    Exclamation What wireless dongle works with the Dream 800HD ?

    me mates thinking of getting a dream box and wants it wireless, is there any specific chip set needed to do it, and I've seen it once before the wireless plugin, but can't find it now, any ideas where it is, I've brought a few dongles home with me to try but can't find the "wireless plugin" I'll keep looking as I've seen it before some where in the menus!

    Re: What wireless dongle works with the Dream 800HD ?

    Thanks for the files, transfered them to the dream var/ and i can't see it under any settings on the dream box? any ideas where i should be looking, do i have to download a plug in? i have a couple of wireless dongles that i want to try and see if i can get them working before purchasing one of ebay.....cheers


    EDIT: ok it would seem that if the wireless dongle is compatibl then the Wi_Fi option will appear under network options....according to the net that is....


    You know what guys i think i'll just set up a wireless bridge between a couple of routers, sounds easier than messing on with a dongle etc...

    Have just tried one of these,had it in the drawer,and the DBUK image recognizes it and it even finds my wireless router,
    but it wont connect or even get an ip address,strange???

    Might have a play later if I can find some drivers

    Re: What wireless dongle works with the Dream 800HD ?

    Ok managed to get it to connect,well sort of,it wont resolve the nameserver for some strange reason and any other drivers wont install as it says the latest are already installed,

    might try uninstalling the original drivers and then trying others,

    not sure you should get one m8 but for the sake of a tenner it might be something for you to mess around with lol
