Using your iPod® as a networking device for Wireless Home Audio (WHA) devices

With the latest firmware version of Wireless Home Audio (WHA) devices, your iPod® will be detected as a network device.  Every WHA device and the Media Player would be able to detect your iPod® as a network device.  This will allow you to wirelessly play and control music on your iPod® from any WHA device in every room of your home.

This article will show you how you can use your iPod® as a networking device for Wireless Home Audio (WHA) devices.  In this example, we will be using the Conductor (Linksys DMC350) or Director (Linksys DMC250).

To do this follow the steps below:

Step 1:
Connect your iPod® to the DMC350 or DMC250 using the Linksys MCCI40 Docking Station for iPod®

Step 2:
Double-click on Media Player  on your desktop.

Step 3:
Once the Wireless-N Digital Music Center screen appears, your iPod® will be listed on the Zones panel as one of the network devices.  You can access your music stored on your iPod® from here and play it to a specific WHA device.

NOTE:  In this example, the iPod® name is Kitchen Conductor.

Your iPod® will also be listed as one of the Media Sources, in the Media Source panel.
