Okay...

I've got a SonicWall TZ 170 with a pretty default configuration...
We have internet access on both the WLAN and LAN, but the when the airtunes airport express is joined to the wireless nobody can see it, so i enabled the LAN port on it, and people on the LAN can see it, but not on the WLAN...  I have iTunes music sharing on my Macbook Pro which is on the LAN and people on the WLAN can't see it... but if i go on the WLAN, they still can't see it...

as you can guess, i'm rather confused...

Any help is appreciated!

Do you have lan to wlan firewall access rules enabled? Are you using enhanced firmware?

Insure that a DHCP scope is configured for the WLAN on the Network > DHCP Server page.
 
Delete and recreate the DHCP scope for the WLAN on the Network > DHCP Server page.

Change the channel on the Wireless > Settings page of the SonicWALL

Also set the sonicwall to open system for testing.

Update

I have done the steps in jasonpaine's suggestions, other than setting the sonicwall to open system for testing.  It is very important that this network remain extremely secure...

could the problem be that wireless DHCP is assigning 172. addresses and the LAN is assigning 10.10. addresses?

With sonicwall wireless you need the wireless and wired lans to have different ip subnets as you mention above.

inspirednetworks,

I'm having the same issue with a TZ 170 on 3.2.3.0-6e firmware and an Airport Express on 7.3.2 firmware.  How did you get this to work properly 18 months ago?

Thanks,

Alex

I actually ended up not using the SonicWall wireless, and instead just bought a Linksys WRT54GL and am using it as an access point.... not as secure, but much easier considering this was just a home setup.
