Question:Q:itunes not connecting via airplay on wired and wireless network
I have some computers on the wired part of my network, and others on wireless. My appletv2 shows in itunes on ALL (both wired and wireless) computers that there exists an AppleTv airplay speaker, but only the computers on the same "side" of the network (wired, or wireless) can actually connect and use the appletv as an airplay device. I have Bell Fibe25 and they provide 2 devices to achieve wireless connectivity, the main VDSL unit that has 4 lan ports on the back, and a basic Cisco WAP610N that connects into one of the lan ports on the VDSL unit for the wireless part.
My firewall is turned off as well.
Can anyone shed some light on why this is happening? My MacPro does not have wireless, and it would not be practical to connect my AppleTV2 to Ethernet cable.

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
Was interesting, new to wireless connections, just bought Airport Extreme. I wanted to leave my IMac 2008 hooked up to the wired cable modem connection, and have wireless capability for using MacBook Air, and my two iphones. How did you do this, using both wired and wireless?
