    troubleshooting wifi

    hello All,

    since I replaced my wifi, I have problems with my Radio, and only with it.

    The Radio disconnects randomly even if in 3m range from the HP wifi.

    All other appliances work fine.

    Is there a way to view the system log files?

    SSH and Telnet ports are open.

    I guess there should be a user/pwd combination to access the file system.

    thanks for your advice,

    -Gian

    Fing is a very hand app (for ios and android) for troubleshooting wifi problems, it will show everything on your network and if you ping a device the packet loss percentage is a good indication of the signal quality...was a big help in getting my picoreplayer working right, helped me determine I needed better wifi to the garage. Wifi Analyzer is helpful too for checking out signal strength and determining the least crowded channel. Both are free...

    thanks Mnyb and Bluto99,

    I got it, can ssh the Radio now.

    I thought that being able to switch channel was a good feature, do you suggest to avoid it?
    BTW, I checked and it's not on Auto, it's fixed on channel 5.

    That's good use 1 , 6 or 11 are you living in a region where ch 12-13 is an option ? That does not really work with Radio so better keep it to 1-11 range . Radio is not good at roaming so maybe even avoiding ch switching is good .

    There are some tools for laptops to like vistumbler etc . Use the least congested channel you can find .

    In general turn of wireless B capability squeezeboxes are 2.4gHz G devices ( they don't do N ) there is no problem using N or AC routers just make sure the squeezebox uses the 2.4gHz G ssid .

    If it's a router setting problem can you tell us more about the router and you network is there any AP's and extenders involved ? Remember radio don't roam well so if it hooked itself up to one access piont it does not switch to another reliably if you move it around .
