Should I not be able to listen to my itunes library in my iphone by streaming it through my home wifi? MacBook and iphone both say home sharing is on. Both same AppleID's.

 

I am at a loss....

    Here is the Trouble shooting document for you to work through.

     

    Might be worth switching your router off and on first

    Nope. Ipad mini and Iphone 4s and mac all on wifi and signed into appleID.

    Is the Second Generation Airport the problem? Thats running v7.6.1

     

     

     

    There is no Home Sharing icon in the iTunes - latest version

    You are right there is no Home Sharing icon in the default view for iTunes 11

     

    View > Show Sidebar on a Mac

     

    Ctrl S on windows

     

    If the homeshare is turned on you should see it in the lefthand sidebar if you are sharing between computers. If you have one computer and multiple devices you will not see it because they just stream your content.

     

    I don't know if it is your Airport that is the issue as I do not currently have one just a BT Hub 3 wireless router

     

    If you have not already tried it try logging out of home sharing on all devices

     

    on the computer File > Home Sharing > Turn Off Home Sharing

     

    On the devices,  Settings, Music scroll down and tap on the home sharing to sign out.

     

    Re activate Home Sharing by typing in the same Apple id

     

    On the computer File > Home Sharing > Create Home Share

     

    This may just reset everything
