This is what I have been doing for years and it is not difficult. Over the years, I have changed cabling, NAS boxes, routers, switches and JRMC hosts. Throughout all these variables, the problems have been few and minor. Setting fixed IP addresses for the NAS and the host devices helps a lot.I am trying to set up a NAS, with Jriver and get a long network connection from one end of the house so the other (the internet entry and listening room are on opposite ends of a long house.) I know I won't have much trouble running wires and setting up hardware. But there is always some software switch you never heard of that prevents the whole damn project from running.
