I am getting Error -3906 on my Apple TV. I have it connect to the Apple Airport Extreme.


Can anyone help with advice? I cannot find any significant answers anywhere on the net.

Apple TV (3rd generation), iOS 6

    I had the same problem. I just solutioned it just by disabling MAC Address filtering in my LinkSys router. This is strange as I did enter the address of my ATV3 in the list of allowed devices in the router configuration software.

    The truth is that it now works! I just seems that ATV is not compatible with MAC Address filtering.

    airport routers have the MAC address filtering option just like other routers so he could give it a try
