while it doesn't answer your original question, you might want to consider getting a pair of *powerline adapters* _*such as these*_ if you don't get your issue resolved.
I finally was able to solve my problem by following the instructions below (pulled from another thread regarding airtunes) to disable IP6 settings in the network. When I did this, I was able to connect to everything just fine.
So people; when you have problems with iTunes not connecting to your Airtunes maybe you can try the following:
1. Open System Preferences
2. Open Network pane
3. Select Airport in the left list
4. Click the Advanced button
5. Go to the TCP/IP tab
6. Set the "Configure IPv6" field to Off.
7. Click "OK"
8. Click "Apply"
9. Let iTunes connect to you're Airtunes speakers

I have Windows 7 and the same resolution fixed my problem but you do it in a slightly different way:
- Open Control Panel.
- Network and Internet
- Network and Sharing Center
- On the left menu bar select "Change adapter Settings"
- Right Click on Network Adapter (Might be Wireless or Wired or change Both) select Properties
- Under "The connection uses the following items:" UNCHECK - Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)
- Click OK
- Restart Itunes and refresh Connection!
Thanks for your help Shane
