I've been coveting my friends SB for several months and finally took the leap. I am having problems maintaining a good connection.
The first symptom was the inability of the SB to connect with the WEP. I made sure the router [ViewSonic WR100] was set to g+b. I confirmed the WEP. Nothing. I tried it again an hour later and it worked. It lasted long enough to download and install new firmware. But promptly died mid song.
It buffers and plays and buffers and pauses retrying...
I changed my wireless channel to the clearest that my laptop could pick up.
The SB is trying to work in an apartment building in SF, CA--arguably the most wirelessly "wired" city on the planet. My laptop can pick up 11 separate routers from my neighbors. The SB can only see two. I have programmed mine and its WEP into the SB.
Is there anyway to improve the connection outside of running cat5 around my baseboard?
