    Anyone know where I can find answers (to hard questions) on using an iPod, and using an AirPort with a hub?

    I have a PB (ethernet), a Cube (Airport and ethernet) and iBook (airport use).

    They all can surf the net fine.

    I need to share files (and surf) between all 3 without having to switch between ethernet and Airport (bridging?) - is that possible?

    iPod - 2 itunes playlists (on Cube and iBook) - can I synch them with each other from one terminal?

    anyone with these and solutions would be appreciated.

    thanks.

    I have AirPort 2.X - looks white and graphite to me.

    Cube (has airport) and PB G3 are going into hub.

    iBook with airport.

    Airport is using dialup modem (sorry, best we got).

    Hub is connected to LAN port on Airport.

    Only Cube and PB can see each other in Appletalk Ethernet mode.

    Planning on getting wireless card for PB, so maybe the solution for sharing seamlessly.

    To talk to iBook, I have to put Cube in Airport mode.

    PB cannot talk to iBook at all.

    does that make sense?

    do I have to specify DHCP Client ID? or port map?

    I've got Airport network set using DHCP and NAT (share single IP).

    ps. Airport range is very limited - I can't go further than 5m (16 feet)! Sure, next room is through a concrete wall - but Apple NEVER mentions interference in describing the 50m radius range - very misled.

    call me dumb, but where can I do this:

    Use Appleshare TCP/IP sharing instead. Manually, assign the IPs for knowing which machine is which for easier access.

    thanks.

    oh, is this in the filesharing CP?

    success!

    didn't have to go manual.

    just typed in the given IP, and viola.

    I now just use aliases.

    thanks.

    will now try the airport range problem - got a link for that modification?

    cheers
