    Using static IP address - now can't connect to internet radio or Squeezenetwork

    When I was using DHCP, I had no problems getting internet radio, but my laptop kept getting bumped of the network due to IP address conflicts.

    Now I'm using a static IP which seems to have solved the problem just mentioned. But now I can't connect to any internet radio stations or squeezenetwork. There must be some setting on my router than needs changing, but I haven't a clue.

    Any ideas?

    Routers usually aren't affected by such changes as long as you're choosing
    addresses out of the same range as the router's DHCP range. What's your IP
    configuration on router, PC and SB?

    What exactly do you mean by IP configuration? Please clarify, and I'll get the information. Thanks.

    What IP address, gateway, dns did you set when configuring the static IP
    settings on your devices?

    If you don't know what this means, there's a good chance your
    configuration isn't correct. On Windows you can run "ipconfig /all" from a
    command window. On the SB go to the main menu, press and hold LEFT until
    you're back in the player's setup screen, then go to "current network
    settings" or something.

    That's what I thought you meant.

    The SB3 is the only device on the network with a static IP. Here are the settings

    IP address: 192.168.001.111
    Default Gateway: 071.106.041.001
    DNS server: 068.238.064.012


    PC settings (DHCP):
    IP address: 192.168.001.100
    Default Gateway: 192.168.001.100
    DNS server: 068.238.064.012

    Router settings:
    IP Address: 071.106.041.176
    Default Gateway: 071.106.041.001
    DNS server: 068.238.064.012

    With these settings, the SB3 can access Slimserver just fine, but not internet access (e.g., internet radio, Squeezenetwork)

    You very probably gave us the external (WAN) IP address of your router
    instead of the local (LAN) address. The latter should be something like
    192.168.001.xyz. Put that latter as your SB's gateway.

    You nailed it. Using:

    Default Gateway: 192.168.001.001

    solves the problem. Thanks so much!
