How to connect the WPCTV3000 to a wireless network.
Last Updated 5 years ago

While Ethernet is the recommended mode of operation for streaming, the WPCTV3000 can be used via a wireless 802.11 channel as well. 

The first step to take is to install the airfun software provided on the inculded disk or downloaded here.

Once the device is connected to power, and a display, you will need to connect to it via a wireless connection to set it up. The device will put out an SSID of WPCTV3000, by default. Once you have connected to that access point, you will lose internet access, but that is fine at this stage.
