I'm sorry for bumping such an old thread, but for the sake of people out there looking for answers as I did, I'll write my successful operation using WDTV Gen 1 with my Xtreamer Wireless Dongle which is RTL8191SU based (vid:pid 0bda:8172).

I followed every instruction on this amazing thread, and used the following configuration to connect to my WPA2 network:

ROOT_DIR
Code: Select all
net.config
net.mounts
realtek-wireless-drivers-0.1.app.bin
S00custom-options
wireless-mod-wdlxtv.app.bin
wpa_supplicant.conf


net.config
Code: Select all
#replace SN with the Serial Number of your flash drive
    FLASH="/tmp/mnt/MY_DRIVE_SN"
    SSID="MY_SSID_NAME"
    wifidev="wlan0"

    #Patch for realtek wlan0 devices
    echo "${wifidev}   0:0 755 *(/etc/hotplug/net.agent)" >> /etc/mdev.conf

    # if you do not set a hostname,a random one is assigned.
    #You can override the hostname here:
    HOST=wdtv

    # attempt to set jumbo frames
    #MTU=9000

    #this is for an open wireless setup
    #WIFITOOL=IWTOOLS

    #uncomment this if you need WPA or WPA2 etc..
    #when using this, you MUST configure wpa_supplicant
    WIFITOOL=WPASUP

    #wireless
    if [ ! -f /tmp/running_net.config ]; then
    logger "Starting IW Tools.."
    touch /tmp/running_net.config

    #your driver goes here
    #uncomment the correct one
    modprobe -v 8712u
    #modprobe -v 8192cu
    #modprobe -v r8187l

    ifconfig ${wifidev} up

    case ${WIFITOOL} in

    IWTOOLS)
    sleep 5
    echo ${wifidev}
    iwconfig ${wifidev} mode Managed 2>> ${FLASH}/iwifi

    iwconfig ${wifidev} essid ${SSID}

    ;;

    WPASUP)

    if [ -x ${FLASH}/wpa_supplicant.conf ]; then
    if [ ! -x /tmp/wpa_supplicant.ctrl ]; then
    logger "IWIFI: WPASUP"
    modprobe -v ieee80211_crypt_tkip
    #modprobe -v ieee80211_crypt_ccmp
    #modprobe -v ieee80211_crypt_wep
    wpa_supplicant -B -Dwext -i ${wifidev} -c ${FLASH}/wpa_supplicant.conf
    fi
    fi

    ;;


    esac

    logger "Finished IW Tools.."
    else
    logger "net.config called again.."
    fi

    #
    # Static IP Configuration: (only if not DHCP)
    DHCP=yes
    #IP=192.168.1.15
    #NM=255.255.255.0
    #GW=192.168.1.1
    #DNS1=192.168.1.1
    #DNS2=205.171.3.65

    #do not load any network drivers (saves memory)
    #this should ALWAYS be here when using these drivers!!!!
    SUPPRESS_OTHERS=yes

    #Lines below are only needed if network device is not listed
    #in /etc/mdev.conf (see patch at top of file)
    #starts dhcp client request
    #udhcpc -b -p /tmp/udhcp.pid -S -i ${wifidev}

    #setup ip address statically from previously
    #defined variables.
    #ifconfig ${wifidev} ${IP} ${NM} up#


note that the serial number is essential for the process to work, and you can get it using "vol H:" in windows where H: is your thumb drive letter.

wpa_supplicant.conf
Code: Select all
ctrl_interface=/tmp/wpa_supplicant
network={
   ssid="MY_SSID_NAME"
   psk="MY_SSID_PSK"
   key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
   proto=RSN WPA
   pairwise=CCMP TKIP
   group=CCMP TKIP
}


I used realtek-wireless-drivers-0.1.app.bin by freak and wireless-mod-wdlxtv.app.bin by b-rad I found on the internet.
This configuration works great, and I'll be happy to assist anyone with the same components. Thank you very much Amis, Alicia, freak and b-rad.

Good Luck.

Thank you for sharing this info :)

I was about to dig my WDTV Gen1... (I do have WDTVLive HD Gen 2 and 3 but have 3 TVs)
