View Full Version : Help with a WEP enabled network

I gave up on WEP enabling with my squeezeboxes. They still lose
connections at random instances where I press a button on my remote.

Though... I changed my wireless settings to the numbers you mentioned and
I'll see if it happens again. (It only loses connection once every other
day or so.)

Thanks,
Phillip
