I run 3 SB3's off a Windows XP PC using latest version of iTunes. After my upgrade to 6.5.2 no problems with two of the SB3's but the one in my bedroom can't find Slimserver. I've tried redoing the network etc. Box finds an IP address and the IP address of host PC but error message: Can't connect to Slimserver. Press right to try again.

Try connecting wired and forcing a firmware upgrade by pressing and holding brightness.

Also check that their MAC addresses match their labels.

Sean,
what difference does it make if the mac address, which will be picked up by the network as the SB connects, matches what was printed on the SB label or not? Just curious.

I believe if there's a bug here it usually causes the MAC address to default to a spurious value like FF:FF:FF:FF:FF or something which most routers reject as it's invalid.

Forcing the firmware upgrade did the trick. Thanks for the tip.
