Hey all; new user and first post.
I’m on my second WDTV Live Plus. (My first came basically DOA and although I was able to eventually fire it up and update the firmware, it still would regularly freeze and fail). Time to get WiFi streaming to work.
I’ve read all I could find on this forum regarding the various WiFi adapters for the Live Plus. I have read/reviewed the list on the WD support site regarding the “devices that have been tested and are known to be compatible with” my WD TV Live Plus Media Player (which is indeed running firmware 1.06.16_B). I have a D-Link DIR-625, which is one of the approved routers.
I’m looking for recommendations from this community regarding WiFi adapters that you folks =KNOW= will work based on your =first-hand experience=. I.E., you bought it (from where? That’s important); you could determine that it was the correct Model and Version/Revision; it arrived; you plugged it in and it worked (and continues to work), streaming flawlessly.
(I have the troublesome Airlink 101 Golden 150 AWLL5077. It works in every other device – laptop or desktop – that I have ever plugged it into. It does =not= work in the WD TV Live Plus. Every time, after typing in the WiFi password, the WD says “can’t connect – limited or no connectivity” or whatever that error message is. And this is 6 feet from the router with a line-of-sight view. I have know idea what “Version/Revision” it is because that info is not on the dongle and not on the packaging. Heck, I even opened a trouble-ticket with Airlink and they couldn’t tell me how to determine the “Version/Revision” and whether it was possible to upgrade it to “REV 0200”).
