Wifi for the atv1 with osmc

hi can you please ad wifi capability on the apple tv 1 with the new osmc, this would be most appreciated, thanks Phil

Wifi is working on the ATV1 as on any other device supported by OSMC.
So if you have a problem with a specific Wifi Adpater open a new thread providing logs.
Also I suggest you read thru the forum thread around Apple TV as the Wifi topic has been discussed in there multiple times.

To get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing we need more information from you. Please see How to submit a useful support request - General - OSMC for advice on how to help us.

If you are referring to internal WiFi, have a search, but more importantly, chuck the internal adapter in favour for a CrystalHD card.


Has support for the Apple TV’s built-in Wi-Fi card been added?

If not, could I just use a USB Wi-Fi adapter which I have lying around?

You can just install b43-fwcutter and it will work

Hello, thak you for this information.
Was there any possibility of including the installation of b43-fwcutter im a next version?
Most of us (at least I) probably did not know how to install it.
Thanks for listening.

Sorry for my english.

Search the forum. It has been covered

hi Sam b43-fwcutter is not working on the atv1 tried loads of times any help would be great thanks Phil

You should start a new thread explaining what you tried to do.

Otherwise just use a USB dongle. You should be using a CrystalHD card, which replaces the WiFi card which uses b43-fwcutter anyway.


hi Sam just tried a usb wifi dongle and wifi works fine thanks
