Currently Being ModeratedDec 28, 2010 11:15 AM (in response to Dazhill)I have two new Apple TV 2s and they're both having the same problem with connecting to the wifi router consistently. Sometimes they work fine, sometimes they don't connect and I have to pull the power cable to restart the units, then they connect just fine. Sometimes they connect but home sharing doesn't work. This is extremely frustrating.
I have contacted Apple directly and they had me update the ATV to the latest firmware version but that didn't work.
VERY IMPORTANT: The Apple techs said that nobody is calling to report these same issues. So call and open a trouble ticket so that they fix the wifi problems with the the new ATVs with their next software update.MacbookPro5,4, Mac OS X (10.6.5), Asus RT-N12 router

Started happening once Sky changed my broadband to be WEP rather than WPA, as I was having regular issues with my broadband - might the issues be linked?MacBook Pro 13 - MC375BA (+ Sony VAIO VGN-FW11S & VPCW12S1E), Mac OS X (10.6.4), + iphone4

shouldn't be related but _*DO NOT USE WEP*_. i offers no real protection at all. i would be surprised is Sky advised you to change to WEP.
at the very least you should be using WPA (or even better WPA2). MBP 2.4GHz Mac Mini G4 2 x AppleTV iPhone4 32GB iPod Classic 80GB, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

What is the issue with WEP?
it's old and is easily cracked in seconds. you might as well run no encryption as WEP is basically useless these days. WPA is the bare minimum that should be used now.
if that's why Sky suggested then the person you spoke to is an idiot.
the default setting on the Sky router is WPA-PSK. MBP 2.4GHz Mac Mini G4 2 x AppleTV iPhone4 32GB iPod Classic 80GB, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 3, 2011 10:40 AM (in response to Dazhill)The Problem: After spending a few hours with Apple Tech support, restoring Apple Tv, re-booting modem and router, disabling SSID and WPA......device still would not connect to WLAN.
The Fix: (Linksys E4200), turned-off mac filtering. restarted wifi access on apple tv and it connected on the spot. +Looks like even if you manually enter the MAC ID prior to WLAN connection, the device still won't connect.+
Once connection was established, I added the MAC ID to the filter list. No issues since.Apple TV 2Gen, Windows 7, Linksys E4200

Habe auch das Problem gehabt, mit der Fehlermeldung bei -3906 und andere -5, -100. Keiner konnte helfen.
da ich schon gesehen habe was ihr auprubirt habt, habe ich mir mein Router vorgenommen und siehe da,
Die MAC-ID die das ATV3 Sendet stimmt nicht mit demm Router überein, und habe im Router die richtige Adresse eingegeben und siehe da es get.
Ich hoffe es get bei euch auch.
