    UE Radio and wifi problems

    Hi there,

    I am using two Duet with two controllers, a Squeezebox Radio and a picoreplayer without any problems all around the flat for a long time.
    Yesterday, I received an UE Radio (but using with LMS) meant to be the kid's radio and got strange wifi-issues. I read all the threads and comments, but they don't cover my problem: the radio is just very, very bad at wifi...
    Even when a 10 cm range around the router, wifi signal is max 45%, when 2 meters away or behind a wall, wifi is gone. And the surrounding wireless networks are completely invisible.

    So, here's what I did:
    - changed the wifi channel from 1 to 11 -> no result
    - disabled b/n and 5 Ghz, so only router-mode is 2.4 GHz and g -> no result
    - removed the board from the housing and had the antenna within 1 cm of the router antenna -> max. 68% wifi strength
    - solder joint of the antenna look strange, so I re-soldered it -> no result

    Conclusion: the unit is broken and I have to buy another one? The seller said, everything was working fine before, of course...
    Does anyone else have this bad wifi reception?

    I have no problem with Radio reception. Instead of buying a new radio - unless you planned on mainly battery use, you could use ethernet with an ethernet-wifi adapter (e.g. travel router configured as a reverse AP, old game cnsole wifi adaptor)
