    I read the following on the french Mac site macbidouille:

    "My girlfriend is a macophile too -- she was having "range" problems with her Airport Extreme base station, and when the Airport Express was announced, was one of the many who ordered it "then end there". She got it yesterday, and the iTunes piece worked OK (any glitch requires iTunes in the Mac to be restarted); but the real killer is that when it is delivering iTunes to her stereo, it STOPS being a network range extension device; it is either on or the other. She spent 2 hours on the phone with Apple tech support before this was "revealed". I may just be naive about the technological aspects -- but this is a complete bummer no matter how you look at it."

    Can anyone who already got his/her Airport Express confirm this? No internet while listening to music?? This would really be a disappointment !!! :( :mad:

    edit: spelling

    (from www.apple.com/airportexpress/airtunes.html)

    this says that the airport express would wirelessly link to the airport extreme WHILE letting you play your music. if it doesn't work, apple will get sued.
