I've been using my Squeezebox with no problems for about 12 months, however
.. it seemed to lose it's network connection (wireless) and now when I try to
reconnect to the PC with the slimserver software - it's can't seem to find
it. At the same time on the PC - I get the following message; 'there is an
IP conflict with another system on the network'. At this point my internet
connection dies and I have to reboot everything.



I have tried loading the slimserver software to another PC on the network,
with a different IP and the same thing happens.



I'm using XP and Slmserver 6 Beta.



Any bright ideas?



Thanks in advance

it sounds like you have some devices with hard coded IP address on your
network and others with dynamic (DHCP) addresses.
Does your squeezebox have a fixed IP address?
Does your slim server?
