View Full Version : Security Issues with WPA

2008-02-23, 20:56
Hi All,

I used to have issues running the SB2 when I set my Netgear DG834GT router to WPA security. The SB2 would drop out every few minutes then reconnect to the router.

The SB2 worked fine with WEP or no security.

I've just upgraded to a Billion 7404VGP and the SB2 has the same issues. Works flawlessly on WEP security but regularly disconnects when using WPA setting.

Is this a known issue or is there anything I should be looking at in my settings?

I've not heard of that being a particular issue, I use WPA security without a problem on my units. I have other wireless issues, but that is mainly to do with the number if other networks in my area.

I have WPA running on a Netgear DG834N without any problems, though it is a Squeezebox 3 rather than 2.

I have 2xSB2 and 1xSB3 using WPA running on the same model Netgear router without any issues.

What Mode do you have it running in? If on "up to 270" try taking it down to g&b mode and seeing if that improves your connection rate.

Also, what router firmware are you running?

I now have it working again.

I've done two things at once so am unsure of what has fixed the problem.

I rolled back the Billion's firmware to the previous one (which I only upgraded 2 days ago) + I'm letting the router assign the IP address.

I'm thinking it could very well be the latest firmware version on the Billion.

Thanks for the suggestions.
