I would like to connect my Onkyo TX-NR616 AVR via an USB adaptor to my home wifi network.
I know that I can get one from Onkyo: UWF-1 wich is the recommended adaptator but I'm looking for a cheaper solution.
I wonder if anyone just tried another brand of usb apadtor with this particular AVR and got good results.
I was tempted to buy one of these:
I searched on the internet and the only information I got is this youtube video http://youtu.be/0xe9uiemK0U but de AVR model is different but it gives you an idea of what I want to do.
Please share your experiences!
**Sorry my english is not perfect, it's a second language.
Nobody reply to my question but I just want to let you know that I recently bought the USB adaptor : TP-Link TL-WN722N
It works just perfect!!
The onkyo adaptor is really expensive (45 $) compared to the TP-Link (15$).
Just want to share my experience and confirm that this is a good choice if you do so.
I read to many forum that the other models that I listed in my previous message are not working at all so be sure to choose the TP-Link TL-WN722N and Enjoy!
Finally I got the steps by steps from Onkyo as blow: (The TL-wn722n also works for me well.)
If you see the blank/dark screen like me then you need to unplugging power for 10 sec before start process as my case. Then start proess as below.
When you select the USB Input button/option on the receiver, wait for the "NOW INTIALIZING" message to show and disappear- then install the UWF-1 onto the USB port of the receiver. You should be able to see the WIRELESS SETUP screen for the UWF-1- You should see the screen below:
Select the preferred SETUP option and press ENTER. Now select VIEW NETWORKS and you should now see the available SSIDs. Select your SSID/ home Wi-Fi network and press ENTER again. Now scroll down to KEY and input your Passphrase (Security Password/ Passkey) and then select the default KEY ID (if required and based on your home Wi-Fi Configuration (WEP security: select 1-4) and then scroll down to OK and press ENTER again. Now select REFRESH and it should soon tell you the CONNECTION STATUS of the UWF-1 and receiver onto your Wi-Fi network.
If you are attempting to use the AUTO SETUP, when prompted- select PUSH BUTTON and follow the screens below:
And if you select PIN CODE; follow the instructions below:
Yes, I did that too but I ended up have to open pc every time I want to stream anything. Basically, I lost all the internet/wifi features from TX-NR616 .
However, I just found the way to make it work now from Onkyo USA. I posted the steps by steps and it should show up once admin approved here.
THis HIFI uses the UWF-1 dongle key, I think I'll buy an alternative TL-WN721N or TL-WN722N or Netgear WNA1100
But I don't know how to configure wireless .....
