don't see that WEP is required at all in the documentation---it just says you're going to need it. Never worked with ANYTHING that required WEP.
At any rate, when I turn WEP on, it does make some progress, but the thing is unbelievably flaky (I am on 2.1). It says it connects, but shows no IP address at the top. If you go to System Information, it says it is not connected under Wireless. Then at another point, it shows an IP addess at the top, but even with an IP address at the top, System Information shows that no connection to a wireless network.
And the worst part is, it doesn't find any shares. so the whole goal of trying to share my iPhoto library is still failing.
Soundbridge works well, seems like they had different programmers working on the box. Intuitive to setup, works well with wireless, gives you good information on the wireless setup, even signal strength. These look like two different companies products.
So, with WEP enabled, I almost have a connection. Any other suggestions?
Thanks for all the input.
