    SB3 crashes

    Hi,

    I just received my second SB3 and am trying to set up its wireless networking. I accidentally entered the wrong static IP address (192.168.1.x instead of 192.168.2.x -- I don't use DHCP) and now, whenever I try to fix it by going through "set up networking", the SB reboots right after I choose my SSID.

    I successfully connected to a neighbor's WLAN and connected to SqueezeNetwork. I changed the SB3's IP, then tried to connect back to my SSID with the same results: the SB3 reboots right after I choose my SSID. By "reboot" I mean the display goes blank and, after a moment, I get the "SLIM DEVICES" splash screen and have to start all over in networking setup.

    FWIW, my network uses WPA encryption and the neighbor's uses no encryption. I have another SB3 that connects to my network (wired) with no problems. It used to connect wirelessly to my network, but now it's hardwired. For kicks, I tried connecting this other SB3 wirelessly to my network (like it used to be), and when I get to the screen to enter the "WPA password" (it has a few asterisks instead of an area where I can enter the 65 hex-digit WPA pre-shared key), it, um, says "malloc failed" and reboots.

    When I powered up the new SB3 for the first time, I was able to enter the 65-digit WPA pre-shared key. I can no longer get to that screen or to any of the other WLAN screens (ip address, subnet mask, dns server, etc). I do have two laptops connected wirelessly so I know the network works.

    Both SB3s have firmware version 55. Is the WPA implementation in SB3 buggy? Help! What should I do?

    Thank you,
    grimholtz

    try a factory reset:
    press and hold power, until the SB3 resets. press and hold add through
    the display of the logo until you see the screen say "factory reset"
    this clears all IP/wireless settings so that you can start anew.
