    I am trying to do itunes sharing with my powerbook and a pc with xp, with the pbook connected thru the snow airport. It works fine when they are both wired thru my linksys router, but when i use the pbook with airport, it doesnt work. any thoughts?

    its because the Airport is acting like a natural router. You need to do some port forwarding on your routers to get them to connect but that might not be possible. I have two routers, regualar linksys router, and a wireless linksys router. The wireless has its WAN plug into a computer port on the regular one. So now the PC that is connected just to the regular router can't talk to my PC and Macs that are connect to the Wireless. So the only hope to get by this is to set port forwarding or open ports on the routers for traffic to go though.
