    Ok, got it. Never personally tried LMS as I never needed it.

    To have one less piece of hardware running and consuming and one less plug in the wall (the router's USB does only give 0.5W).
    And because my router is capable of having additional packages installed, run Perl etc.

    I will surely buy another one that can run OpenWrt.

    > With a Pi for $5 you just plug it back into the new router.

    I don't want to have another (ok, low consumption -but still) piece of hardware running 24/7 as I already have my router running 24/7.

    > But I do understand that fiddling with RPis and Linux is not for everyone.

    That is not my problem. I do actually own a Pi already, but it's designated to other purposes.
    I compiled OpenWrt myself and installed it on my router.
    I do fiddle.

    As it stands now, the best option is to trying to make LMS work on OpenWrt following the instructions for other Linux distributions. In absence of pre-compiled package, I am afraid this project will have to wait at least until Christmas vacations.
    If you succeed let us know.
    I have OpenWRT installed on a Pi which has wifi WAN and built in PPTP connection.
    With squeezelite it would make a great remote portable player but I haven't tried to install squeezelite (yet).

    No. Incorrect. I've used all my players connected to LMS even when mysb.com is down.
