what would cause an apple TV not to connect to a wireless network, doesn't even see a network, tried it on a few different networks.

    The router is too far away, or is set to not broad cast it's SID, or is requiring MAC address authentication.  You will likely save your self a bunch of headach if you use a wired connection.  Trying to do streaming video over WiFi rarely works very well.

    thanks for that but my airport express is 2 meters away streaming was working fine, all apps and itunes were working really well, phone to ATV also working very well, a bit of latency nothing I couldn't work with.

    So why did you report you have no network connection if all your apps and services are connection to it?

    it was working fine but now its not. I was very impressed with the unit until, I disconnected it to use the mirroring in work and thats when the problem started. it just won't pick up any wireless network

    I have the same issue with an apple tv.  one out of about 25.  Just quit - won't see any wireless networks.  Tried in different locations, did a factory restore (via wired, of course).  nada.  replaced with one that wasn't getting much use elsewhere. It was solid as a rock, had no trouble seeing and using wireless.  Really seems like a hardware issue to me.
