I am currently using a Three MiFi at home, which does a perfectly adequate job of connecting my Macbook and my girlfriend’s iPhone to the internet.
A couple of days ago I bought a B&W Zeppelin Air, hoping to use the AirPlay function to wirelessly stream music from iTunes on the Macbook to the speaker. Can I get it to work? No
I followed the Zeppelin wifi setup procedure exactly, and as far as I can see everything has worked. When I turn the Zep on, the AirPlay icon appears in iTunes, and when I turn it off it goes away. On the 192.168.1.1 router setup page I can see three devices connected – my Macbook, iPhone, and another unnamed device whose MAC number matches that of the Zeppelin, so I pretty much know its connected to the network. It just doesn’t actually make any sound when the iPhone connects to it, and when I try to select the Zeppelin from iTunes on the Macbook it just says ‘Connecting...’ for ages, and then doesn’t.
I’ve tried it on my parents’ network, which worked fine, and I’ve tried it on a friends’ Vodafone MiFi in my house, which also worked fine. Incredibly frustrating!
Both networks it worked with were WPA2, mine appears to be WPA. I tried changing it to WPA2 but it still didnt work.
I'm at the upper reaches of my techy knowledge now, hope someone can help
