Most common problem is dead wifi card and this will stop SB from working. To open SB you need a special Torx t10 screwdriver. The wifi card can be removed easily and if the card was faulty then SB will work OK but just with ethernet connection. A replacement wifi card is quite cheap.

See http://lowtek.ca/roo/2011/squeezebox-classic-repair/ for an idea on how to open the SB and remove the card.

Thanks. What kind of card does it use? Where are those sold?
