Ken Clarke shared a solution that worked for some people and didn’t work for others. The ones that it didn’t work for perhaps have two routers/switches. Also this can have problems because of this.

Hi Guys

This is a quick post with a problem & solution.

I’ve been searching for ages tonight to find a solution to my problem:
iTunes suddenly cannot connect to my Airport Express Speakers” and could not find one answer on here, only a mixture of replies all over the net.

So, just incase some people are still looking for an answer:
What I did…
1. Go to System Preferences, Network.
2. Click Advanced, on the TCP/IP tab, set “Configure IPv6” to Off.
Open up Airport Utility, go to the Music tab, set a password (I did this just for the sake of seeing whether iTunes noticed that the Airport was now password protected, then atleast you know it’s talking!)
3. Open iTunes, go to preferences.
4. Click on the devices tab, untick “Look for remote speakers connected with Airplay, Allow iTunes control from Remote Speakers, Forget All Remotes.
5. Close iTunes
6. Open iTunes, retick “Look for remote speakers connected with Airplay, Allow iTunes control from Remote Speakers, Forget All Remotes.
7. Connect to remote speakers worked!
