I got my SB3 today and I was looking forward to try it out, but I can't even get the communication between my PC and the SB3 to work.
When I search for wireless networks on my PC, I find a Netgear of one of my neighbours but not the SB3, it's the same thing with the SB3, it finds the same Netgear but not my MSI-card..

I'm guessing it's the network card, it came bundled with my MSI Neo2 Platinum 54G motherboard, perhaps it's just crap. So I just wanted to check if someone else using this network card got it working?

Otherwise I'll just buy another PCI-card, any suggestions on what card I should get? Or rather, what card not to get, apart from the already mentioned MSI-card.

Thanks.

Jens,

It sounds like you have two clients (the Squeezebox and the card in
your computer). You have two options:

1. Set up your computer to connect to an "Ad-Hoc" network and give
it a name. Then use the Squeezebox to find that network and connect.
2. Get a wireless access point/router and have that set up a network
that the Squeezebox can connect to. You can connect your computer to
that either wirelessly or (preferred) via ethernet.

Thanks a lot dean! :)

Seems I don't know that much about networking after all..
