Dean,

setup is thus :

1)
Cable modem connected to WAN port of Speedstream SS2624 (4 port
router/wireless access point)
Windows XP Pro, DELL Dimension 2350 with Broadcom network chipset,
running SlimServer connected to LAN port 1 of SS2624
Squeezebox connected either wirelessly to SS2624 or by ethernet cable
to SS2624 LAN port 2

In this setup, the Squeeze works great on wired network. Very bad on
wireless.

2)
Same as above, but also add (borrowed) Linksys WAP11 onto SS2624 LAN
port 3. I now have two wireless
networks, the Squeeze finds them both (different SSIDs) and I can
select either. Via the LinkSys
network, Squeeze seems to work well.

Obviously, this would point to some strange behaviour of the 802.11 in
the Speedstream box ?
But perhaps I've missed something ?

Cheers,

Paul.
