Cannot Connect Wirelessly

Wed Nov 11, 2009 7:16 pm

I have used and enjoyed my Soundbridge M1000 for many years. I now am having trouble connecting to the internet wirelessly (it does work connected through the eathernet). I have a Belkin N+ Router (broadcasting in b, g and n). The SB sees the wireless network, but will not connect when I enter the WEP key. I have tried disabling security and the router firewall. I have also tried resetting the SB and router.

The SB gives a message "Couldn't connect to [network]. I have been able to connect two laptops wirelessly, so I am confident the wifi network is working.

I had some issues one time with my M1000...make sure you have it set to the following:
- open system
- mode ASCII
- WEP key 128-bit
- have your password (key) in Key 1

and see if it works.

The M1000 only supports WEP encryption. However, wireless N in your router is not compatible with WEP. You must use WEP in the router for the M1000 to connect, and that means only using 802/11 b or g modes in the router. So fix the router set up and then you should be able to connect. You will then have to reconnect other devices with a WEP key.

Still no luck

I appreciate the suggestions. Unfortunately, even with WEP disabled completely, I still cannot get a connection. I now know the Roku wifi is working because I was able to get connected with a friend's Pre-N router. Until a few weeks ago, I had no trouble connecting to my N+ rounter. I assume it is a router setting that is wrong, but I can't seem to figure it out.

Disregard my last post. It's working again! If I figure out what I did, I'll post it for others. Thanks again.
