There are a lot of wireless connection problems out there but I did not see this issue.  I am able to connect to wireless, hence, getting an IP from my router, however, it doesn't see my network (NAS) all the time.  When I show info on the connection, there's no default gateway.  There's no option to manually enter all the values either.  There were times when I could see my NAS and play video but it can stop in the middle and say media file lost. 

NAS: Buffalo Technology - LinkStation Live™ - LS-CHL

Can you see shares on your PC?    Does your NAS have a built in UPnP server?  If so, can you see that?

I also use a NAS (D-Link DNS-323) and can see it just fine. I have assigned it a static IP from my router... not sure if this helps but is useful for other things.

Yup, I have no problem seeing them at all on my PCs and laptop.  I also assigned a static IP from my router.  For some reason, it comes up every once a while.  I just upgraded my firmware to 1.06N, and I do see my network now.  Hopefully it will stick longer. 

Thanks for your advice.  I'll give an update later to how 1.06N works on my machine.

That Buffalo LinkStation appears to have a "Built-in DLNA CERTIFIED streaming media server", so you should also look into enabling that, and see if you can find it under UPNP on the O!Play.

@Trimble Epic

Thanks for you advice.  I think I know why.  It's a speed problem.  From the status on my router (D-Link DIR-655), it shows that it's connected with 802.11n (2.4GHz) @ the Rate(Mpbs) of 2!!!  I think it's too slow to recognize that it's connected.  Is there anyway to improve the speed?  I tried to switch to G (which I am getting 52Mpbs) but the connection between Air and my router remains slow.
