      Wireless keeps dropping

      I have been using the Sky Router for ages, and today, I got myself an MP101, which is a device you plug into your home amp, and you can steam music to it.

      Problem is, it only supports WEP.

      I use WPA-PSK, which the MP101 doesn't support.

      So I don't mind going to WEP, but then problems happen. My wireless connection keeps dropping, and it's hard to get it reconnected. Maybe I am doing something wrong with the setup?

      Has anyone got this problem or know of a solution? I switch back to WPA, and all works 100% again.

      Oh, please tell me there is a solution.

      Re: Wireless keeps dropping

      is there any firmare update on the MP101 website to add WPA?

      I'd be interested to hear how you get on as I've been thinking of getting a media streamer for a while to hook up to my amp.

      Re: Wireless keeps dropping

      It's not related to the MP101. My laptop drops too. It's like the router is rebooting the wireless module. And then I need to plug in my network cable and fix the settings. Agghh..
