could be that the server has the IP address of that box cached and is not
releasing it. try rebooting the server or clearing the arp cache, try
rebooting the switches/routers. if what you are calling a hub is actually a
network switch it could have a stuck entry in its CAM table for that device.

Subject: [slim] Can't find slimserver

I've decided to stop stomping around the house and yelling. The maid came
today and, as she always does, unplugged the powerline adapter which feeds
the hub in the living room to which squeezebox A is connected. Squeezebox B
also uses powerline, though from a different adapter which did not get
disconnected. Squezzebox A has since been unable to find the slimserver,
though B plays for it just fine. I've re-booted A some 10 or 15 times now -
nothing. I've tried it wirelessly, connected directly to the powerline -
nothing. Curiously, it does acquire an IP address usong DHCP so it doesn't
seem to be the network. As a last resort, I told slimserver to forget the
player hoping it would "rediscover" it. Of course, it did not. Anyone have
any suggestions?
