Hello guys,

I use the D-Link® Wireless N Nano USB Adapter (DWA-131) on my WDTV and it seems to work correctly ;)

I've payed it about €25 at a local shop.

Hey,
i own an WD TV Live. Until now I use them on my cable lan. But today I installed an Wlan on my home.for this reason I bought a by WD TV Live supported Wlan Stick.
When I put the Wlan Stick on an USB port from the WD TV Live and boot it the WLAN settings will show up? (like the option to give the WAP2 Key and so on)
To under settings-> network settings the show only 2 buttons. Manuel or Automatic for those the  IP settings. Will there are the Wlan options show up?
Thanks for help
Stefan

I'm in the process of setting up my new D-Link® Wireless N Nano USB Adapter (DWA-131) .......... and I have to say it will only stream stuff less than 720p.  Quite dissapointed to be honest as this was recommended by others on here.

I need a wireless usb network adapter to work with the wdtv live, 1st gen I believe that has strong signal power and can grab the signal from the router which is upstairs when I am downstairs. Anyone know one that might work well?

So glad you posted this!  I just bought a NetGear adapter, and have had multiple problems - It never installed properly.  No software, and the driver itself is only 54K, should be gigabit I think.  I opened a ticket with NetGear today - we'll see what happens.

I bought a cheap DWA-125 wireless USB dongle two weeks ago, and it works great. However previously, even though I have had my Live since Feb 2010 using an ethernet connection to my router, I have never been able to access the USB drive on my ubuntu laptop and I have always had numerous issues with "no media in folder" from the other networked windows computers. Then a couple months ago, on a lark, I installed B-Rad's WDLXTV firmware, but at the time, never tried to access my laptop.

I all but gave up on networking until my WD MyBook drive, attached to the Live, quit. I tried, without much hope, accessing network shares, and lo and behold, all shares from all computers including my USB drive on my ubuntu laptop, were completely accessible. So I no longer need to have an attached drive to the Live.

So I changed from a wired to wireless connection, as well as the firmware from stock to custom, and everything works as it should.
Coincidence?
Oh BTW, the firmware on my D-Link DIR-601-A1 router, is DD-WRT v24-sp2 (02/17/11) std - build 16214

After 3 years wireless finally working!! July 2013!

Hi All,

Think the WDTV live hub is great, but always felt that it was a hassle to have it "wired" to the network. Hence I have tried
different adapters and USB wireless "dongles" but NONE have worked. Finally found a solution.

Go and buy a D-Link DHP-309AV Kit, at Amazon its 51$ but might be cheaper elsewhere..

its virtually fail safe and a plug and play, just like it should be works 100 % :)


Best of luck
