Many people wants wireless-adapters on this device
(I'll add some facts on wiki ) in short here
I have to say wireless is consuming power of CPU / currently we have low throughput over netfs /
Wireless card is controled by module/driver a CPU load is depends on chipset some wireless adapters have only radio chip and some features are controled by driver=CPU.PC(wifi) <. . . . /wireless/ . .. . > AP(wifi)--USBnetAdapter==WDTV
Attached wireless (AP/router) into ethernet usb adapter if you need wireless conectivity.
Keep in mind wireless is working on free radio band which can be distored with many other devices
if you want have stable and smooth playback inclusive low bitrates HD(curently imposible to play) you need wired adapters
many adapters have 11-54mbit communication link speed /tech. standards802.11b/g less 802.11n or propietary/
this is enought for SD movies but only if you have stable wireless connection /no packet lost/
but for HD movies I think you should forgot now
Wireless is not useable if you live in big city with many wireless devices
Speed isnt issue.
Issue is packet lost and latency if you copying files over wireless connection which have 3-6% packet lost nothink happends.
But if you playback movie and high bitrates movie movie will be jerky or not very smooth /its like on youtube if you havent prebuffered movie you have to wait few sec.
probably MIMO wireless routers on short distance is good choice.Wireless can be implemented later but we have to concentrate have stable network drivers and network filesystem for playback.
I am wireless fan but I am staying on the ground.
If ext3-firmware should be stable we have to stabilize it now and add less features.
I am openning discussion if Zorander could be alt_firmware owner/maintainer ?
All features will be added into one major firmware release.
Also alternatives can be released and added on wiki page but I think one major firmware release
with all features is better then more alternatives with some features and without somethink.
