Hi all,

I bought this WLAN stick for my WD TV LIVE:

MSI-US300EX-WLAN-USB-Adapter
http://www.amazon.de/MSI-US300EX-WLAN-USB-Adapter-Netzwerkkarte/dp/B002U0MN8A

I see my router (LINKSYS WNR854T) on the "network search" - page. But I can't connect automatically to it (no ip address received). When adding the router manually to the WD TV LIVE then I can save
the settings. Then I do "check internet connection" and DNS check fails (IP works).

Why doesn't DNS setting work? I've entered the IP of my router in the DNS field. I have also tried putting in the direct DNS ip, but doesn't work either.

Can you please help me on how to fix this issue?

PS. Wired network connection works 100% fine! Other computers with WLAN cards can connect to the router without any problems at all (=> DHCP works!).
