Hi everybody


I have a DSL modem and iMac connected with Ethernet

I have an airport express 802.11g (last version 6.1 firmware) that I would like to connect to my Ethernet DSL modem.

I want to use airplay from the imac and from my iphone and ipad connected to the DSL wifi network


I configure Airport Express to join an existing wireless network with SSID and password from my DSL modem (so i don't create another wifi airport network)

My problem is that I loose the Airport after reboot and can never connect to airplay speaker


Room 1 : DSL  <--Ethernet--> iMac

Room 2 : Hifi System <--Jack--> Airport Express <--Ethernet--> EthernetRoom2

Room 1 and Room 2 are connected with ethernet cable  throught a big wall


thanks for your help.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
