To all that might be having this same issue, I have confirmed with Apple that it is a problem (and the case has been escalated). In a nutshell, I am trying to stream music from my Macbook Pro to the network which will then talk to the airport express boxes.
The Macbook Pro has an N-airport extreme card.
The Dlink Router (DIR-655) has the Draft-N 2.0 spec.
The Airport expresses are connected to my network.
I have no problems using my Powerbook G4 with a 802.11g-equipped wireless card in this situation.
My Macbook Pro, iTunes SEES the airport express, but when trying to play a song, the track sits at 0:00 and does not move(play).
My Macbook Pro has no issues connecting to the internet, it just cannot stream music through.
I have confirmed that the Macbook Pro CAN stream music to the airport express when they are on their own network (taking the Dlink router out of the setup).
Why or why did Apple not include gigabit ethernet on their wireless base station!!!!!
If anybody has or knows of a fix, I would be glad to hear it. If anybody has this configuration, but it works with a different wireless router with gigabit ethernet and Draft-N wireless, I would love to hear from you as well!
Macbook Pro (Core 2 Duo)   Mac OS X (10.4.9)  
I have been having problems with my dlink dir 625 n router as well and after months of problems I finally fixed the problem. The funny thing was that everything worked fine with my imac... it was the macbook pro's airport that wasn't seeing the router correctly.
I just enabled wap2 on the router as the security setting and for some reason now everything is running as it should, upload and connectivity are great!
Hope this helps
