I have been using AirPlay with my old AirPort Express for a few months without any problems.


After the recent iTunes update (I believe), it no longer works.


It shows this message for a long time:

And then this:

After that, the option to play from the AirPlay speakers disappears in iTunes:

And I can no longer access the AirPort Extress via the AirPort Utility (5.6):

I have tried disconnecting the AirPort from the power, resetting it twice, and restarting my Mac.


What else can I try?


(I am running the latest Lion on my MacBook Pro.)
