    I found the same thing on electropapa. Described as a replacement PSU for a Squeezebox Classic.

    EUR 13.69 inc. P&P

    Ordered one.

    Let's see!

    My wifi card and replacement power supplies both arrived.

    I installed the wifi card and powered it up using the new PSU.

    Same problem.

    Wifi not detected, IR remote still ignored (remote seems to work, via pointing it at the camera on my android device).

    What can it be?

    Is there another way to reset the SB3, that does not involve the remote control?

    Hi there,

    not really, sorry. I can only offer you to have a look if you send me the unit in question (to Germany). But I cannot promise you that I will find a solution for this matter. Could be that the CPU is dying (or whatever it is that causes SB3s to die).
    If you are interested, please send me a PN.

    Cheers,
    Johannes


    PN me if your Boom / Classic / Transporter display has issues!

    ClassicAMP?

    Maybe THIS would be a solution if you like the SB3 form factor (I do...)? Adds up to quite a bit of money, but nice result...

    For me, the SB3 is a pinnacle of design, both in terms of how it looks, but in terms of the functionality and the musical fidelity. I haven't been able to find something that can replace it in the same price range. I could never bring myself to cough up for a Transporter. The DAC is very good for the money.

    I have wandered off into Raspberry Pi territory, imagining a basic Pi with a suitable DAC with phono, or possibly digital fibre output, but I could never decide on one implementation or the other.

    Another summary of my situation:

    SB3 with no Wifi and no remote control, but a working ethernet connection.

    It has a fixed IP of 192.168.2.10.

    No way to perform a factory reset.

    I already have a Pi acting as a Kodi box, running LibreElec, which is configured to use WiFi to talk to my iMac to get stuff to play. The iMac also runs LMS.

    There are Kodi plugins to have the Pi act as either a LMS or squeezebox web controller.

    I did manage to connect the Pi to the SB3's ethernet port, but because of the way LibreElec works, if it detects a connected ethernet port, it will try to use that and doesn't time out to fall back on the WiFi interface. This makes reboots more complicated than they need to be. I suppose I could ask the LibreElec devs to consider implementing another feature, or I could use another OS variant for the OS that does support this. In general, I think Kodi sucks as a user interface, so I don't want to have to mess around finding another implementation of Kodi that will do as I want.

    I haven't worked out how to configure my home internet DSL modem to pick up 192.168.2.0 and route the data (maybe I should contact their support). I also haven't worked out how to get this modem to play nicely with my Netgear WNDR3700s (v1 and v4), running dd-wrt, to act as WiFi repeaters for the modem (I can do it via an ethernet cable, but that is not useful to me at the moment).

    Even if I got all that to work, it seems ridiculous to have to do all that in the first place, just because I can't change the configured IP address on the SB3.

    And I really like my SB3.

    Have a look at this thread. It might help.

    My understanding is Net::UDAP only works when the SB3 is not already configured for networking. I used Net::UDAP once, many moons ago. Perhaps after the original wifi card died and I found out the remote didn't work. Now, although I can see the SB3's MAC address (and ARP requests for "who has ...") I can't get Net::UDAP to talk to it.

    Thanks for the pointer though.
