Firstly let me warn you, I am not a networking-newbie.
I've got my SB Duet up and running - YAY!
It only took me 7 hours of f**king around with the unit, reset to factory default settings more times than I can remember...I even phoned Logitech support. (they 'will' get back to me in the next 48 hours).
From the start:
Install Squeezebox server software on XP PC
Turn on SB controller
Controller finds household network and connects :-)
Turn on SB receiver (the fun begins)
SB controller can't find network (meaning receiver can't connect), LED on front panel flashes red then yellow
Ok, let's reset everything to factory default!
Nope, same results as above.
Reset everything AGAIN - this time receiver connected to router via ethernet cable.
Ahha! Receiver now has white LED on front panel. Can now access internet radio, but not PC audio files.
Went to bed.
6 hours later...
Next morning, I'm gonna figure this bloody thing out!
Go through settings, reboot, restore, reconfirm, release me PLEASE!
No other option now - call Logitech :-(
Ring ring, "Hello I am Sanjeev, may I be helping you, please"?
Sanjeev takes my details, but can't offer any technical assistance.
He did promise a "Logitech Squeezebox Duet support person will call back within 48 hours".
Hmmm, Ok.....I don't wanna wait 48 hours.
So I thought, OK, what else can I do with my network?
Like a hit between the eyes, it occurred to me to try changing the SSID of my network.
Well, like that old saying goes 'WTF'.
All I did was change the SSID (network name) and everything works!
My original SSID was all uppercase letters. It's now lower case..I really can't see why that should make any difference. Also, I use WPA encryption.
The back plastic battery cover is slightly loose on the controller and it makes an annoying creaking sound every time you hold the damn thing.
Hope this helps someone out there!
