I am definitely not connecting to a neighbor’s network, but it appears it is always attempting to.
I reset the router to factory defaults and tried again. Here is a more clear (I hope) explanation of what is going on:
1.“Select an Available Network”
-Other Network 2
-Other Network 3
*I select my network.*
- “Please enter the network password”
*I enter my network passcode.*
- “Network Setup”
Wireless Network - Other Network
Note that here the Wireless network it is displaying is NOT the one I chose in step one. In fact, it isn’t always the same one. Sometimes it will be “Other Network 3”, or any number of the other neighbors or even just an empty space.
Selecting automatic doesn’t work, which is no surprise considering my password wouldn’t work for the wrong network.
This same thing will happen if I manually enter my network’s name. When I get to the “Network Setup” step it will always have another network there that I did not choose.
My router is running:
802.11 Mode Mixed 802.11n, 802.11g, 802.11b
Channel Width: Auto 20/40mhz
Security: WPA-Personal, WPA2 Only (AES)
My WD Live is running latest firmware as of yesterday (obtained using a wired connection).
