This may be a bit obvious and you may have tried it already, but are you
broadcasting your SSID (what you are referring to as IDSID)? In order to find
it, you would probably have to transmit the SSID. I can't remember if I had to
turn on broadcast for the Squeezebox to find the network but it kind of makes

Go to or whatever your router works on and go into the security
settings and make sure you are transmitting the SSID, you can always turn it off
after the squeezebox finds it as it'll remember the settings.

Also, you must have slim.exe running and the firewall allowing connections to
the various ports, if you are using XP SP2, there are additional settings. These
are in the FAQ on the slim devices site.

Just got my new G SB - looks great

.. BUT it can't find my wireless network.

Tried all around the house, but still get the "Can't find a wireless network"

IDSID is known, using 40-bit WEP Shared Key on Key 1 without a passphrase

SB is using firmware 29

Any basic suggestions?
