Preface: I already know there is an official list of supported wireless adapters for the WDTV Live systems.
I have a WDTV Live (not plus). I recently purchased a USB wirless adapter off ebay. From the probing I did, I found that it is a Ralink with a RT5370 chipset. When I plug this into my WDTV, I get no USB indicator, as well as no option for wireless networking.
Knowing that *many* routers and wifi adapters use Ralink chipsets (perhaps even some of the officiallly supported adapters for WDTV), could the issue I have be that my particular USB adapter doesn’t have the necessary drivers to work? I know to use this on my computer I had to download the drivers from Ralink’s site.
On a side note, I also reset my WDTV to the factory setttings, so not sure if that resets any necessary firmware I might need to connect wirelessly.
Any thoughts / suggestions appreciated. Thanks.
