mede8er500x2 can't connect to home wife
« on: June 14, 2017, 06:37:37 am »
Please help.  I am no IT genius.

Bought this 5 years ago and have never used the wifi or network function.  Only copied movies and shows from an external.  I am unable to connect to wifi.  It does not want to pick up my home wifi.  What to do?  I have also never updated my mede8er.  Is this necessary and how do I do this?

Thanx
Bennie

Is there. A wifi-unit mounted in the 500x2 ?? I ask this because most soled 500x2 don't have this unit mounted. If this is the case you have to use the lan input (cable).

What do you mean by wifi unit?  There is a thing that looks like an arial?

Anyway, I managed to get it to connect, but can't use my keyboard as a mouse.  The mouse is not visible?

For the GUI all you get is a keyboard Remote Emulator. The mouse is only used by the Web Browser, and you must have a ball or touchpad mouse integrated with the keyboard, like the med2key.
