If you bought it second hand with crystalbuntu, it's likely there is NO WIFE. The crystalbuntu build is custom for a CHIP that is added after market enabling 1080p playback. Original the unit only did 720.

The chip REPLACES the wifi chip leaving you with 1080p, but ethernet only

when installing cb2 to your apple tv1 you don't have to keep usb stick in when using xbmc. and maybe the wireless card has been removed and replaced with a CHD card, that's why wireless might not work...

If it is in fact m missing a WiFi card you would need to purchase the correct chip on line. It would be easier to open the box and see what card you have. There are 100s of YouTube videos on how to open the atv1.

You don't need other forums just yet :) we are add still more than capable of answering these questions. I have and have used this hardware/software combo

if you said your wireless worked before you installed cb, the wifi card must be in there... NO need to open the box up.... if I remember correctly there's a program in cb2 xbmc called "network manager" either it is installed with cb or you have to install it. when you open network manager look for your wifi user name and click on it then enter your wifi pw and you should have your wifi working again with CB2. that was a common problem peeps were having when installing cb2... you need network manager. it will work. I have had it working that way before I got my Ouya. the Ouya is all I use now....

RE: CB2 - Original Internal Wireless Not working
SSH into your ATV1

Copy and paste in each step 1~5 one at a time.


1. sudo apt-get update
2. sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter
3. wget hxxp://mirror2.openwrt.org/sources/broadcom-wl-5.10.56.27.3_mipsel.tar.bz2
Replace the x's in hxxp:// with t's
4. tar xfvj broadcom-wl-5.10.56.27.3_mipsel.tar.bz2
5. sudo b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware broadcom-wl-5.10.56.27.3/driver/wl_apsta/wl_prebuilt.o
6. reboot
7. Ssh in again,ifconfig should show the new wlan0.
8. Go to System > Add-ons under XBMC.org in Program and install Network-Manager
9. In Programs open Network-Manager and click “Add” you should then see your SSID.
Enter your password. That's it !

redo your usb stick... when you made up your stick you had 2 options. 1-to run xbmc from usb stick and 2-install xbmc to atv harddrive. if you want to run xbmc without the stick pick option to install to HD.
