My wife just got a mac, and we want to get airplay working on our home audio system.


The cheapest way seams to get a Airport router as a reciever. The current router is however setup upstairs, and cannot easily be moved. I assume the mac needs to be connected to the Airport wifi in order stream airplay.


Can the airport do a wifi to wifi connection, and serve airplay this way? Or could I possibly run a lan cable from my router to the airplay, or does it need direct wan access to function?


If we do end up with the airplay as a repeater, can we expect some extra lag or other decreased internet performance?


thanks a lot :-)
