I quite dont get it.

this is a bit frustrating. You developers should have a quality check by letting women try to configure the system.

they dont like menus that dont make sense and like it easy.

for example.
what is:
Squeezebox. is it the remote or the box conected to my amplifier ( i have duet)
squeezenetwork? that is the software on the computer right?
squeezecenter? is that also the software?

and connections:
does the duet remote conects to the computer directly or does it connects to the squeezebox thing connected to the amp?

That goes for men, too! Even a male engineer, like myself, to be precise!

squeezecenter: software on your own computer
squeezenetwork: Web site, run by Logitech
Squeezebox: The hardware box that connects to your amplifier

And add:
Squeezebox Controller: the "remote" part of the Duet

Also note that Squeezenetwork can also be thought of as a "big SqueezeCenter in the sky" that is run by Logitech.

Sorry, I forgot this one. The Duet remote (aka Squeezebox Controller, or SBC for short) connects to your *router* via WiFi. The router connects to your computer, using the SqueezeCenter (SC) software to tell it what to do. SC then streams music to the router, which relays it to the Squeezebox.

NB. If you don't have a wireless router, then the SBC connects to the computer via the Squeezebox.
