Hello to all, dear forum people.
I am very simple / beginner user of Volumio and Pi. I have a iMac computer that I am using for streaming music (Tidal and my own files) to the Pi by Volumio software.
Unfortunately, recently my router from Spectrum has broke and these guys at Spectrum are not longer making models that broadcast in 2.4 and 5 GHz, but only one band, and there is no way to chose any longer. Long story short - at this point I am not able to use my Volumio on my Pi since it does take only 2.4 GHz band.
Question : should I purchase a third party router in order to get my 2.4 GHz back to Volumio streaming needs OR I can simply purchase a newer version of Pi (3+ or even 4) and use it on 5GHz. Will Volumio software run on newer Pi on 5GHz or I am making it all too complicated.?
Please help, in very much in need for help on this matter
