Hi all,

I've purchased an AEBS & and extra Airport Express 2 weeks ago. (Old express was purchased about a month ago), purely for wireless Audio using itunes and its song request feature.

They are successfully connected to one another as such:
AEBS: extend network option selected
AE: join network (join AEBS network)
Using WPA2/personal encryption
Channel: 2 (free Channel
Distance: all three units are within 30feet of each other.

AEBS: Office
AE 1: Room 1 (Bose speakers via Amp)
AE 2: Room 2 & wireless printer. (Bose speakers via Amp)

When using just one AE I can run sound with no problems but when running both at the same time, it causes the music to cutout a fair bit after about 2-5 minutes.

I couldn't setup WDS, my AEBS doesn't have any WDS options on it as shown in the tutorial on apple's support page. Could this be the problem?

Any help would be appreciated. I can provide more details of my setup if needed, just unsure of what I should provide.

Not sure what u mean by wireless printer - do u have a printer connected to AE 2 by USB lead? My printer is wireless but it has its own IP address.
Try running your set up without any printer to see if you get the cutouts.
