WiFi vs Bluetooth speakers

Does anyone know if someone makes a WiFi (not Bluetooth) speaker that I can connect to my COMCAST router?  I would like to have a portable one that can pickup whatever sound is coming out of my Yamaha WiFi receiver RX-V679. Thanks

So the audio source is your WiFI receiver (aux) and the portable speaker is playing that.

Something like this maybe:

Don't think my message got through.  I don't need to connect anything to my Aux input on the receiver.  All I want to be able to do is find a WiFi SPEAKER that will sync with my router thereby play anything my WiFi Receiver plays.

Your receiver is connected to your WiFi network to browse NAS, uPnP, radio stations etc. You select on the receiver local, though app or via remote what you want to play. The receiver is then playing that over your wired speakers. Connecting speakers over WiFi is not going to your speakers know what to play. Connecting a WiFi speaker set to auxiliary output (not input) can do that for you. Other systems like Sonos are a complete integrated solution. Are you after such functuonity?

There is this Yamaha product:

It says has WiFi but from the specs I cannot determine whether it is streaming audio over WiFi.

Sorry for the confusion.  I have done a lot of research and this is what I have found out.  
1) The router is for internet use only and is not going to help me sync my receiver to a wifi speaker.

2) This unit does stream music to a speaker like I have (Bluetooth) if I use Pandora or my iTunes music stored on the iPad.

3) For some reason VTuner does not sync with the receiver from my iPad so I just download it to my computer and works well there as it does on the iPad BUT, when I opened the receiver App and selected server, (which I assume is my computer), the name C A HOME sows up and is followed by Music, photos, Videos, etc but they are all blank.

4) What do I have to do to link my computer to the receiver over wifi.  If I can do that, problem solved.
Thanks.

I'm not sure that C A HOME is the proper name for the network.  Maybe that is why everything is blank.

Just FYI - there is this wireless extender from D-Link that you can stream audio to that connects to your mobile speaker but also to your audio receiver. http://us.dlink.com/product-category/home-solutions/connected-home/wifi-audio-extender/
