I have one of these. I know it is expensive for just a wifi point but the form factor is brilliant and audio out makes it a very handy bit of kit particularly for travelling (instant wifi in a hotel room for example - well as long as there is a wired connection).

does it work with windows machines

The wifi router bit will work with Windows I would imagine however you may not be able to use the usb printer sharing and wireless audio? Not sure if anyone has written windows apps for it.

Hi.

Right, I'm totally ignorant about things wireless.

I have Xp with a network card installed and broadband connection through a wired router.

What else would I need to make use of this gizmo?

Does this allow me to connect two 'puters wirelessly and send music files to my stereo or do I need to have a wireles connection?

Interesting little device, could be very handy to be able to stream audio wirelessly from your pc to stereo, plus the wi-fi printer sharing is a huge bonus.

According to the Apple site it is compatible with Windows XP & 2000. Printer sharing is done via a program called Bonjour but there is no mention of it in the Apple blurb.

The price drop could be down to this being released next month. Looks nice, although almost double the price!, and adds the ability to share a USB2 harddrive wirelessly as well as being a router and printer point. Although can't see it doing the music sharing

Anyone?

From a quick Google it looks like you can stream music with it also in Windows.

As long as you have a wireless card on the computer you want to stream from that's all you would need to make this work.
