View Full Version : Wireless - Cannot connect to Server

As dean said, try pointing manually to the IP of your slimserver and see if
it works.

Also, make sure that you haven't enabled MAC filtering for wireless
security, that's bitten more than one person here.

Thanks for the reply. I can see what you mean, but can't see anything in
the Netgear config which might resolve this. As everything is in One box, I
would have thought it would be simple.

The router is, the 2 wired PC's are, and the
Squeezebox is All on and assigned via DHCP.

Maybe something should go on the Static Routes page.

Another possibility is a Netgear firmware fix. One of the fixes is "Fixed
PPTP passthrough to allow server on LAN".

I'm reluctant to do this at the moment, as I've already had to return it
once, and its happened quite a lot. I'll have to wait for a newer version.

I'll have to stick with cable down the stairs for now, and wish I'd cabled
the house when it was being built.

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".
