I understand the A-100 had new firmware out that the A-110 doesn't have yet. If you're on the A-100 that might explain the difference. Are you using the A-100 yourself?

RE: What Wireless USB dongle to buy
I was really hoping to find a list of compatible dongles here... Is there such a list available somewhere? Huh

Hi,

The dongle is supporting 802.11b/g/n.

Can you confirm that PCH is connected and transfering data (e.g. try copying files) at 802.11n speed?

thanks.

RE: What Wireless USB dongle to buy
Just bought myself that dongle and entered all the information (WPA2 + SSID + key). But it cannot connect. I tried to reboot, but the popcorn won't boot anymore (stays on the black loading screen). But when I remove the dongle and then reboot, no problem at all. Does anymore know the solution or problem?

Works, but crashes the PCH at full speed transfer with WPA2+TKIP AES activated via samba server.
I'm 802.11n wireless connected on a Netgear WNR834B router, and it was the first try...

edit:
the problem here seems to be exactly the same as reported on the A110:

RE: What Wireless USB dongle to buy
OK, managed to get the connection working. All the options are activated, the workgroup is MSHOME, but the PCH-100 cannot connect to internet, only LAN. Can someone help with that.

My connection is like this

Internet ---> ADSL router
_____________|_______|
___________PCH100__Laptop (used to stream with IHome)

Thanks!

RE: What Wireless USB dongle to buy
test n° #2 TL-WN821N + Router Netgear WNR834B (draft N)

PCH continues to freeze on upload via SMB server (WPA2 TKIP+AES active), but on download it works fine! Huh

No problem via FTP server, it seems to work like a charm.

I've got tired of problems -hangs- using an USB dongle. My advice, go for a wireless bridge solution.

Cheers.

RE: What Wireless USB dongle to buy
How much bandwidth are you guys getting out of these things? My 54g adapter averages "36 megabits" but the PCH seems to choke on 720p material that averages 5 megabits, whenever action gets heavy (I'm guessing that, with VBR, it may get as high as 10). This is over NFS, HTTP gets an even harder hit via MyiHome. I'm not even gonna guess what happens with SMB.

My biggest file averages about 12 megabits, so I'm guessing that at its highest point it hits something like 20-30. Can the USB dongle manage that? I have a mac filter on my router so I don't really need WEP or WPA.
