Still slightly confused, with the link you provided i chose scenario 2. All the other secanrios instructed i connect the airport express to my home stereo or powered speakers. As i dont have an aiport express only an airport extreme there is no audio jack and cannot connect it to the stereo/speakers.
option 2: Connecting to an existing Wi-Fi network as part of a roaming network
- Ensure that the AirPort base station Ethernet cables are connected as above
I have done this and conected it via ethernet cat6 to the modem/router
- Launch AirPort Utility 6.1. The Assistant will automatically configure the Roaming network
Im using windows 7 and cannot find this version of aiport utility, only 5.6.1 - The message comes up: Aiport utility was unable to find any airport wireless device. I am running this utility on my win7 HTPC (which is connected to my modem/router via cat6 LAN) The airport light is blinkng amber.
would you reccommend a hard reset of the airport? or can you provide a link for AirPort Utility 6.1.?
...with the link you provided i chose scenario 2.
Actually option 3, Connecting to an existing Wi-Fi network, exclusively for iTunes music, would be appropriate for your network configuraton for streaming.
As i dont have an aiport express only an airport extreme there is no audio jack and cannot connect it to the stereo/speakers.
Your original post you stated: "I have an unused Airport Express basestation..." Did I misunderstand you?
