Ethernet solution for removing music storage from listening room?


Recommended Posts

My old Linksys RT54G router is struggling to keep up with my family’s appetite for internet connections and bandwidth. As a result, I’ve begun shopping for a new router and found the WRT610N.

What intrigued me about this product is its ability to connect a USB 2.0 drive. Ignoring any need for NAS or multiple access to the drive, would this be an effective solution to remove a USB drive from the listening room, connect it to the router and simply run an Ethernet cable to the computer? Any concerns using this method? Then, I could also test the wireless N and see if it works effectively for streaming. Thoughts appreciated.

I hope there's no strong objection to my effectively re-posting, but hoping for a bit of feedback here. As the music is on a Mac and everyone else in the house is on Windows machines, NAS and sharing not as important.

Thanks
