Default Sudden power down when listening to WiFi

I recently purchased the Stilletto 100 and have been listening via WiFi all week while on vacation in the carribean. Besides having issues with losing the wifi connection (not sure if this is a local router issue or the known wifi bug) I have also had several occasions where while listening, the unit will turn off all by itself. Nobody is touching the unit when this happens, and when I turn it back on , the battery has 3-4 bars, so its not a battery issue. Has anyone else experienced this problem???

It is hard to say or pin down honestly. The key to resolving this problem is to make sure the router or access point is using the standard WEP or WPA2 not WPA/WPA1, also make sure to disable fancy features like QoS.

I understand that were you were you had no control over the router or access point, but this is what is known at this time. So this could cause the shut down, hopefully in the future there will be some sort of fix. But sticking to the above protocols will most certainly minimize this happening.

Thanks for the reply. I'm heading home today so I can monitor the issue on my home network. If it keeps recurring I'll post an update with the specifics.

BTW, this board is a great resource.

I had it happen to me this morning. I was in the shower listening to wifi and it shutdown on me at about 6:30am. I do know there have been problems with the online stream this morning based on a few complaints I have seen. I did not bother to reconnect after getting out of the shower becaude my trusty S50 was on.
