Hey guys: thanks for sticking with me as I work
through this stuff.

Anyway, here I am playing Internet Radio through
SqueezeNetwork on my SB2 through my super-long
Ethernet cable. Working OK, but there are two issues:

1. Nearly every time I connect to the Squeezenetwork,
it asks me to do a firmware update. I have updated
the firmware at least 20 times tonight! The splash
screen on startup keeps alternating between
"squeezebox" (i.e. the new one) and "squeezebox2". I
have a feeling it's going from the new firmware back
to the old one again and again. Any advice to get out
of this loop? I understand that the newest SlimServer
also contains the latest firmware, but I'm running
6.1.1 - is this part of the problem?

2. When I was doing testing with my short Ethernet
cable SlimServer could see my SB2 just fine. Now it
can't find the player. I suspect the two are related,
it finds it for a second or so and says "Your player
requires a firmware update. Press and hold
BRIGHTNESS" yada yada, then it loses it again.
Obviously the SB2 finds SlimServer just fine.

According to Dan number 1 was just fixed. Number 2 - pass.

Well both these problems got solved last night.

As Dan Sully indicated, the continuous firmware
updates were due to changes on SqueezeNetwork.
Shortly after he indicated they would stop, they did.

And I couldn't see my SB2 due to an id10t error.
When you're on SqueezeNetwork, you are not
connected to SlimServer so SlimServer can't see
your SB. (Duh!) As soon as I log off
SqueezeNetwork, SlimServer immediately picks up my SB.

Now in regards to my router, I'm picking up a new
one right after I type this. I refuse to play
whack-a-mole with my SMC firmware any more.
