    Hi All,

    Going slowly out of my mind here, any help would be appreciated.

    I have just bought an AirPort Express so i can stream my music to my TV

    All connected to the wireless network, my router (Draytek 2820) has issued it an IP address, the AirPort Utility can see the AirPort, iTunes can see the remote speakers .... everything is telling me its connected and online ..... BUT i can't connect anything to it. the Airport utility keeps giving me ERROR - 6753

    I am running Vista Business.

    I have spoke to Apple this morning who told me it wont work with 3rd party routers so I need to run a cable and create a second wireless network .... defeats the object me thinks. according to them its not designed to join or extend wireless networks... the box however says different!!

    I am an IT engineer so as you can imagine this is giving me the right hump!!

    Thanks in advance.

    It will work apple just will not issue support for 3rd party routers.

    Make sure you are using a fixed IP address then set up port mapping it seems like your router doesn't know how to direct the data this should sort it.
