I will be purchasing a SB3 but need to know what other hardware that I should purchase. I now have DSL service which comes with a wireless router that is directly connected to my computer. Will I need an additional router to transmit to the SB?
Thanks

I am assuming it is setup whereby the wireless router is also a ADSL modem and that your computer is connected to the router via ethernet and a standard network cable?

If so as long as the router supports 802.11g and your router is on on this list http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?RouterStatus as working then you will be fine. If it is not on the list then you will in all probability still be fine. If it is listed as problematic or as not working then you may have to buy a new router.

Other than that you shouldn't have to buy any other equipment other than a beautiful spanking new SB3.

I have been reading posts about moving my CDs over to my hard drive and I seem to be getting a little confused. I use ITunes now to play the web radio tunes. What software should I use to rip the CDs to my hard drive? A couple recommended Flac? but is this an add-on to another program? Need a little direction.....
Thanks
Mike

The Wiki is your friend! see this guide for beginners http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?BeginnersGuide it has a section on ripping CD's which should answer your questions.

What it sounds like is that you need to read the specific sections on Ripping and Formats

http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?BeginnersGuideToRipping
http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.cgi?BeginnersGuideToFileFormats

Quickly though you will need to use some software such as iTunes or EAC (Exact Audio Copy) and select the format you want to rip in i.e. MP3, FLAC, WMA each has it's advantages and disadvantages.

I know it is confusing at first but it is well worth it.
