I am entirely confused. I am trying to set up airtunes on my imac G5 so that itunes can play on the computer speakers as well as an unconnected living room stereo. I do not have an airport wireless card, nor an extreme base station. I do have two airport express units. The mac employees told me that through some daisy chain sequence that I could get the second stereo to play with just these two items. I am using a DSL line whose router is currently connected to a wireless router. Does anyone know how I can make this work with my current tools? Did I get bad information and simply now need to acquire either a wireless card or airport extreme?

Any and all assitance in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Yes the computer is plugged into the wireless router, as well as the primary airport unit.

Maybe you should only plug your computer into the airport express and not into the router and then, in internet connections, set up airport express as your connection

I believe what you are looking for starts on pg 14 of the manual for Airport Express units.

Doesn't the airport express have 1 Ethernet connection? i don't think you can plug your computer into that unless you link it wirelessly to your router

The hard wired router doesn't matter here. You have to have a wireless card in you computer for this to work.
