Follow up question: Is there a way to wirelessly use Airtunes and internet

I had marked this post as resolved, but things have subsequently become quite 'unresolved.'
This is my original thread where I explain the problem and Tesserax provides an answer:
http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1702063&tstart=0
Here is where I am now:
I made the changes that Tesserax suggested, and everything worked fine for about an hour. Internet and airtunes worked simultaneously. Then, for no reason that I can discern, airtunes stopped working. It would no longer connect to remote speakers, giving me instead a -3256 error message. I scanned the forum for a fix, found that there have been firmware updates. I found that I had 6.3 installed on the AX, but I re-downloaded it just to be sure. No dice. I also made sure that the UDP was not being blocked in the Pref/Sharing/Firewall window. It wasn't. In fact there was no UDP button at all. Finally, when I try to use the Airport utility, both the base station and AX turn off and disappear altogether during the utility scan. They don't reappear until I close iTunes and utilities, and only then after rebooting themselves.
Any ideas about what might be causing all of this?
Thank you,
Peter

Yes, you can do both at the same time, by reconfiguring the AirPort Express Base Station (AX) as a "wireless client."
Either connect to the AX's wireless network or connect directly, using an Ethernet cable, to the Ethernet port of the AX, and then using the AirPort Utility in "Manual Setup" mode, make the following changes:
AirPort > Base Station
o Base Station Name: <rename or leave default>
o Base Station Password: <enter desired password>
o Verify Password: <re-enter desired password>
o Remember this password in my keychain: (optional)
o Set time automatically: (unchecked)
AirPort > Wireless
o Wireless Mode: Join a wireless network
o Network Name: <existing AEBS's wireless network>
o Wireless Security: <select the encryption type of the existing wireless network>
o Wireless Password: <enter the existing wireless network password>
o Verify Password: <re-enter the existing wireless network password>
Music
o Enable AirTunes (checked)
o iTunes Speaker Name: <enter desired speaker name>
o iTunes Speaker Password: (optional)
o Verify Password: (optional)
o Click Update to write the new settings to the AX
In iTunes:
iTunes > Preferences... > Advanced > General
o Look for remote speakers connected with AirTunes (checked)

  • Pathfinder question: Is there a way to properly use trim on gradient shapes?

    If you try to Trim a gradient shape in illustrator the result is actually Divide. Is there a way to trim gradient shapes? Like an option to set or a workaround? The only way I found is to set the shapes to full color, then trim, then put the gradient in it. But I'm looking for a way to speed the process.

  • HT4061 Is there any way of not using iTunes, and keeping it off my system

    Can we get rid of iTunes ,,,,, and stop using it

    There is no other way to put content on your iPad without using iTunes. There is 3rd party software to let you copy media content and other data, but installing and syncing apps can only be done by iTunes.

  • HT5312 i need help with the security questions is there some way to get you to remind me what they were from e-mail or other wise

    I need help with the security Questions is there some way to get you to remember them by e-mail of other wise

    Read the HT5312 page that you posted from, it has instructions for how to reset them i.e. if you have a rescue email address set up on your account then steps 1 to 5 half-way down that page should give you a reset link.
    If you don't have a rescue email address then you will need to contact iTunes Support / Apple in your country to get the questions reset.
    Contacting Apple about account security : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5699
    When they've been reset (and if you don't already have a rescue email address) you can then use the steps half-way down the HT5312 page that you posted from to add a rescue email address for potential future use

  • Is there a way to "mix" the nodes and leaves of the tree so if they are at the same level, they will display in a specified order.

