Lost wireless connectivity...   

Postby apsheron » Sun Apr 18, 2010 12:50 pm

I finally decided to give wdlxtv a try and after what otherwise seemed to be a successful upgrade, lost my wireless connectivity. I had it solid before, and now the Buffalo Nfiniti adapter does find my router but refuses to connect, and the player displays the message 'Unable to obtain an IP address. The player has limited or no connectivity.' I haven't changed ANY setting since upgrading to wdlxtv, so I have no idea what's going on. Are there any known issues similar to this? I searched this forum, but found nothing...

I tried just about anything, including trying to set up the connection manually, resetting my wireless router, etc. Nada...

Please, if anybody knows anything or have any suggestion, I'd really appreciate any help. Thanks.

You could try setting the wd to dhcp and have the router assign an address based on MAC. Based on your description though it doesn't sound like it is router-wireless adapter issue.
