I'm going to take my SBRadio with us for a short trip. We are staying at a B&B that has wifi.
I am unsure how to create a connection to get my Radio to play with mySB.com. Also, is it possible to get a connection to LMS?
Thank you for some directions.

Someone else just asked a similar question:

In short, if the wifi at the B&B does not require additional authentication (e.g. a page where you have to enter your last name and room number) then you should be able to connect to mysqueezebox.com. Connecting to your local LMS is another matter, however. Here's an old guide:

It's a little outdated but will give you the basic idea. The ports you need to open should be forwarded for UDP and TCP. If you are only going to be gone a few days you can probably skip the stuff about DDNS. You'll need to leave your server powered on. If your library is lossless bandwidth can sometimes become a problem (e.g. stuttering).

Radio > Settings > Advanced > Networking > Switch to MySB.com
You can try it now while you are at home, just so you can get familiar with how it switches and where the menu items are located.

Make it easier - at the Switch option hit the + button and add the option to the Home menu
