    Hi I recently purchased the Wireless N D-Link Router DIR-615. After a few hiccups the router works with all of our computers, blackberry's, wireless printer and Ipod touch's however my Apple TV 1G will not connect to the network.

    The Apple TV will just give the error code -6 after the password for the network has been entered.

    I double checked that the password for the router is only WEP 10 hex digits and that it is correct
    Unplugged the Apple TV and replugged it in.

    I have tried reseting the Apple TV to the factory settings and using the DHCP Reservation in the network settings of the router and manually configuring the TC/IP settings on the Apple TV (Not quite sure what I am doing with this though so put everything back). I have also tried switching the 802.11 settings on the router to all of the available options and nothing is working.

    The Apple TV worked just fine on our old router which was a Linksys compact wireless-g broadband router WRT54GC

    I would really appreciate any help on this, Thanks

    Also the Apple TV will connect to a open WI-FI network in the area that has no password

    It's important to get the latest firmware for that router. The shipping version is not good. After updating reset to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

    heres a site for the firmware http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=DIR-615
    BUT as
    There are multiple revisions of the DIR-615, each with revision specific drivers, firmware, installation guides, and other resources. - you need to identify the revision level
