I have opened the Box and the Card is secured with two blotches of hot
melting adhesive (sry, don't know the english word for that), no chance for
the card to loose contact...

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.
