SqueezeBox over Wi-fi
« on: July 20, 2008, 05:51:35 pm »
Hi.

I was wandering if it is possible to use a squeezebox over wi-fi. It would be useful because then I can can plug it and some speakers into the plugs on my patio and then listen to music because then I don't have to have a big long CAT5 cable running inside and everyone saying,"What's that cable for?"

Thanks!

As I know there is no difference between CAT 5 and WiFi connection for Squeezebox. I use it over WiFi even in Plutohome.

We also use them over CAT5 and WiFi without any problem at all.

...by the way this is the wrong place to ask this question... try the 'Users' forum ;-)
