I have the Airlink Model AWLL5077 (Ver. 0200) wireless adapter, which is on the supported wireless adapter list for the WDTV Live Plus. Unfortunately, after upgrading to 1.04.17_B my device no longer recognizes this wireless adapter. I’ve rolled back the firmware to 1.02.21 and it’s working again.
The Airlink wireless adapter works up through firmware 1.04.10; however, 1.04.10 does not work with Playon. Fortunately, WD fixed the playon compatibility issue with 1.04.17 however they broke compatibility with the Airlink at the same time. SIGH.
Could someone from WD please respond with an anticipated timeline (even a rough estimate) about when a bug-fix firmware update will be coming to correct this problem? I do not have the option of running a wired connection to this particular WDTV (I have 2 and the other does have a wired connection) and I purchased the Live Plus relying upon WD’s statement that it is compatible with my wireless adapter. Content updates via firmware are nice but worthless if you dump support for previously supported wireless adapters at the same time.
I’m hopeful that this will be corrected soon. Look forward to WD’s reply.
