I take it you've set slimserver running on your PC/Mac before powering on?

The squeezebox should do as you say then look for your wireless network (make
sure you are broadcasting the SSID just to help it first time), this should all
happen automatically without you touching anything.

The order should be look for wireless network, find it, obtain an IP address and
start working without you entering any codes. You only need to go through the
menus if it can't find the server or to enter WEP keys if it doesn't ask for it.

If it isn't responding to the remote then it could have a faulty IR receiver in
which case, it would need to be sent back.

Could we have more info about the set-up? Wired/wireless, OS you're running
slimserver on, WEP on a wireless network?
