Using the airport usb disk with playstation3...

anyone know how i can get my PS3 to see the USB disk hooked up to my AE, and use it as a media share?
I have a wireless-n AE, with a 250GB USB drive hooked up, and also a WD Mybook world edition 1TB server on a ethernet connection.
all the macs in my house see the drives just fine, but everytime i search for a media share on the PS3, it says 'no media shares found'.
i'm sure its a PS3 issue, but i was just wondering if anyone here has any experience with it, as i'm a complete noob when it comes to networking.
thanks.

a) WEP WPA password, ive never set one up for the airport, where do i find out what this password is for my PC?
You will set up wireless security (WEP or WPA) on the AirPort Express Base Station (AX)..using the AirPort Admin Utility, which is part of AirPort for Windows.
b) Everytime I run the Airport Express Assistant it gives me an error message saying "Windows is not the current network manager...please change Windows to the default", I dont know why I get this error and I assume windows is the one managing the networks I use.
Your PC has wireless capability...correct? The AirPort Setup Assistant requires a wireless connection to the AX.
c) I can connect to the airport through windows, but when in the Airport Management Utility it does not detect the Airport
Connect your PC directly, using an Ethernet cable, to the Ethernet port of the AX, and then run the AirPort Admin Utility to configure it.
d) After all this, will Windows and iTunes allow you to stream music thru the Airport Express, like it does on my mac with itunes???
Yes, you will be able to stream iTunes from your PC to the AX, either wired or wirelessly.

  • Can I use the Airport Express only with a LAN connection?

    Because I want to connect my macbook (+ all other hardware) via WLAN with my Speedport Router. Which is connect via LAN cable with the Airport Express. Can I then deactivate the WLAN function in the Airport software?
    When I try this, I can configure the setup. This works till a restart, after that I cannot find the Airport Express. Already I connect the macbook with the LAN-cable it works again.

    look that
    so i have connected my components.
    i only want to deactivate the WLAN in the Airport Configuration. if i connected in this way it works without problems. after restart i cannot find the airport express.

    I am not 100% what isn't allowed.. but I am assuming you want to spread the backup across the two disks.. internal TC and 6TB external.. this is not possible.. It has to be one or the other. TC has no way to build a raid JBOD or anything else. Nor would you want to as that is the most likely to fail and kill your data.
    Let me add, backing up 6TB over USB on TC.. will be the most excruciating experience of your life.. cf child birth or passing kidney stones.. large ones.. being the male equivalent.

  • Has anyone found a way to use the Epson Print Utility with an Airport?

    I have an Epson Photo 2200 connected to the USB port of my Time Capsule. Everything has been working great until recently. Now I cannot use Epson Printer Utility unless I connect the printer directly to my Mac via the USB port. It does not find the printer. Connected directly, Epson Print Utility2 works properly. Epson Print Utility3 does not find the printer, even when connected directly. Reading the various discussion threads, I am not alone and the problem is with many, if not all of the Epson printers. The Utility worked fine at one time but appears to have quit working over the network probably around OS upgrade 10.5.2. In addition, you must use the Gutenprint driver when installing the printer. Epson's gives an error.
    Has anyone found a way to use the Epson Print Utility with an Airport print server with OS 10.5.2 or later?

    Before receiving this reply, I had other problems with the Gutenprint driver. I'm not sure what I did but after playing around for about a day, the Epson driver finally worked while connected through the USB port. The printer then worked with the Airport. The print utility still doesn't work without being directly connected. (It used to work while connected to the Airport. Until recently, I never connected the printer directly to a computer.)

  • Can I use the airport express with a desktop computer that is not wire less- I want to have wifi in the house for an iphone

    Can i use the airport express with a desktop computer not wifi- I want wifi for my iphone

    I can't seem to find any information anywhere.  It seems like it should work since the AX is showing up on his wifi settings on both his iPhone and iPod.  Not to mention the Apple "Genius" told him that it should work.  However, they also told him that it came with an ethernet, USB and the stereo patch cables...

  • Can i use the airport express in my hotel with wired connection?

    I'm going to be traveling quite a bit coming up and staying in hotels with wired internet connections in the room.  Can i use the airport express to connect with the hotel's internet connection and then my ipad and/or iphone 4S?  I'm new to Apple products so will certainly appreciate any info that may help.  Thank you!

    You will need to have AirPort Utility installed on the iPad and/or iPhone. It is free on the App Store
    App Store - AirPort Utility
    Connect the AirPort Express 802.11n to the hotel Ethernet jack using an Ethernet cable
    Power up the AirPort Express and wait 40-45 seconds
    Tap Settings, then tap Wi-Fi on the iPad
    Tap the AirPort Express under the heading of Set up an AirPort Base Station
    AirPort Utility will take a moment to to analyze the connection and then you can proceed with the easy guided setup
    Once the AirPort Express is configured, you should not have to set it up again at the next hotel. But, you could if you want to.

  • Is it safe to use the Belkin power strip with USB ports to charge my iPad? Or is the iPad USB adapter the safest route to take when traveling with device?

    Is it safe to use the Belkin power strip with USB ports to charge my iPad?
    Or is it better to travel with the Wall Charger provided with iPad?
    Concerned about safety of the device. Thanks for your thoughts.

    The quickest way (and really the only way) to charge your iPad is with the included 10W USB Power Adapter. iPad will also charge, although more slowly, when attached to a computer with a high-power USB port (many recent Mac computers) or with an iPhone Power Adapter (5W). When attached to a computer via a standard USB port (most PCs or older Mac computers) iPad will charge very slowly (but iPad indicates not charging). Make sure your computer is on while charging iPad via USB. If iPad is connected to a computer that’s turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, the iPad battery will continue to drain.
    Apple recommends that once a month you let the iPad fully discharge & then recharge to 100%.
    How to Calibrate Your Mac, iPhone, or iPad Battery

    At this link http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/galaxy-tab-android-tablet,3014-11.html , tests show that the iPad 2 battery (25 watt-hours) will charge to 90% in 3 hours 1 minute. It will charge to 100% in 4 hours 2 minutes. The new iPad has a larger capacity battery (42 watt-hours), so using the 10W charger will obviously take longer. If you are using your iPad while charging, it will take even longer. It's best to turn your new iPad OFF and charge over night.
