I have just purchased the WD TV Live device, but I’m still having trouble connecting to my PC via the above router.
When I first tried a Wired connection, I spent a day trying to get that to work and it turned out to be caused by the network cable I first used. Now using a shorter cable, it works perfectly.
Today I received a new Buffalo WLI-UC-GN USB Adapter, but I cannot seem to get it to work.
When I plug the USB adapter into the device and turn it on, a small blue light indicates that the USB adapter has been recognised. I have tried letting the device find the network, which it does (using WPA-PSK security), but after entering the correct key, it says that it is unable to find an IP address etc.
I’ve tried doing it automatically and manually, and I’ve also tried different security types, but it just cannot get an IP address from the router (which is setup to be a DHCP server).
And if I enter an IP address manually (withing the range served by the router), with correct subnet mask and DHCP and DNS addresses it still doesn’t work.
All the above addresses etc, except for the wireless details, are exactly the same as I used for the Wired setup.
I guess I’m doing something wrong, but I cannot think what it might be.
So I’m really hoping some bright spark will be able to point me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance
