how can seting up a network consistantly be the most inscrutible thing ever!!!!!?
I kind of wish there were a way to see what rondezouzs is doing so I could see why my itunes aren't showing up on another computer...

Are they all Macs, or are you trying to share with PC's? To get my XP tower to see my PowerBook's iTunes Library, I had to change the workgroups to be the same and turn off my ZoneAlarm for the internal IP range...but it works well...and I've never seen it not share with another Mac right off the bat. Macs "just work" right? Well, they do until they don't, and then it's impossible to figure out why :-P but I might be able to help.

I think that part of the problem is that I don't compleatly understand the subtleties of my Airport Express basestation. This is complicated by not understanding the subtleties of my two netgear wireless acces points (in particular the part where I can't consistantly log on to their admin page. or the part where one of them crashed during a firmware update, and I really don't think that made anything easier.)
Then there's the part where there's the airport express is connected to the cat-5 wall socket, and I actaully don't know where it goes from there. I assume it goes into the garage and then into a switch, and therefor the house's network, but I don't know the specifics of that other than there's always inconsistent problems with it, and they are different problems for me, my dad, my mom, and my sister, so no one understands the other person's problem, and when ever one tries to demonstrate a problem it dosent happen. (like this morning when I "fixed" my mom's FTP program by doing exactly what she was doing, except it worked for me.) bksdfaalhkbhasdfhkblsdf!!!!
My second Airport express is comming tomorrow, and then I'm going to get to try and set up the wireless relay thing. (like I said, I don't understand how to make it work with the netgear things.)
I think at this point, I need some detailed explanation of all the setup features and specs of the Airport Express. Also, I need to figure out how to translate the personal WPA password into something that my netgear wireless software on my vaio understands, so I can then maybe phaze out the netgear access points compleatly. Cause it's would be kinda stupid to have the macs connect to the Airport, and the PCs connect to the netgar.
Thus ends the basic summary of what's going on.

On a different note, can I see some of the sites you've authored?

Dang. That's a complicated sounding network! Good luck :-P

Well other than the current ones on our portfolio at Reywire.com, (we choose one per quarter), I have also done http://ice.reywire.com for my personal toy that I'm not really producing but pretended I was going to for a class project, http://www.socalmove.com (not the greatest colors...too dark...but not my choice), http://www.ckmstaffing.com ... and a handful of others that I can't think of off the top of my head. And then another handful more that I can think of but they are pretty embarrasing.

P.S. patent pending on WiFi ICE ;-)