    Is there a way to "mix" the nodes and leaves of the tree so that even if they are at the same level (1,2,3...), they will display in a specified order (via sort sequence, alphabetical, etc.).
    History:
    We are using the Tree UI element to display/manage a material bom interface. We seem to be running into an issue with displaying the nodes/leaves of the tree.. regardless of the order that the context is built (which is currently the order of the exploded BOM from from CS_BOM_EXPL_MAT_V2), the bom is displayed with the nested boms at the top of each level and the single materials below them. For example. If  TK1 contains Material1, Material2, Material3, Kit1(containing component1, comp2, comp3), Material4, Kit2(containing comp4, comp5, comp6), and Material5 (in this order), the tree will display with the A level node as TK1, the next node as Kit1 (with its subleaves of comp1,comp2,comp3), Kit2(with subleaves of comp4,comp5,comp6), THEN Material1, material2, material3, material4, material5.  Our users are adamant about the items displaying in the correct order (which should be alphabetical based on the description for one report and by location for purposes of inventory for another). I've searched but not been able to locate a similar question. If I've missed it, please point me in the right direction. The users want the tree,  not a "tree" table.  This is our first attempt at the tree, so maybe we're missing something basic?
    TK1
    -Mat1
    -Mat2
    -Mat3
    -Kit1
    --Comp1
    --Comp2
    --Comp3
    -Mat4
    -Kit2
    --Comp4
    --comp5
    --comp6
    -Material5
    displays as
    TK1
    -Kit1
    --Comp1
    --Comp2
    --Comp3
    -Kit2
    --Comp4
    --Comp5
    --Comp6
    -Mat1
    -Mat2
    -Mat3
    -Mat4
    -Mat5

    co-workers said example picture is misleading.. we can make the order work if everything is a "folder" but not a mix of "folders" and "files" (if making a visual reference to the windows browser). i.e - a file is represented as an empty folder.
    TK1    
    . Mat1
    . Mat2
    . mat3
    > kit1   
    .. comp1
    .. comp2
    .. comp3
    . mat4
    > kit2
    .. comp4
    .. comp5
    .. comp6
    . mat5
    displays at
    TK1
    > kit1
    .. comp1
    .. comp2
    .. comp3
    > kit2
    .. comp4
    .. comp5
    .. comp6
    . mat1
    . mat2
    . mat3
    . mat4
    . mat5
    we can make it work if everything is a folder. This is our current workaround.
    TK1
    > mat1
    > mat2
    > mat3
    v kit1 (when expanded)
    .. comp1
    .. comp2
    .. comp3
    > mat4
    > kit2 (when not expanded)
    > mat5

  • Is there a way to remove existing music and upload new from a new itunes account without loosing previous apps. Itouch 32gb, generation: I don't know, has no camera...

    Ok, so. My Uncle recently gave my family an itouch that he had owned previously. Which meant that it came complete with applications and music and such. But as I found out my uncle has a very different taste in music than us, so I am trying to add my music from My itunes account. But he already has 1620 different songs on there, some of which I would like to keep and others not so much. Is there a way to keep the applications, and some of the music, while removing many of the songs???? Feel free to ask anymore clarifying questions.
    Thanks.

    You should restore the iPod to factory settings/new iPod and add/purchase your own media. The media did not transfer with the iPod hardware. Using it would be stealing.

  • Ok so I cant open my Itunes due to Windows Error 2 and the message says to uninstall and re-install Itunes but I'm pretty sure that would wipe the library right? Is there any way to fix the problem and keep my library?

    Ok so I cant open my Itunes due to Windows Error 2 and the message says to uninstall and re-install Itunes but I'm pretty sure that would wipe the library right? Is there any way to fix the problem and keep my library?

    Hi neffn!
    I have an article for you that can help you go through that process of uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes. If you have Windows 7, you will want to see this article:
    Removing and reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows Vista or Windows 7
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1923
    and if you are using Windows XP, you will want to reference this article:
    Removing and Reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows XP
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1925
    Note that, as it says in those articles:
    iTunes Store purchases or songs imported from CDs are saved in your My Music folder by default and are not deleted by removing iTunes. While it is highly unlikely that you will lose any contents of your iTunes Library when following these steps, it is always a good idea to ensure that your iTunes library is backed up. If you're unsure how to backup, see iTunes: Back up your iTunes library by copying to an external hard drive.
    Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. Have a good one!
