I recently purcased a new WD TV Live Plus.
My desire was to get an adapter for my router and play away with Neflix.
Well, i got an adapter plugged everything up and the WD TV Live Plus will not recognize my wireless. I took the adapter back because I’m pretty sure it’s not compatible.
I have a Linksys WRT54G V8 router.
I do not see it listed in the knowledgebase. Or, if it’s there, my head is spinning so that I may have
overlooked it. I’m pretty much drunk on confusion at this point.
Will the WRT54G V8 work and if so, what adapter/s will comply? Or, will I have to purchase a new router and compatible adapter for this product to work?
Should I update the firmware for the router?
Should I update the firmware for the WD TV? This appears to be a frightening task. e.g., “if the power fails during update, drop your WD TV Live Plus off at the nearest recyle bin.” I’m thinking, “this is a bit drastic.” Sort of like putting your hand in the blender with the button on. I have read a good bit of your forum but have not found my specific question addressed.
Of course, I’m an old fart and could have missed it. At times I feel like my proctologist. Lots of searching, little reward. The last time he took a look, I did request that he confirm with my wife that my head was not up there. He said the tests were inconclusive. Thanks doc!
I would appreciate any help, tips, drugs you guys and gals might suggest to help me get this product up and running.
