I have a macbook and a airport express. I use it mainly for airtunes. Now I recently bought a windows 7 computer and would love to stream music via this computer. The problem is it doesn't have a wireless network option only ethernet, and I need to use that for my internet cable. The airport is connected with the same network as the windows 7 computer, but than via wireless connection.
When I look in the Airport-configuration program for the airport it doesn't find it, but I can find it by typing in the IP adress at the option "configure other basestation". When I want to configure it, I lose connection with the AE.
Is it possible to get a fixed and stable connection between the computer and AE? if so, how?
You are not alone. I have the same scenario. My older laptop running xp continues to work fine, and my iPad works fine, but my Windows 7 computer refuses to see the express unless I put in the IP address. Tried firewall and antivirus changes, uninstall/reinstalled multiple times, just can't figure it out.
