power on/off button

Thu Oct 07, 2010 11:15 am

Is there a power on/off button on my Soundbridge?

When I lose my internet connection, it seems my only resort now is to remove the power plug and plug it in again.

Hi,

There is no power button - only a standby button (on the remote control, and a physical standby control on the R1000 radio).

Why do you think you need one? What does it do that makes you think it needs one?

The temporary loss of an internet connection should not require it to be powered off and on.

When you lose the connection, what happens to your SoundBridge and to your router?

Les.

Sorry for the tardy reply.
Ok.
Again. What should I do when I lose the wifi connection?
I can 'quickly' regain it by pulling the plug and putting it back in.
My question was, is there an EASIER way?
I don't know what happens to my router etc. and I would
not want to mess with it since all my other wifi devices
still have their connections.

No worries. But 361 days is quite a delayed response... :roll:

Two ways (only you can decide whether easier or not).

1) In the system configuration go to Select WiFi SSID and Password. reselect the SSID for your WiFi connection. The radio should have remembered the security info to allow reconnection.
or
2) In the system configuration menu go to Restart SoundBridge. That should be equivalent to unplugging and plugging back in.
then
3) Maybe read the manual to acquaint yourself with these kinds of options?

Thanks for the two tips.
I looked through the manual but found it a difficult
book to navigate.
