Have a little bit more time on your hands than you originally thought? The DIY Internet Radio might be just the thing for you, where this project will let you play virtually any audio source with the ability to control it directly from your smartphone. The brain behind this project took an Asus WL-520GU and a USB sound card to churn out the final product, a Wi-Fi radio for less than $50. It will rely on the Windows operating system, but those who run on other operating systems can always check out the instructions at MightyOhm instead. While plenty of steps are involved, it isn’t all that difficult to work on although it will involve installing custom firmware on the router, changing and installing more files while setting up an application known as Ario on your computer. If you’ve given it a go and had a happy ending, why not leave a comment?
