I'm running Windows 10 on a Lenovo laptop with wireless routing through a BT HomeHub 4 unit.


I have two Airport Expresses in the house, used solely to stream music from iTunes/Tuneblade through them to my stereo systems.


Both Airport Express stations can be found through my HomeHub Manager - they are visible as connected to the network with MAC and IP addresses.


However, connection to the two Express stations is very dodgy.  The best I get  is when the laptop has had a fresh boot-up.  After a while though, especially after Hibernation, the Expresses can't be found by iTunes or Tuneblade, and neither by my iPhone or iPod Touch.  However, at all times they are still showing as connected to the HomeHub.


I can't figure out where the problem is, since it's not just my laptop that can't find them but also my phone and ipod.  And it seems weird that the router knows they're there but software can't connect to them.


Any ideas?


Thanks in advance.
