I have exactly the same issue. I had the slingbox reset and reconfigured, but I still experienxce these drops. Sometimes it can work for about 10 minutes, other times it drops continously after just a few seconds. The connection where the slingbox is located (italy) and where I am recieving (sweden) are fine. The redlights on the box look as they should (two permanent red lights plus the third that lights when i tryu to connect.
I configured my router in italy as specified in the instructions.
The problem is that earlier the box was generally streaming properly for longer intervals (between 5-15 minutes) but now it often drops after a few seconds.
What can I do? Help!
Often when trying to reconnect after a drop I get this message "someone else is using the slingbox", which is obviously not the case.
I also noticed that the more frequent drops started at the same time the link to connect via facebook stoarted to appear. I do not know if there can be any connection.
Any help appreciated
i have the same problems you describe, getting ready to take the thing back and get my money back.
Drops constantly, often in mid stream it will say someone else is using the box.

Hope this helps!
I have this same issue on my Sling HD.
It happens when I am viewing from a remote location and it happens when I am watching on the same network via my PC??
Connection drops, when I try to reconnect it says someone else is watching?
Was working for a long time w/ out any issue. I have tried to connect from various locations and after about 10 minutes or so: I get dropped?
Can anyone help?
This is interesting because I am having the same problem with my Slingbox 350 and find responses from the company less than acceptable. For example, the links above are no good. I wouldn't mind if the connection dropped and I could reset it but it takes about a half hour before I am able to connect again. This seems to be a problem inherent in Slingbox - I wonder if there is some way I could reset it immediately but of course there is no way to find out without paying $30. And it always seems to happen just when they are going to reveal who the murderer is!
