Hello Mac Forum Folk,

I would like to remote control an iTunes library which has it's IP address assigned to it by a different router than the iPhone remote.
I am told that Itunes and Remote must have their IP address' assigned from the same router to work....is there a way around this?

I have recently renovated my garden shed and have a stereo which I would like to feed Airport audio and control with my iphone using remote. However my iTunes libarary is stored on my Mac which is in the house.

In my shed I have an Airport Express hardwired to the Wireless router in the house which gives me wifi and assigns the iphone its IP address

However the Mac in the house (with the itunes library) has it's IP address assigned by the wireless router.

The Airport audio into the shed works perfectly, but it would involve me running upstairs to change the tracks.

Is there a way I can get my iphone in the shed to talk to my Itunes in the house even though they are served IP address from different devices?

Hope this makes sense, any help would be much appreciated.

Can Airport Express be set up to work as a repeater? A repeater would essentially act as a switch and not create a subnet. That's your best option there I think.

You dont need the Airport express hardwired into your wireless router.

Put your Airport express in your shed, configure that to connect to your exsisting wireless network in your house, and then you shoud be able to use iTunes using Remote via iPhone, which is also connected to that wifi network.

I have this setup in my bedroom. We have a wireless router downstairs, sending out signal x for example. I have an Airport express base station in my bedroom, connected to that network, My surround sound system is plugged into this via the audio jack.
I simply select *** Airport Express Speakers on the bottom right-hand of the iTunes screen and we're away. I can also use my iPhone to operate iTunes.

I have my Airport Express setup to act as an "extension" to my existing wireless network - it is called WDS (Wireless Distribution System) Mode.
It works like a charm.

Using Airport Utility Manual Setup, highlight the Airport Express and choose "Extend My Existing Network". This will change the Airport Express from creating its own Wireless Network to just "extending" your existing network.
