I use an apple AirPort Extreme at the router and have two airport expresses in other places in the house. That would set you back about $300 (1 extreme and one 1 express)
The cool thing is that the expresses have audio output so you can hook up speakers to it and stream audio to them. That's how ...

As an auto body shop operator, if you come in and say anything about a lawyer, I won't write you an estimate for damages to your vehicle. I'm not going to court to help you win your law suit. A lot of shops will treat your situation the same as I do, so don't say your attorney needs ...
