Hi guys, i just got a Zeppelin Air for my birthday yesterday. Killer sound. :)

But i've run in to some issues with it, sometimes it cuts out. Which is unacceptable.

I tried to connect it with a ethernet cable and it haven't cut out since, which points towards network issues. But i have a Time Capsule a couple of meters away, and my iMac doesn't show any networking problems at all.

Does anybody have some tips to share with me before i take it back to the store? :)

Thanks in advance. :apple:

I have one sitting unused. Great sound, but despite trying everything I could never solve the connectivity problems. If you are within the return period, return it. Wish I had.

Have an air with time capsule wifi on auto band 5/2.4 n channel 36 or channel 1 manuell not auto. I set the time capsule for à channel away from interference from neighboring networks. Using apples autochannelmode bring to much interference at least for me. Never have à break in sound with my settings. Update to latest firmware on the air and set correct network channel. You are rocking!
