info. Let me make it clear for situation as below: my receiver's firmware had been updated already and it was connected to the network at that time. However, since I must put the receiver in a place where do not have 'Plug' for internet. The technician of Marantz told me that it is not necessary to connect my reciever to internet in using airplay and what I should do is to buy a rounter and link it to the receiver only, then I'll be able to search my reciever in my i-pad for using airplay. What I'm concerning now is that can a rounter be function as he said without connecting to internet. I want to clarify it before going to buy the router.
Currently Being ModeratedApr 8, 2011 3:04 AM (in response to Keith824)You can do that, but I'm not sure why you would.
Yes, an iPad and a receiver with AirPlay CAN talk to each other if they connect to the same wireless router REGARDLESS of whether that router has access to the Internet.
But, anytime this is happening, you iPad can not access internet for safari, email, etc.
If you are buying a router, it seems like you'd want to have it connected to the Internet and then let hour computer, iPad, and receiver all use it wirelessly.
HOWEVER, if your Marrantz receiver only has ETHERNET network connectivity, and cannot communicate wirelessly (which is what I'm going to suspect), there are other adapters that will facilitate this. Specifically, there have been many gaming adapters produced at a time when XBOX and the like only had cabled access and didn't have wifi built-in. That's the sort of adapter you would need.
You can get another router, but that really seems like overkill, and your iPad will be crippled any time it is connected--not just when using AirPlay. You would have to go to settings, turn on wifi, enjoy AirPlay, and then turn wifi off when finished.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 8, 2011 3:07 AM (in response to Landrix)Let me be clear, though. If you do not already have a router between your computer and your Internet connection, you'd need one regardless. Where you put that router is another story.iMac quad-core, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini (all versions), G4, Time Capsule,, Mac OS X (10.6.2), Leopard and Snow Leopard, Windows 7 WMC, MOTU, iPhones 4 & 3G

I'm in the same situation as yours.
I connected the Marantz SR7005 to the router with Airport Express wirelessly; It can be seen amongst the available Airplay devices, it works fine for two-three minutes and then crash...the SR7005 remains online on the network but cannot be seen as an Airplay device anymore. If I restart and reinitialize the Airport Express then everything is fine again; but it crashes again after few minutes.
If you find any solution, please tell me! Thanks in advance!

I'm in the same dilemma, i have my a/v reciever pioneer in my room and the router is in other room connecting the pc. I'm thinking to buy a 2tb timecapsule to give the reciever internet connection?
Was that possible with the airport extreme?
I also have an apple tv2 connected directly to the reciever an can do airplay even whith the tv off. But i want the internet in the reciever to use also the pionneer iOS app.
