I have used my Squeezebox without many problems for several months. I didn't use it for about a week, and now it won't recognize my wireless network (I have an Apple Airport). It sees the network, but can't connect. I even changed it to no security,but same problem. All my other computers connect to the network fine.

That's not all- it won't let me update firmware, it just freezes. I have tried to resatrt it many time- same badness!

have you had any software updates that might be affecting your firewall?
check the MAC address of the player (press and hold power to reset,
then instead of going into setup network, scroll to view current
settings). make sure it matches the mac address written on the bottom
of the player.
check that the mac address is correct in the airport mac filter (if you
are using the filter)

I've had trouble reconnecting if any of the network settings change. Try a hard reset - unplug the SB and hold down Add as you plug it back in.

I hadn't changed a thing, butthe Mac ID had changed somehow, I reset it to what was on the bottom of the sb2- all fixed!
