I have recently bought a Wireless Squeezebox but the music "breaks" up during playback. The wireless connection seems ok.

Also it will not work in the room I specifically bought it for. The lost contact with server message appears: and reinstall of the info some times produces < can't alloc netpages for Dll:4

In this room my invalid wife spends most of the time. She has a radio [via telephone ] controlled panic button to press for emergences. Could this be the problem- if so is there a solution

Hi Brian,

It sounds like your wireless connection is having some reliability
problems. Try testing the player by plugging it in via ethernet and
see if the problem goes away. Also, if you haven't installed our
latest pre-release version:

http://www.slimdevices.com/downloads/nightly/latest

I recommend that, since it should fix some memory/setup problems that
you are seeing as well as improve wireless performance.

Sorry to be a dipstick but which file[s] do I download.
Also I only have one ethernet connection which is connected to the Cable

If you run the server on windows, download the EXE. If you use OSX, download the
DMG file. If you use linux, then the tar.gz file is your thing. You only need
to download one of them, then run the file to install/upgrade.

The squeezebox should be rather obvious as to where the ethernet cable goes,
since the cable will only fit in one place. When you are using wireless, I
would assume you have an access point that the squeezebox connects to. That
would have an ethernet connection to the cable modem somehow. If your cable
modem has a wireless built-in, then look to see if it has more than one
connection for cable wiring. If none of this works, perhaps you can describe
more about your setup. What are you using for wireless and what PC's are
connecting to your cable modem?

It IS obvious as to where the ethernet cable goes on the squeezebox. I am
using a Belkin wireless card to connect to the sqeezebox.I am told there is
not a router that will take the local cable company's cable connector, hence
the wireless card. If I connect the only ethernet outlet on my computer ,
the internet connection will be disconnected, which I would have thought was
wrong.
I have now downloaded the exe file as you said, updated the squeezebox which
now shows the message < Problem: Lost contact with Slimserver, check that
the software is running > it is

Further to my last email the box has now come to life and the music does
break up.All joy and many thanks.Will it also have cured the problem below ?
I am scared to try - been on this setup for 3 days.
Also it will not work in the room I specifically bought it for. The

I can sympathise with the connector problem. I'm a frequent visitor to the UK
and even knowing networking and telecom as well as I do, I'm lost when it comes
to the need for so many incompatible connections. Even local shops can't sell
me a proper phone lead that works with an NTL connection. Glad that the latest
version helps (I've assumed "all joy" means that "does break up" was intended to
be "doesn't break up"). You can also limit the bitrate if you want to use less
of the wireless bandwidth. Player settings allow bitrate limiting if you have
LAME installed and some extra CPU power to handle the conversions.

The dll error is an odd one, and I dont know off the top of my head if its been
linked to any specific problem/solution. Hopefully its simply gone :) Try
everything that you need it to do while you have some 'safe' time to do so, and
feel free to post more if there are any problems. The crew here are very
helpful, and several of the slim devices gang are active in the list too.

cheers,

I am still hunting for a router for my cable company connecter for use with
other wireless devices.
However I still have the same problem [ using a Belkin card ] viz
The s/b works fine in the room with the computer but not in the room I
specifically bought it for.It does work in the next room to the computer
also. The range of the card is supposed to be 180 metres so that would not
appear to be the problem.As mentioned before there is a radio controlled
alarm connected to the telephone in the room - could this affect it. The
message is < Problem: cant find Slimserver etc .Settings used on s/b are IP
address - 1 digit diff to IP -Netmask 255,255,255,0.Gateway - IP but last 3
digits amended to 255.Hope this is clear.
I take it that as the device works in the one room that the problem is not
to do with the acual device ?

I'm not really familiar with the various connectors for the UK, but
doesn't your cable modem have an ethernet out? Or do you have to use
some kind of proprietary card in your PC?

The gateway sounds wrong. x.x.x.255 is the IP subnet broadcast
address. (i.e. packets sent to x.x.x.255 are received by all machines
in the x.x.x.0 subnet)

This does point to something blocking the radio signal in other rooms.
What type of construction is used in your home? Lath and plaster often
has wire mesh under/in the plaster to strenghen it, and that can make
for an effective RF shield.

The radio-controlled alarm could be a problem if it's using the 2.4GHz
band. Have you tried changing the WiFi channel you're using? Channel 1
seems to be more resistant to microwave oven interference. I'd check 1
and 11 (the two far ends of the channel space), since many WiFi setups
use 6 by default.

1)What should I use for the Gateway address as related to the IP re last 3
digits.
2) I'm using Channel 11 at present
3) No ethernet out on the modem.

In that case, the gateway makes sense.

Sorry, beyond that I don't have any new ideas.
