Since the SlimServer works and is not firewalled (verified by your using SoftSqueeze successfully from another computer), and the SB3 is on the network (and on the right network) (verified by ping), all the right pieces seem to be in place. It Should Work.
Have you tried connecting directly via Ethernet yet? If that works, then use that connection to update your player's firmware, and try wireless again.
(I used to know how to force a firmware update if it doesn't happen automatically, but I've forgotten the procedure. This one I found on the SlimDevices forum might work.)
All done unfortunately. I'm doing funny experimental things now like assigning everything static etc. Still no cigar. I really appreciate the help. Thanks. For all you know, it's something small and trivial i didn't do. LOL.
