Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an airport express attached to my living room speakers that is linked to my wireless network and can stream music from my IMac in another room. This only works for itunes though. How could I use the same setup to hear youtube, pandora, or other streaming audio output via an airport express? Thanks!

For that you need to open all ports for those application . For that access your airport express with ip address in internet explorer then go to NAT and open all port for you tube and other application. Then it will work fine. Also check firewall service of airport express then make sure ports used for yo tube and other application are not block. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

    I'm on a Mac and not using IE.
    How do you access ports??
    I'm not sure I follow here. Where on a site can I find that ie: Pandora or Youtube?

  • samsunjek Aug 03, 2010

    What is NAT?

  • samsunjek Aug 03, 2010

    NAT is already enabled.

  • It is NAT Network address translation.
    you can set port forwarding and open port or block port for used application.
    Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

  • You can access it with any browser.
    Like mozila or safari too.
    Then access it with below method.
    Connect your router to computer with ethernet lan cable.
    Then you can access it with below ip or
    Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password' or "1234"
    Then you can see configuration page of router.
    Click on advanced and NAT then open tcp and udp for application you can see it in drag n drop box there.
    Then save and restart router.
    Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

  • samsunjek Aug 03, 2010

    It just lists NAT and 'enabled' is checked

  • Check in NAT and make sure tcp and udp ports for you tube and other sites are open also turn off firewall for some times then check.

  • samsunjek Aug 03, 2010

    Don't have any idea where to do that. :(

  • samsunjek Aug 03, 2010

    All that I can do in advanced wireless settings is enable it and in security settings firewall is off already.

  • In firewall of router or NAT .

  • samsunjek Aug 03, 2010

    Might be getting closer!
    ... should 'spi firewall protection' be enabled or disabled?
    ...Under internet filter which boxes should be checked:

    draw_table(MAINFUN,"Internet Filter");


    document.write("Filter Anonymous Internet Requests")Filter
    Anonymous Internet Requests


    document.write("Filter Multicast")Filter


    document.write("Filter Internet NAT Redirection")Filter
    Internet NAT Redirection


    document.write("Filter IDENT (Port 113)")Filter
    IDENT (Port 113

  • Disable it then save settings and restart router.
    Then check.

  • samsunjek Aug 03, 2010

    Under application and gaming should I change any port range forwarding settings?
    Or just change allow/enable under security?

  • samsunjek Aug 03, 2010

    Uncheck filter anonymous internet requests?

  • Change also in application and sharing and check firewall settings too.
    open ports n check.

I'm having trouble finding a reliable software to download that will enable me to play youtube/slacker/pandora (non- itunes music) on my Mac and listen through my stereo using my Airport Express,...

Welcome to Fixya community.

Please try download and Install MacTube Player to play Youtube video or music... Let me know the result please...

Also to play the music in stereo receiver please follow below steps.

  1. Plug in the Apple AirPort Express into a power outlet near the stereo. Connect an audio cable from the audio port on the AirPort Express to the audio in port on your stereo. If your stereo has a different sized audio port than the 3.5 mm one on the AirPort Express, you will need to use an adapter to connect it.
  2. Plug in an ethernet cable from the AirPort Express to your computer or wireless router for a wired connection. For a wireless connection, connect the AirPort Express to your existing home network, or use a computer with a wireless network adapter to connect directly to the AirPort Express.
  3. Connect to the AirPort Express with your computer as directed in the manual to run the setup with the AirPort utility. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  4. Open iTunes and play the music to your stereo. There should be a pop up in the lower right corner after you run the Airport utility.
Let me know how far you could able to reach in a result. Our expert friends are here anytime to solve your issue.

Thanks once again for joining us.

Imac to finding airport express. other computer

Several steps to try.
1) Make sure your iMac Airport card is powered on. You can do that with the Airport icon in your menu bar (looks like a pie wedge), or go to System Preferences / Networking / Airport and make sure Airport is on (also, enable "Show Airport Status in Menu Bar" to get the handy icon).
2) Temporarily move your iMac as close as possible to the Airport Express. Pull down the Airport icon and see if the name of your network shows up. If it doesn't, you have a bad Airport card in your iMac. Otherwise...
3) Move your iMac back to where it was. See if the Airport icon still shows your network's name. If not, you may have a bad Airport antenna in your iMac, or you may simply have too many intervening walls or be at too far a distance.

Attempting to connect new Acer netbook to existing Mac network

Had the same problem. What i did was in the Airport Configuration program goto "Airport" then to "Wireless" and then to "Wirelesee options" In this menu deselect "Use wide channels". Also i decreased the power of the 5.0 Ghz transmission, because i don't use it yet. But i think the "Wide channels" is the reason of the problem. It is a bit weird thoug, on my Airports Guest acount with no password and incryption, the Acer One loged on perfectly, but on my private network with WPA2 it did not. Aparantly the Guest network does not use "Wide Channels" Hope this helps, but take care, maybe the menu's are called differendly because i had to translate them from Dutch. Good luck.

Airport express streams audio for a short period then quits

Make sure that your setup for the Express is set to "join the network" and not extend.
Also remember that with wireless technology there can be interference from microwaves, phones, etc.
If you are running programs that use a lot of bandwidth, this will cause the drop outs as well.

If you have a newer Express, another cure can be to use the 5GHz band for the broadcast channel.

I can't connect apple airport expresses with a siemens 587 route

Login to your airport express using Apple's airport utilities (either in it's current configuration or after resetting it).

Using the airport utility do not choose manual setup, just select continue.

Adjust (as required) the airport express station name and password and select continue.

Select "I have a wireless network and I want to add AirPort Express or replace an existing device on my network and select continue.

Select I want Airport Express to wireless join my current network and select continue.

Choose if you want to extent the rance of your network or just join the network and select continue.

Choose the network you wish to join... etc etc etc....

You should be fine.

Soundcast act 211 wireless audio system wireless interference w/airport

I'm not familiar with this product but my guess would be that the wireless signal from the audio transmitter is either overriding the wireless in your room.

You might want to consider going to a bluetooth system. It's range is only 30 ft and it doesn't impact wi-fi equipment.

Airport Express, Bonjour Printing Does Work With Leopard

In the setup of the Airport network settings, you have to make sure that AppleTalk is actually turned on (or the box is checked). When using Mac's with Leopard and you use both the ethernet port and airport off and on, the OS tends to deactivate AppleTalk. Its not a set thing, just random.

New wireless network - now my airport express and airtunes does not work

Hi I was searching this site for a solution to a problem I am having and came across your post. I had the same issue and what I did was reset my airport express to factory settings (detailed in manual) - this enabled the Airport extreme to find/pair with it.
