|In this article, you will find a complete description of how to make a Wi-Fi internet radio receiver from a router that can play mp3 streams from internet radio stations.
It is also possible to switch between two internet radio stations. We will use OpenWRT firmware installed on the router to create a Wi-Fi internet radio. It is possible to complete this project without using a soldering iron. All the components can be placed inside the router to create a finished device — a Wi-Fi internet radio.
- Any router with a USB port that can be installed with OpenWRT, a Linux-based operating system designed for embedded systems. You can check if your router is compatible with OpenWRT on this page: https://openwrt.org/toh/start.
- A USB sound card that costs $1-$2.
- Any passive (or active) speakers.
- Two patch cords — twisted pair crimped with 8P8C connectors (also known as RJ-45).
- A personal computer.
- Ethernet and Wi-Fi internet connection (optional).
