So I’m getting a little miffed. I got a new wd live plus yesterday, and I want it to work in the 5ghz range with my router. Apparently there are like only 2 usb adapters that are 5ghz on the approved list, and of those only revision 1 firmware works with the router. It’s impossible for me to determine what Amazon will ship me or what I can pick up from best buy. I even just ordered the trendnet TEW-664UB, and after searching their website I had no issue to believe there was anything other than version 1.0R… OH but guess what, Amazon.com shipped me a 1.1.R, and while it sees the wireless networks, nothing will make it get an IP from any network, locked down or not. This is very frustrating. I want to be able to use the max speed and capabilities of my e3000 router, but can’t get proper wireless support from you all. Why didn’t you just bundle a dual-band wireless card in the live? Why don’t you give us ssh access to the box? I’ve been a linux admin for 13 years and can compile the darn modules myself if I have to.
Here are the ONLY 5ghz supported usb wireless adapters on the list:
WL-329 V1 001
Good luck finding those new somewhere… sigh
