I am thinking about connecting a wired Squeezebox to a network bridge to
give me a consistent 'G' network, will that work - has anyone done somthing
similar? Stve

Dave,

I presume you have found a combination of nightlies and firmware which
addresses the drop out issue. Which one is it?

Thanks,

Ken

Steve,
Yes, I did exactly that as a move to try to overcome some gaps in the
playback I was experiencing via my original wireless "b" set up. Bought a
new "g" router (sold my old one) and then got a "g" bridge. The trick here
if you are going LinkSys is to get the "gaming" version which saves about
20% over the standard bridge and as far as I or my dealer can tell performs
excatly the same. It certainly works for me. However I then went on to
discover that my dropout problems were not network-related but to do with
the software/firmware combination and I have now gone back to wireless "b"
with direct streaming to the SB. Just need to find a use for a gaming
bridge!

Well for me it has for some time been 6/04 and v.23. I had lots of trouble
with later nightlies especially once they tried to update my firmware which
then got stuck halfway through the upgrade - apparently this affects a
handful of players out there. I then got involved in removing the internal
wireless card to allow the firmware upgrade to work - which it did -but
still did not get stable playback of FLACs so had to transition back again.

I have been doing some thorough testing today (i.e spending the day actually
listening to music!) and so far I have had only about half a dozen dropouts
in as many hours. This is still not what I would like but a whole lot
better than some of the configurations I have had.
