View Full Version : Wireless - Cannot connect to Server

Hi all,

Recently taken the plunge for a Squeezebox - been keeping an eye on a slimp3
for the last year, but wanted a wireless option. Thanks for a great product
(at least throught ethernet cable), but no success with wireless.

Recently bought a Netgear DG834G, all-in-one ADSL modem, 4-port Router,
Firewall and Wireless Access Point, which I suspect is the problem. A couple
of weeks ago I killed the modem updating the firmware, thinking that might
help, so after a 2 week delay I've been sent a new one, and still can't
connect.

The main error message is:- Couldn't find Slim Server Automatically.

I can connect to my wireless network, obtain an IP address, the SB is in the
same room as the router = 100% signal, but on the page looking for the
server, can never find any. I've opened up the following ports on the
firewall:-

Outbound/Inbound TCP/UDP 9000
Outbound/Inbound TCP/UDP 3483
Outbound/Inbound TCP/UDP 1069
Outbound/Inbound TCP/UDP 47655 (only did this one as I saw it on the
information page of the SB).

Even temporarily opened all ports Inbound ports and tried UDP only, but no
success.

Are there any other Ports required.

I have Mandrake Linux 9.2 running 5.01.
I also installed last nights build on a WIN2k pc.

Works perfect through Ethernet (and a long cable downstairs for the last 2
weeks).

Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated,

Cheers,

Jon

Make sure the squeezebox and the server are on the same LAN, i.e.
bridged together, not routed. If you have your router set up so that
the server is on the other side (the WAN side), then it won't be able
to discover it. Usually, if the server is on the built-in switch and
the squeezebox is wireless it "just works".
