Hey Jeff -
Have you tried changing the channel that your wireless
network uses? Default is probably 6. Try channel 1 or
11 instead.

That's odd how WEP wouldn't work for you. I got WEP to
work no problem, but my problem was that I use WPA
encryption and had to turn that off.

Check out my review of the Squeezebox at
