Hello does anyone know of any WiFi dongle that works ok with the HDR-FOX T2 with the Wireless Helper software installed?
As noted above, you need a dongle built around a chip set for which the HDR-FOX's firmware has the appropriate driver included, ie the RT-3070. As usual, after 10 years, the world of IT has moved on and the newer (cheap) WiFi dongles are built around chip sets which are easily available now (ie not RT-3070), and which are not compatible with the HDR-FOX firmware.Hello does anyone know of any WiFi dongle that works ok with the HDR-FOX T2 with the Wireless Helper software installed?
I suspect that is a local rather than a systematic problem - poor signal perhaps.I used one of those from the list, but found I got problems at times with maintaining the link (don't now remember details)
How long ago was that? It's on for £3.96 now.I have the dongle from Ebay detailed in my link above, if they supply you with the same item they supplied me, it will work on the Humax HDR-Fox T2 and will cost you £5
They might, but it may well work as a WiFi dongle under other circumstances, and how do you prove it's not a "Ralink RT3070" dongle as described? If it is, and it works, that's all well and good. If it doesn't, even if you get your money back it's wasted time.And if it doesn't and you tell them they will probably just refund you without having to send it back.
Be aware the item linked in the wiki ( https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/311745548610 ) is one of those that permanently shows 'last one' regardless of how many are sold! I can confirm it works though.August 2018, BTW, There are only a few still available from this site
