    WPA or WEP encryption - any issues with SB1 (firmware 40)?

    A while ago, a tried setting up some encryption on my wireless network,
    but I couldn't get SB to connect to a 64-bit or 128-bit encrypted LAN.
    (I think, at the time, I was still on firmware revision 39). I ended up
    disabling encryption, so now I'm back to MAC filter. When I tried the
    encryption, I was on MAC filter plus encryption.

    Can anyone confirm whether this works or not? I guess it must work at
    some level, as I haven't seen any posts about it on the lists
    recently...?

    So if someone can let me know that it definitely works ok, then I'll try
    and get it up and running again on my home LAN.

    Are there any "preferred" encryption methods? e.g. 64-bit, 128-bit,
    WEP, WPA or whatever?

    Cheers!
    Dan.

    Certainly works ok on my system. Using 128-bit WEP IIRC.

    I'm using 64-bit WEP and MAC filter on my SB1s.

    Squeezeboxen only talk WEP, no WPA.

    WPA or WEP encryption - any issues with SB1 (firmware 40)?

    I have my SB1 and all other wifi devices at home operating in 128-bit
    WEP with shared key. On my Linksys router, when I set the 128-bit mode
    and provided a passphrase, it generated 4 hex keys. I also set the auth
    mode to shared key which requires the client to provide at least one of
    those keys when authenticating.

    Then on the SB1, I was able to specify the first hex key (of the 4 it
    generated from the passphrase) and it connected first time.tla
