Which Wifi dongle for A-110?
I want to place our PCH A-110 in our bedroom. There we only want to watch series and children movies. No HD movies, because those we still watch donwstairs. Since I don't want to use cables, I want to buy a wifi-dongle. But the WN-100 is not available anymore. Can we use the WN-150? Or is there another solution?

No you can't use the WN-150. It's Realtek chip based and the WN-100 is Atheros.

You can buy the WN100 if you search around:

There are other Atheros chip USB dongles that do work. They are advertised as compatible with the A110 though. Seen them at Pixmania and other EU sites.

Personaly a secondhand router or wireless access point that then gives an ethernet connection rather than USB connection is the way to go if you must use WiFi

A400: SD Card(Apps), HDMI C200: USB(Apps), BD ROM (SH-B083L(SB01)), HDMI
CAT6 Wired Network: TV Panasonic TX-P42G20, HP ProCurve 1400-8G, Netgear GS-608/605, Synology CS407

Hi all

it's been for a while that I don't enter into the forum (maybe years Tongue )

yesterday I found that the usb dongle tplink TL-WN822N works with popcorn A-100

http://www.tp-link.com/es/products/produ...=TL-WN822N

actually I'm watching CBS news from it Smile

I've thought that could be useful for somebody and that's why I've decided to post it in networkedmediatank forum

best regards from Spain

You could - but you'll need to put it into repeater mode if it has one otherwise you'll hit issues with the Internet router you are using.
I've re-used an old netgear dg834n as a repeater for my PCH-A210 in the bedroom and sent the network to it using some 200Mb Power Over Ethernet plugs which gives enough bandwidth to stream from the PCH-A110 downstairs (or send stuff to it - works either way...).

Failing wanting to invest in POE, I originally bought a TP-Link TL-WN821N (currently on Amazon UK for £11.22 with free shipping - >here < ) back when I had the house on wireless. It worked fine with the PCH-A110, but did occasionally stutter with higher bitrate stuff.

NB: Depending on your firmware release you may need to re-apply the IP address after power cycling as you'll want a fixed IP to be able to consistently find it for copying/reading etc.
This may now be fixed but wasn't at the time I was using it, so it dropped the address every time - hopefully fixed, but at least now you know if it isn't!
