Wish: NETGEAR WNA3100 Wireless-N 300 USB Adapter support


#1

Would like to see this adapter being supported by a new firmware update. I use a WD HD TV Live player.

I bought this adapter assuming wlan dongles follow generic specifications, but after the system refused to recognize this adapter I noticed only a very few adapters are supported for this device. I assumed a “Live” device would have sufficient support for all sorts of wlan adapters.

Never assume. The unit supports specific chipsets.

I know, assumption is the mother of all **bleep**ups, but even then; it is quite unusual that adapter support is so limited. It is not what you expect as a customer for a device with networking capabilities.
