Well then you know the problem is not your WEP at all, since it doesn't
work with security turned off. The problem might be with something like
a security list that the squeezebox is not on.

Have you confirmed if you are using MAC security filters and if so is
the SB part of the list?

Yes,

I have turned on SSID transmitting. Also verified that the server is
working, I am connecting to it with two copies of SoftSqueeze.

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 sense!



Go to 192.168.1.1 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" error.

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

SB is using firmware 29

Any basic suggestions?

Just as a point of reference:
I have never had any problems with my squeezebox and WEP.

Hardware is a linksys Wireless Router, encryption 128bit WEP only
(No mac filtering etc).

On the first powerup I gave the squeezebox the WEP key, and it connected
straight away - never a problem since.

However, I do not do any DHCP, I gave the squeeze box a static IP on
first boot. Have you tried giving your squeezebox a static IP?
