    Howdy,

    What's the easiest way to run an Netgear MP101 on a home network with wireless router without having to turn my PC? I've heard of NAS(?) devices that can plug straight into the router and be used as the music source ... is this right? And if so ... any recommendations? I was thinking of using my dads old laptop as leaving it on would use far less power than my desktop, but I'd need to invest in a wireless card and a larger hard drive. Rather than put my money into that I want to explore other options ...

    Looks good. Am I right in thinking that I'd also need to plug in an external drive?

    Any other options? Any "all in one" solutions?
