I've got a very frustrating problem going on. Just picked up an Airport Express for the sole purpose of streaming Audio. Easy setup out of the box, put it in 'bridge' mode, joined my TC wireless network without issue, configured via the Airport Utility, no biggie. All this while connected to my wireless network on my iMac via it's AP card. Once everything is configured, I disconnected from the wireless network (turned off airport) and hooked up my GB wired connection to my TC. Faster for backups, access to my server, etc etc. When the iMac is connected via wireless to the network, I can access the AE just fine; but when I switch to wired connection, I can not even get into it via the Airport Utility, just says "Reading the Airport Express Configuration".... forever. Switch from wired to wireless... in with no problem. I've also noticed very slow access (LONG pauses before the AE starts playing or it just wont play) in iTunes when wired vrs wireless. Now my wired connection to my TC is FAST, exactly as you would expect it to be with Gigabit Ethernet. I can copy and pull 2 gig files from my server in less than a minute, so I'm definitely running at excellent GB speed. So... anyone have any thoughts or insight on what in the world might be going on with this? If I have to give up my Gigabit connection to my TC to get AE to work, then that is a deal killer (which sucks because I have some Audioengine 5's coming for the AE setup!)... Any help is greatly appreciated!
