I will connect Ethernet cable from my modem+router to Raspberry Pi. And I will connect external HDDs etc to RPi via a powered USB hub. Now if I want to stream media from the connected HDD, does the RPi needs a WiFi? Because I will be connecting to this network over WiFi only, on my iPad or my laptop.
IOW, does my raspberry pi needs a WiFi if I want to stream media present in HDD which is connected to Pi over USB?
