TP Link must have changed their hardware with Version 3.   Only 2.2 was tested as verified.

You should update your firmware, its way out of date and a number of new adaptors, including the one above (V2.2) were added. However you must do it with caution as your firmware does not have a good upgrade manager and your unit could stop working permanently. Download the latest firmware 1.02.21 from your computer and upgrade via a USB flash drive, do not use the WDTV’s inbuilt downloader. Follow all the instructions on the upgrade page.

After upgrading reset the unit via the side button, reset to factory defaults via the internal menu. unplug the unit from the power supply for some minutes (not seconds). Now try your USB adaptor and if you are lucky it may work.

New! TP-Link Wireless N USB adapter TL-WN821N Ver 2.2
