No, that's for the Gen1- a different device with a different cpu architecture

Hi,

It's possible to write a wireless.app.bin like this onto my player?

My D-link DWA131 chipset is RTL8192CU and It has a linux driver.

What dou you think?

Sorry, but I can not do that, because I am a noob, and I dont understand programing on linux or other OS.

I will be happy if anybody can do that!

Sadly, you can't add support for new wireless chips because they have to be supported by:
1. The kernel - which is signed by WD and we can't replace or recompile (the hardware will not boot an unsigned kernel) and
2. The osd - DMAOSD - which is closed source and can't be enhanced.

So, only WD can add support for new wifi chips, but won't because this device is end of life.

Sorry, it's a dead end, but you can research it further. Please let us know if you find a way.
