View Full Version : Squeezebox Controller loses connection to Server

2008-10-01, 11:45

I recently bought a Squeezebox Duett. It was rather easy to setup the system nad the network connection. I use a Zyxel 660HW as an combined ADSL and WiFi router and a WPA2-PSK as encryption standard.

My problem:
From time to time the Controller looses connection to the server (blue WiFi symbol) and is then unable to reconnect to the server. I have to shut down the controller to re-establish connection.

I am running "SqueezeCenter-Version: 7.2 - 22900 @ Tue Aug 26 11:27:23 PDT 2008 - Windows XP - DE - cp1252" directly on the PC. The Controller SOftware Version is 7.2 r2873.

Any ideas what to check?

Thanks for the pointer. I disabled the "Wireless power Save" feature. Now it seems to work o.k.

How can this happen?

The Zyxel routers are _very_ popular around here (Switzerland).

Thanks - I forwarded your message to our support team. They'll hopefully
add this information to the FAQ soon.

To me it seems that they are focusing on the "red icon" right now instead of the problem with the "blue icon of death...."

And once agin I would like to suggest that they should hurry giving us the feature of assigning a static IP to the controller. I would guess that this would help a lot of us (not all of us have access to the router - locked by the ISP)
