So Ive read of others having a similar problem, but my symptoms are a bit different.


My set up is:

Recent iMac

Airport & Timemachine Router

3 Airport expresses configured for music streaming

2 Apple TV2s that also support Airplay

Latest software on all of above hardware & airport utility.


This set up is sweet & worked for over 2 years.


Yesterday I updates all of the APE through the Airport utility (it prompted & I followed).


Now I can no longer connect to ANY of the APEs and ALSO cant connect to any of the AppleTV2s (which did not get an update yesterday & were working fine prior).

When I say I cannot connect it means:


1.  All APEs show up in my Airport utility as "green" and good connections.  They are seen & they appear to be working fine.  Also in person they have the green light.


2. Apple TV2s:  All work fine independently.


3.  All of them show up, as named, in my itunes drop down "share" button in the upper left near the volume control.




When I select any of them, it just shows the "connecting" graphic for about 20+ seconds & ultimately stops trying without connecting.
The APEs do NOT fall off the list, ie: they are still there in itunes & I can click on them (its seeing them) but I cannot connect.


After the initial firmware update, I did get the same 15006 error as others.  But since power cycling the router that error has gone away & I simply stall out & cannot connect as described above.


The ONLY thing I changed was the software update to the APEs & possible the Airport Router (forgot if I did this, sorry).


Please help.  This of course happened right as Im selling my house, literally the first day & I need this working.

Any suggestion, help, links? 
Very unapple like for this to happen & Im frustrated.

Dual Core iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
