View Full Version : Squeezebox doesn't see wireless network

I don't think that your typical consumer who simply checks the WEP box and
enters a key does MAC filtering.

Having setup a ton of home networks as well as being a network engineer who
works with the enterprise level stuff all the time I must say that I find
this statement very incongruent with my own experiences.

Does the squeezebox work when it's directly connected (ethernet, not
wireless)? Can you connect another device to the SMC device and see
connectivity? And, maybe a silly question, but is there any chance you
are also doing MAC filtering? Most people who set up WEP usually filter
on MAC address too...
