Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum, but been reading it for 2 months now, ever since I got the wdtv. I had it all planned - bought wdtv and compatible wireless adapter and hoped to enjoy the wirelessness :). The first problem was that the wdtv I bought turned out to be gen2, but fortunately b-rad took care of it - big thanks! The second problem was that the wireless WUSB54GC I bought turned out to be v3 (ID 1737:0077) so none of the drivers b-rad provided in his last release worked. But that didn't discourage me. I've read everything that was on this forum about how to compile my own wireless. Then I successfully compiled the RT3070STA v.2.3.0.1. Then I tested it on the wdtv (had wired connection to help me). There were some problems, but finally I was able to bring the device up, configure it (using the RTA2870STA.dat) and setup the static IP address. I even was able to telnet to this IP. All this was done via command line.
OK, so far so good. Then I created the app.bin package with the driver, put it on the flashdrive and changed the net.config to load my driver and set static IP. It works... but partially. The driver is loaded (I can see the light blinking), but the IP is unreachable. I cannot check what's happening, because I have both USB ports occupied :) Is there any way to see some log messages? Can they be output to a file on the flashdrive? Or, does anyone know what might be the problem?

Edit:
I enabled the DHCP and monitored the IP assignment on the router. Turns out the IP was requested by wdtv and is assigned (at least from the router point of view) but the expiration time for this IP is very low (~1 minute). Still the IP is unreachable...
Anyone?

Hi And-or,

looks like there is a way to get it running. can you please send me your compiled module so i can try for myself? 

because i have no wired usb adapter i can get my logs only by using a modified log-saver.app.bin script in combination with ext-boot. not the fastest way to work but better then nothing :(

Hi All,
If anyone is interested - turns out I did everything right, just my wireless card is damaged :( - tried it with windows and the behavior is the same. So, if anyone had the same problem - check if it is working with windows first.

I have a similar problem: belkin F6D4050 v2 (RT3070) is not working on WDTV. USB adapter led is off. It works OK in Windows.
The lsusb is:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 050d:935b Belkin Components

 lsmod
rt3070sta 645568 0 - Live 0xc052c000 (P)


Any idea?

Hi And-or,

Can you please upload your driver file and net.cfg files for the fellow community members.

I'm struggling with this adapter on my wdtv G2.
I've tried various options mentioned over various forums.But not able to get it working.

I'm able to get the driver compiled successfully in Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi And-or,

I'm able to get the driver compiled successfully in Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.

Any help is appreciated.

No one here,who uses custom firmware and USB wireless adapter?

Can anyone help me with wlxtv G2 firmware and wireless usb with any of the below adapters?
Linksys WUSB54GC V3 -- uses ralink 2050 chipset.(works in ubuntu with RTL280STA driver)
Belkin FD7050ak version 4000ak (i think that too based on ralink chipset)

ralink drivers are supposed to be inbuilt on latest G2 custom firmwares of B-RAD.
So doen't it work out of the box,with a proper net.config file?

I'm clueless as WDTV G2 doesn't have a log-saver app.bin which can give me some clue. :(

Help from people who use wirelss is highly appreciated.
