I have been using headphones with an external USB sound card, but the sound card broke today, and my other audio ports are messed up.

I have an iPhone, and I know that a computer with a wireless card can stream it's audio to an iPhone, but can a computer without a wireless card (on an ethernet connection) use this or a similar service to send audio to an iPhone? Maybe even a tethered iPhone, because I can do that.


maybe look into airfoil and its iOS companion app?

  • yes, this looks like exactly what I need.. do you know if airfoil will work with a computer that does not have a wireless connection so the computer is connected to the internet via ethernet? – FALL3N Jan 18 '12 at 3:50
  • i don't know for sure, i did some preliminary googling but couldn't find a definitive answer. I know this is a cop out, but why not try the trial version? – segiddins Jan 18 '12 at 4:11
  • I tried the trial version, but it just had the problem I though it would have: since the computer is not on the same network as the iPhone, it has no way of finding the iPhone as a place to send sound to... can I tether the iPhone to the computer, and somehow many a computer to computer network that way? – FALL3N Jan 18 '12 at 4:50
  • i doubt it, sorry. – segiddins Jan 18 '12 at 23:56
