LN52B750 via Airport Express

by lales27 / July 3, 2009 7:27 AM PDT

I've gotten it semi-connected directly to my Airport Express - Mac Address, IP Address, Subnet, Gateway all check. But then Gateway Ping has an X. I don't see any settings in the Airport Express Control Panel for Gateway. Also, the main router is an Airport Extreme. The Express was used for AirTunes, but since it's right by the TV, I thought I'd take a shot.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks HDTech - but not the answer
by lales27 / July 3, 2009 3:26 PM PDT

Thanks for the link HDTech, however it seems to be a different situation. First, the link is for an Airport Extreme and I'm using an Airport Xpress. Second, I'm connecting directly from the Airport Xpress to the LN52B750 via the Ethernet port on the rear of the TV (is this correct?) - I think the other user is using the wireless capabilities of the Blu-Ray player. Otherwise it appears that my settings are pretty much the same.

I saw another post on Amazon of a user successfully hooking up his Extreme to the TV set, but I'd rather not have to rearrange my entire physical setup just for this. Time Warner is scheduled for Sunday and I suppose I can move the Extreme at that time, but I have a sneaking suspicion that this won't be the end of any issues.

Can any Mac users tell me where to find Gateway settings on the Airport Xpress?

Gateway settings
by nenezzy / July 4, 2009 2:53 AM PDT

I am an dual band airport extreme and an old G extreme. I am using my G as WDS remote, and it can stream 1080p WMV/MOV file without any problem. For your question, you should set your gateway to the ip of the main router, usually 10.X.X.1 or 192.168.X.1. If you provide more detail, may be some body can help u further.

Benefits of the LinkStick Wireless vs Ethernet

In reply to: Gateway settings

Thanks. I did try those settings without success. There's a thread on the Apple Support Forum about using the Express for dual duty with both iTunes and Ethernet.

So I'm curious, is there a problem using a simple Ethernet cable if the modem were moved nearby? Also, if all things are equal, is there a benefit to using the Samsung LinkStick Adapter over an Ethernet cable?

Thanks for everyone's patience.
