WD TV Live wont recognise my computer

Hooking up was going fine but under ‘network setting’  says 'unable to obtain an IP address. Media player has limited or no network connectivty.

Also the ‘sign in’ says ‘account’? ’ password’?

Keyboard gives me gibberish.

Thanks - p

ps - my laptop is wireless/FIOS and OS is Vista
