Could anyone please confirm with me if Roku Soundbridge M1000 supports WPA?
I've read from another Forum that it doesn't - only WEP is supported.
But from the threads on this Forums, it seems that it does support WPA.
I've bought a Pinnacle Soundbridge and I can confirm it doesn't support WPA.
I'm not thinking to buy a second hand Roku Soundbridge M1000 (as it's no longer in production).
Hi, Welcome to the forum.
"I've bought a Pinnacle Soundbridge and I can confirm it doesn't support WPA."
Erm - yes, it can and does.
You need to read a bit more...
From the threads on this forum (and elsewhere...)
M1001 (models with connectors at the back), Pinnacle HomeMusic (M400PX) and R1000 can support WPA/WPA2 with more recent firmwares (3.0.44 being standard, 3.0.52 beta being the last and very stable)
M500, M1000, M2000 (connections at the ends and with removable WiFi card) can only handle WEP due to hardware limitations (true with any firmware).
All units are 802.11b only, so require your WiFi router to support mixed mode (b/g or b/g/n) operation. Most do.
Lastly, in case you were wondering, there is no difference in the WiFi capabilities between Roku and Pinnacle models. To add to the confusion, many M1001 units are labelled M1000 at the front. Ignore that. it is the label at the back and the start up message which counts.
