I had problems with a Logitech Squeezebox Boom: it would work correctly with wired network cable,(from latest version of Squeezebox server), then correctly from Vortexbox) initially work correctly with wireless network, but eventually stopped playing each track after 7 seconds, and rebuffered, loosing connection with server.
The same happened repeatedly with Squeezebox v3’s, both Slim Devices and Logitech.

Logitech support were useless-saying the Boom Box was faulty, to return for replacement…

The reliable way I cured this was
1-reconnect network cable, unplug the power cable and set up wired networking again.
2-Get a different wireless network bridge-I used Netgear unsecured-re set up wireless networking-worked correctly
try “use bridge to ethernet –yes”
and “use bridge to ethernet-no”

3-re setup networking to the original perfectly working Belkin N draft router

everything works again…

Could I have your comments, and could this be incorporated into the slimdevices/documentation -which I could not find on the web

sounds like this was a network issue rather than a SB player issue and you resolved by resetting the network stuff. But in any case, see this link for lots of info/documentation:
