There is something I do not understand regarding Internetradio on my Squeezebox. I have wireless connection with the music files on my PC, this works fine. However if I select Internetradio I get the message: "Stream controlling", than "Connecting" and finally "Connection Timed out". In the settings I increased the Radiostation buffer seconds and timeout already to 20.

I have Squeezebox V3, Firmware: 112, SqueezeCenter 7.2, and Linksys WRT54GS ver.6. wireless router.

Thanks for helping me out.

90% of the time, I listen to internet radio on my SB's. Said it before, will say it again: internet radio is only as good as the stream.

The error that you describe suggests a stream error, and not a SC or SB error. To narrow down the possibilities try opening the station's stream in your browser or desktop player. If the problem is the same, the stream is not ... streaming. Bandwidth is often an issue for popular underfunded stations.
