After downloading 7.0.1 did you connect your player via hardwire to get the firmware update needed to correct the wireless issues with the receiver not being able to connect?

Hi there

As Anoop pointed out there was a connection issue with that particular router when wireless encryption is turned on (but as far as I know the issue only exists for Squeezebox Receiver, not for Squeezebox Controller).

So, optionally you could try the setup without any wireless encryption turned on first to get all relevant updates and turn it on again afterwards.

The issue has been fixed for SBR in firmware 23.

I ran an ethernet cable from my router to the player and now it works fine.

Thanks to everyone for your advice.
