      How does it keep in place? Well, I just created it and it has been there
      ever since... I thought too it would be deleted,
      but was very surprised to find it still there.


      # Begin /etc/nsswitch.conf

      passwd: files
      group: files
      shadow: files

      hosts: files dns
      networks: files

      protocols: files
      services: files
      ethers: files
      rpc: files

      # End /etc/nsswitch.conf

      It probably has more to do with if the DNS server you are using has an
      entry for or not.

      If the MP101 frequently completely loses the wireless network
      (eventhough the Netgear 802.11G router is like maybe 2 meters away)

      I see the same behaviour, but a lot less often. See below:

      I just tried it. Mine actually jumps from 45 to 0 sometimes... I have
      pointed the Antenna a bit differently, but I suspect it is the 128bit
      WEP encryption, I what I want to try is going down to 64bit WEP
      encryption sometime. I have also noticed it happens for some albums a
      lot more than others, especially it happens for MP3s encoded in VBR
      where the bitrate can go pretty high, I am thinking maybe there's no
      time left for decryption if the bitrate is too high or something... Like
      sometimes I can play 2 hours or more and it doesn't skip, other albums
      skip more. Also, when I play an MP3 shoutcast stream, there are never
      any interruptions.

      So 64Kbit encryption is my next attempt - But currently I don't have
      that much time for home projects, I'm very busy hacking away at C++/Java
      programs for the company I work for.

      I tried adding this to the Wiki 2 weeks ago or so, but no matter what I
      did back then it wouldn't let me create anything.. I'll add this info
