How do I set up a mobile wifi router (LAN), and a wifi windows machine?
The software of choice is Airfoil. http://rogueamoeba.com/airfoil/ For it to send audio, it needs to be installed on a windows or mac computer (not cell phone or tablet). Smart phones can then receive the audio signal.
I need help designing a road worthy wifi router and windows machine to be the moving hub of this wifi broadcasting party. Extra points for durability, signal strength and thrift.
Please be detailed, because I am only vaguely knowledgeable of wifi, and I'm not that bright.
Please note that I am well versed with other options for sending an audio signal. I have reasons for being this specific.
Without your help, I would acquire a used netbook with a solid state drive running windows (maybe about $200), grab a wifi router (I have a few older ones lying around) run it all on an inverter and give it a go. Because I am a mac guy, I don't know how to do anything, like how to set up a local area network.... (I usually jam in a cable from a high-speed modem).... we are not doing that on a bicycle, so I'm a bit fuzzy on that part.
I am well versed with power supplies, and willing for the range to be less than ideal at first... (that can be improved later)
I am just looking to get a trial of this system up and running.
I am most appreciative of your help, and I plan on writing a full article on what I've learned, if successful~
PS, Photo not of me, but these people are obviously awesome, and will love what we are doing.
