Have you got the ethernet in the Apple TV still?

No I removed it, but it still does not go away. I restarted my router. I restarted apple by unpluggin it from the power cord. Nothink is making the Ethernet go away. I also tried entering the config settings manually. Still does not work. This is driving me crazy. Apple wants $19 to talk to me on the phone. My kids spend that in a day by watching movies from ITunes. These people are crazy.

Did you unplug the ethernet from AppleTv not just the router? I've found even a non-terminated cable plugged in disables wifi.
Daft as it sounds, sometimes if the router is too close it can cause communication issues over wifi.
If ethernet was working, why change to wifi?
Can you confirm ethernet does still work and that AppleTV is not just 'stuck' in ethernet mode.
Unplugging was a good test as that often corrects issues.
It is possible your AppleTV software is somehow corrupted - restore via itunes using microUSB to eliminate that possibility, or that AppleTV hardware has failed and is 'stuck' thinking ethernet is connected.

Have a look at some of the other threads on here to see if it is the same issue that is driving many of us with ATVs to distraction, since Apple's latest udate.
is one such discussion.
Apple's approach to this has been disappointing to say the least.

If you have a ADSL wifi router, first unplug the Ethernet cable from Apple TV.
Verify your network name and security access . Create a new wifi network with different name on the router (take registration of new name and new pwd).
Reset the Apple TV and in the main configuration menu (General) select
Network then you should find the new wifi network.
Select it and complete any other configuration option you need.
Remember ATV2 is a media player for the Apple media store and for a connected iTunes server.
You can verify network and signal with a different device like mobile phone.

Hi, I ended up buying a 3rd gen Apple TV. It works fine now.
