View Full Version : SB1 - Connection Issues

2005-12-22, 07:53

I have a 1st generation Squeezebox and am running slimserver 6.2.1. The box plays flawlessly for hours upon hours at a time. However when it's shut down it won't hold a connection to the server.

Example would be last night listed to the box for 2 hours. Went to bed and when I woke up the screen was dark. Powered up the device and it says lost connection to server. I have to reboot the unit, scroll through the setup menu's again and then listened to it for another hour before work.

Idea's? This just started recently. I upgraded to slimserver 6.2.1 in hops of fixing, but no. I'm using a Linksys WRT54GS v.3 wireless router, computer has Windows XP with all updates. I checked my power settings and sleep mode is disabled on my pc and the hard drives never shut down.

Sorry it's a Squeezebox 2, not the 1. My mistake, but issue is the same.

Try leaving the SB2 connected to SqueezeNetwork. If it disconnects overnight as well, your problem is in the router.

Is the router rebooting? Does it lose connection periodically?
