Bad wireless card in the Squeezebox or in the computer? I've a slightly
different problem (already reported to customer service) where the device
reboots occassionally when listening to internet radio. If I stream from
ripped CDs that are on the hard disk, no problem. Strange, eh?

That's exactly right. At 10, if the Squeezebox hasn't connected to an
infrastructure network, it tries to connect to an AdHoc network of the
same name. I've never heard of this kind of crash, it's possible it's
a bad wireless card or an incompatibility with your access point. What
make/model are the wireless devices on your network?

Indeed.
