I just bought a wd tv live device last week and had no end of problems trying to connect it not only to the net, but to my network as well.
I found the issue was that it was already assigned an ip address straight out of the box, and was unable to ‘automatically’ figure out my connections. I had to enter the ip address, dns and gateway etc, manually which is a pain in butt!!
The problem is, im sure if the device needs resetting, I will have to go back and enter all of hese details in AGAIN!!!
Not happy WD!!
