I have the following network setup:
Netgear <--> Netgear HDX111 <--> Apple Airport Express router (ethernet over power) (192.168.0.1) (192.168.0.9) DHCP: 10.0.1.2-200
I'm using the Airport Express (AE) for wireless access in my living room and music. The music is streamed from a computer plugged into the router to the stereo plugged into the AE. I want to use Apple's Remote app on my iPhone to control the music on the computer. However, the network created by the AE is in a different address space so iTunes can't see it.
Using the manual setup in Apple's AirPort Utility program, I can change the beginning and ending DHCP addresses (AirPort Utility -> Internet -> DHCP). The Netgear router has its DHCP space set up to allow addresses between 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.51. Be default, the Airport Express is on 10.0.x.y; I'd like it to use the space of 192.168.0.100 - 192.168.0.200. When I do this, AirPort Utility reports "The DHCP range you have entered conflicts with the WAN IP address of your Apple wireless device."
With my laptop, I can connect to the shared drives on my computer (laptop [ip: 10.0.1.2] connecting to a folder on the PC [ip: 192.168.0.3]) so I know I can see my machine through the network.
- AirPort: 6.3
- iTunes: 188.8.131.52
- Remote app: 1.2.1 (11)
Is there a way to have my wireless devices connected through the AE in the same IP range (192.168.x.y) as the rest of my network?
Or, is there a way to get iTunes to look across an IP range for the Remote software?
