Customer Question
I have a Belkin G...
I have a Belkin G wireless router on my Comcast modem. Can I get Pandora to stream from my desktop (Win XP) through the router and by using an appropriate software with some kind of wireless receiver hardware (suggestions?) listen to it through my audio system? I would rather not have to purchase something like Squeezebox to do this.

If I am understanding what you are asking correctly, you want to stream Pandora from your desktop to your audio system wirelessly?

 

This is possible, but a lot depends on your audio system setup.

 

Does the computer you would be streaming from have bluetooth capabilities?

No, the computer is a Dell XPS Desktop 200.

My audio setup is basic--high end (at the time)--but basic in the sense of doing something like this. I did run Logitech's Squeezebox with it which I no longer possess, so I was hoping for some alternate way of doing the same thing.
Tech Support Specialist: Tom K, Information Systems Manager replied 8 years ago

Well it basically seems that no matter what you will have to purchase something to get this set up working from what I have researched.

 

There are a number of ways to do this, like installing a bluetooth device on your computer and then attaching a bluetooth audio receiver to your speaker system.

 

However, the most efficient method seems to be to utilize a wireless audio adapter, which one can be found here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815290012&nm_mc=OTC-Froogle&cm_mmc=OTC-Froogle-_-Video+Devices+++TV+Tuners-_-IOGEAR-_-15290012

 

This device plugs into your audio equipment and then wirelessly connects to your computer to pick up audio signals. From this you would be able to go to Pandora, play music, and it would be sent to the audio adapter wirelessly that is connected to your speakers and play your music from there. It has a 30 ft. range, so there is plenty of room to work with.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
