I just bought our second MTV3700TD and am looking forward to sharing recordings across the network between devices/rooms.


One room doesn't have ethernet behind the TV and so I was excited to see an item under Settings/System/Network called "Wireless Networks". I've tried plugging in a DLink USB Wifi adaptor but the system doesn't recognize it. 


Has anyone had success using a WiFi adaptor and if so, what brand/model do you use and does it stream content across the network ok?

According to their website you should be able to get one at any retailer that sells MagicTV.

I just emailed MagicTV (Dish) but they don't have any adaptors left or know where I can get one. Does anybody have experience with the Wi-Fi adaptor and want to sell theirs? I guess I can always run an old Wi-Fi router bridged behind the TV and plug an Ethernet cable into that.
