    Anyone using this yet?

    I am thinking of getting in order to connect to my stereo so that I can play music wirelessly. My question is: I have my desktop hardwired to my wireless router, would I need to install a wireless card on my desktop or just beam through the router?

    To try to explain in a simpler fashion, is my wireless router a one-way thing or two-way?

    I hope I have described this OK!!!!

    I use Airport Extreme. But only for wireless connection to the Internet and printing.

    It works well, but I have no idea about playing music with the technology.

    It also works through the wired network (I wouldn't call that "beaming" though). However, from the one PC I've tried it from, occasionally the music will skip -- not sure why. It works flawlessly from a wireless PowerBook, and from a wired iMac. It's great.
