do I need to change something or add something?
Nothing that I do helps to make working my wireless.

Does new firmware make changes in the main menu because on my wdtv only background is changed?

What about with other config files do I need to change them to?

Do I need to somehow transfer those files on WDTV or is there some console tool on wdtv?

I red something that it needs to put some file on wdtv? How to do that?

Wireless works fine on WDTV G2 models.

I got it working with a zydas 1211 based adapter.
(Belkin F5D7050ak) .

You can get it working smoothly if you have adapters based on below chipsets.

Quote
# rt3070sta usb wireless
# rt2870sta usb wireless
# rt3572sta usb wireless
# rt2572 usb wireless
# arusb_lnx usb wireless
# rtl8712 usb wireless

If you've a linux pc, get the below outputs and identify the chipset properly.

1. lsusb
2. dmesg and look for the messages when u plug the hardware
3. /var/log/messages--- look for messages when u plug usb.

Once you get the above and pin point your adapter chipset/ driver module needed. its easier to configure.

Sometimes you need to load additional modules with app.bin files or .ko modules.
My card was not working with inbuilt drivers.

So I'd to follow the procedure from below thread:
