Are u sending the signal to a lan connected computer to the router and then
to the SB or from a wi-fi connected computer to the router and then to the
SB?

I do have the same problem with same router... I send the signal from my
laptop centrino (wi-fi)

Thanks for the suggestions:

-- I will try MAC filtering instead of WEP if the problem persists. I only
have two wireless devices right now, so it's no big deal.

-- That's good to know about the double-reboot. Makes me feel a little
better.

-- As far as interoperability, I don't care who's certified or not, but if
Squeezebox can't interoperate (i.e. WORK!) with a Linksys WRT54G, which is
arguably one of the more popular access points/routers, then that's a much
bigger problem -- for Slim Devices -- than my little complaint.

I'll keep plugging. If anyone has any more info, I'd sure appreciate it.
