I currently have a router which connects my MAC/PC/Xbox360/PS3. The MAC is connected wirelessly.

I just purchased the Airport Express and want to use the iTunes feature with my stereo.

How in the world do I accomplish this?

I tried the setup for Airport Express but not sure what to select? It seems to want to subtract my current router connection and build a new one?

Can I keep my current router connections and then add Airport Express which connects MAC to Airport Express and then use iTunes with my stereo.

Thanks in advance.

Go to the Airport Utility, click on your Airport Express and configure like so (though obviously you don't want to connect to my network - unless yours is also called Funky Town).

Hmmm I have set it up as suggested. I unplugged the express and plugged it back in but still get the amber light "blinking"?

Question: I don't have any ethernet cable connected to the express from my dlink router.

I can connect wirelessly correct?

Thanks
