Also what kind of WEP encryption are you using? Are you broadcasting your
SSID? What type of authentication method?

It has been known for the wireless card inside the squeezebox to come
slightly loose from the socket. This leads to complete or intermittant
operation of the wireless connection.

It might be worth opening the SB case and checking the card is firmly
inserted in the socket.
