I am a cruise ship musician looking to network my cabin. I have a lot of Movies, TV, and Music on my hard drive and have a projector and speakers in my cabin… that means a LOT of chords plugged into my computer just to watch tv. I want to simplify by having a router and networked storage. My thought is to get a MyBook Live and plug it into a small router. Ideally this router would be an Airport Express which is also plugged into my speakers. I have read that the express is not really a router and so plugging a MyBook Live into it will do nothing for making my media wireless.
Has anyone had any luck with this? If not what other portable routers do you recommend? I just really like the idea of an airport express as the hub for my speakers (airplay) and media, so I can play ALL of my music through my iPod over the speakers wirelesly.
