I just bought my Theater plus yesterday and tried to set it up today. It had firmware 1.55 in it which I upgraded to 2.20. I tried my Netgear WG111v2 in it and it doesn't seem to recognize it. After reading through this whole thread, it seems that it should work since it has a Realtek 8187L chipset in it. When I go to the Network setup and try to turn on the wireless connection, it comes up with the message "no wireless router found". What do I need to do to get this to work with my Netgear Wg111v2, or won't this one work even though it has a chipset that is listed as a good one ??

I got it working with the DX adapter: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.27170

By "upgrading" to 2.20, you have locked in the Netgear firmware, so there is no chance of adding extra drivers.
The 1.55 still respected the GPL and allowed you to add improvements, but I don't know that anyone has bothered with adding wifi support.
You would need the rtl8187 driver, the Netgear firmware, and some configuration.

My unit came with the 1.55 firmware and that couldn't find my Netgear WG111v2 either. So with firmware 2.20, what wireless G/N adapters will work ?? I don't want to ordering ones that don't work. Thanks for the rapid reply.

I ended up taking back my old wifi adapter I just purchased and purchased the Zonet ZEW2546 instead.
It worlks perfectly, and the Netlfix issue I had earlier was resolved when using this wifi adapter.

Am I missing something? Do I need a specific adapter? Should I buy one or just use a wired connection?
Yep, only certain adapters are supported. If you have the ability to wire it, do it! It is easily the most stable and trouble free connection out there.
There are a number of adapters listed throughout this thread. If you want, see the section in this post on compatible adapters.

The Asus USB N-10 works very well for me. I'm able to access youtube and also login to my desktop wirelessly, and access shared folders. Playback is absolutely normal for SD video files and images, but Blu-ray rips and HD Video experiences stuttering. I guess that maybe an issue with my wireless G router. Any thoughts on this?

Forgive me if I sound like a complainer, but I find it foolish that I have had to spend so much time hunting for answers on what other adapters I can use besides the "Seagate Wifi" which is pricey at $30-$40 when many other boxes such as Sony (which is priced much less and has built in WiFi and many more streaming apps) can be used and although they may not have the "push your GoFlex portable into the drive" they offer USB ports to simply add a drive if wanted.
Even Western Digital who I was reluctant to purchase because I prefer Seagate offers an entire page dedicated to alternate adapters for their TV box. http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduse
