    Hi all,

    My apologies if this is covered elsewhere, but I haven't been able to find a topic that answers my question - if there is one please let me know.

    I would like to use my AE purely for remote speakers for itunes. This works fine if I select the AE as my network via Airport on my macbook, but then this means that I can't access my wireless modem and therefore the internet.

    Any hints on how to select the AE purely for itunes and still be able to go only online?

    Thanks very much in advance!

    Cheers,

    Jules

    In the configuration for the AE, you want to set it to "Join a Network" so that it's just another device on your network. I have mine setup that way for Airtunes.
