View Full Version : My NOT good wireless experience

Thanks. Still rebooting at random.

My DHCP lease time is the standard Linksys 1 day. Shouldn't be a factor,
one would think.

It just happened again -- rebooted. Even though IP is fixed and network is
hardwired to B only.

-d_protocol log shows:

2005-02-24 13:30:00.8762 Got discovery request, deviceid = 2, revision =
2.8, MAC = 00:04:20:05:87:b3
2005-02-24 13:30:00.8763 It's a squeezebox
2005-02-24 13:30:00.8763 calculated rehome length: 17
2005-02-24 13:30:00.8765 sent discovery response

Any other debugging I could set that will help?

I will try different channels and see if that helps.

Any help is still appreciated.
