So, you have some music, and you want people to access it locally via
wire or wireless, is that right?

You should be able to just get a router that has a USB port, assuming
the bilt in firmware allows the sort of sharing, including any restrictions you
want to enforce -- no need to bother with the routing bit.

You could do worse than the TP-Link TL-WR1043ND

I note that they have a new version (v2) in a curved, black box.  I've
only used the older white rectangular model, but have liked them.  Then
again, I've not really looked at the stock firmware, as I generally use

This may give you some inkling of what you can do with it:


The full manual's on their support site too, but I'd guess that the
simplest thing to do is buy one from a retailer that makes returns easy,
give it a try, and send it back if you don't get on with it.

Cheers, Phil.
