    hooked airport up to my stereo to play itunes through it. I plugged it into an aux channel. there was a hum on that channel but also itunes played through every other channel on the stereo, phono, aux 1, cd, tuner,tape all of them + on these channels i had no volume control on the stereo, it just played at the computer volume. I fixed the problem by unplugging my fax/printer which is also connected to airport and has my cordless phone attached.

    question: is there a way i can run the printer at the same time without this problem or do i just work around it, plug, unplug

    Can you not just switch the Airport channel? That might help.

    Get a mains filter.

    Computers are very noisy, and should not really be on the same loop or earth as audio equipment.

    Ferrite beads, supressors, clamps and surge protection should fix the problem. a surge protector may be all you need, they also chuck HF noise and RFI to earth, which is good.
