Hi everyone...

I am a complete novice when it comes to wifi or wireless anything and am wondering, in addition to a Squeezebox Duet, what other hardware would I need to get a wireless music system up and running?

When I check in my "about this computer" file it says I have Airport Extreme(currently turned off) but I am wondering if this is sufficient?

Thanks in advance for your help!

It is recommended that the computer running SqueezeCenter be plugged into ethernet to your wifi router. This is because the music stream to the Squeezebox Receiver would have to travel over the air twice if the iMac is on wifi (airport).

The first thing you should do is install SqueezeCenter on your computer. Once that is working, then you can start the Duet setup.
