I have a problem after the iTunes 11.0.1 update.

I cannot use airplay to my airport express using my iMac's wired ethernet connection. If I shutdown ethernet and only use Wi-Fi on my Mac, I can connect to the airport express and use Airplay. The airport express is connected wirelessly.


With iTunes 11.0.0 and earlier I had no problems. Any ideas? Or just wait for iTunes 11.0.2 ?



iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    I wish I knew the answer to this -- very frustrating that Apple ruined the best thing about I Tunes. There was a promise that I Tunes 11.0.1 would fix airplay, but I still have the same issues you do (as do many others, apparently).


    A real shame. An update should be...an update, not a regression.

    had the same problem, but with wireless... i found a solution online and tried it - worked for me.



    To disable IPv6 in OS X Lion, you will need to use the Terminal.

    • Applications > Utilities > Terminal
    • To determine what are all of your Mac's network interfaces are, issue the following command: networksetup -listallnetworkservices
    • To disable IPv6 for wireless, issue the following command: networksetup -setv6off Wi-Fi; to disable IPv6 for Ethernet, issue the following command: networksetup -setv6off Ethernet
    • To re-enable IPv6, use -setv6automatic instead

    Thanks. This worked for me. Strange however why this problem arises?
