How Internet Radio Works

How Internet Radio Works

In this diagram the WiFi router (middle left) is connected to the telephone line and connects your broadband, in the normal way, and allows all the other "devices" to connect to the Internet.

The PC (bottom left) is connected by wire as is the Internet radio (top right).  The laptop and the Internet Radio (bottom right) are connected via the WiFi (or radio) link.

This diagram shows 4 different ways to listen to the radio via the Internet.  all devices will work at the same time or will work alone.

To listen to the radio without a computer, only the WiFi router and one of the radios has to be switched on. 

You can of course also listen to the radio on a computer or a laptop.

Most Routers will allow 4 devices to be connected by wire, and 255 devices by WiFi!  However, having too many devices connected may prevent it from working efficiently.

The WiFi Router in the diagram is a Netgear DG834G and can be bought for around £40 - £50.
