Apple TV 3rd Gen Networking Questions

Hi everyone,

So I have an Apple TV that I am trying to setup to work with my home network. My setup is a Time Capsule hooked up to the cable modem, then an Airport Extreme (attached through ethernet) that is extended the wireless network from that, and an old linksys box that I have disabled the wireless for that I am using to split an ethernet port on the Time Capsule.

The Apple TV is attached to the linksys, but AirPlay doesn't show up on any of my devices (iMac with with ethernet or iPhone with wifi). When the I hook up the Apple TV through wifi then AirPlay does show up. I am guessing that this is caused by the Apple routers assigning an IP address tarted with "10." while the linksys is assigning the Apple TV an IP address starting with "192." Is there any way to fix this?

You need to make sure your Linksys is in "bridge mode."

Your TC IP address should be 192.168.0.1. Your AirPort Extreme should be 192.168.0.2. The Linksys IP address should be 192.168.0.3. You can have both TC and AE running at the same time, but change the channel that the wireless is running on. If you don't change wireless channel, you will have interference from both wireless AP's. what ever you do, just make sure each device has a different IP address. Most devices default to 192.168.0.1. You need to change each device to have a different IP address.

You need to turn off DHCP on the Linksys device.
