    Arrow AppleTv as accesspoint

    Hi everybody.

    Since I got my AppleTv (I have it 3 days now), i wanted to turn it into an Draft N Accesspoint.
    I found only this information in the forum:

    Apple TV as AccessPoint, Bridge, or Simple Router - howto

    But it doesn't work here. I tried it in factory settings and once after updating it.

    I'm hanging already at this point (without update):
    sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Support/networksetup -setairportpower on

    The systems always tells me there is no such command, but i played a bit with the command and there seems to be one like this:
    sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Support/networksetup-panther -setairportpower on
    I am not shure about the orthographe, because i now updated the Apple Tv to version 1,1 , and there seems to be no RemoteManagement directory.
    All in all, it tells me that it is impossible to turn Airport power on. So I am stuck there

    Anybody who managed to get this working?
    For information, I have the 160gb Version, but this shouldn't really matter.

    I am very happy for every reply on this

    your problem is because you updated to 1.1, all of the networking bits required by that walkthrough were tossed by apple. what you'll need to do is revert to factory defaults which will bring you back to 1.0, use patchstick again, and then use the safe update procedure to retain your networking/remotemanagement bits while updating the core frameworks and binaries to 1.1. you can follow that here:
    http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/YouTu...ch#Safe_Update

    then you should be able to continue with the accesspoint walkthrough.

    Will the access point hack really make the appletv an access point?

    I mean will it forward the dhcp to my router and just work as a transparent access point and not as the shared networking solution found in macs (which assign IP addresses to pcs that connect wirelessly through them). This is an issue to me as I run servers inside my network and if the appletv will assign new addresses that will not allow me to connect to the servers in my "main" network.

    i couldn't say if it will work as you want it or not, i just noticed the problem you were having with it was with something missing from 1.1 that should be in 1.0 as the walkthrough more than likely was written back before 1.1 was released. i might check out the walkthrough as it would free up another airport express that i could use elsewhere. i'll let you know if i find anything helpful.

    Ok, I'm stuck again.
    This time, I've done everything as described in the Tutorials and I can't get the Applications Plug-in to work. I used Patchstick and downloaded it from the Awkward Plug-in.

    I have, or at least tried to disable Watchdog (following the method 2 on this site Watchdog on AwkwardTV),
    but everytime I try to launch the System Preferences Application, Backrow continues to run, bringing my Application to the Background and after a few seconds, the AppleTV reboots..

    My AppleTV now runs on 1.1, updated following the safe update guide

    I have followed everything as described, simply copied the commands and pasted them in my Ssh window, but I can't get it working..

    Ok, I have realised how to turn System Preferences on.
    So I did this, configured everything and it worked for some time, at high speed.
    I was so happy that I closed the Preferences window and then, my connection was gone.

    What has happened?
    Finder seems to return off Wireless when relaunched. So it is possible to use wireless connectivity, when Finder.app isn't running.
    But this wasn't the goal..

    So I tried to permanently turn on Airport, but when I enter:

    sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Support/networksetup-panther -setairportpower on
    ,
    it says "You cannot set AirPort power because all AirPort network services are disabled."

    I googled and searched the forums now for some time, but I didn't find anywhere the missing infos.

    So, has anyone got this to work?

    In fact, I also have another point that isn't right here.
    As I wrote before, the command as stated on several pages
    sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Support/networksetup -setairportpower on ,
    doesn't exist. The only command in that folder is:
    ./networksetup-panther -setairportpower on

    I have everything else working, did the safe update, but this still seems a bit false.

    It would be so great if I could get this to work, so I don't need to buy an Airport Extreme Base Station

    coobie, i was let on to the fact that if you rename the KernelEventMonitor.bundle in /System/Library/SystemConfiguration/ it will stop the appletv from killing wireless on boot, if you have ethernet plugged in.

    while this does allow you to setup your own airport access, it does have a lot of drawbacks. it will show up as being connected to wireless in the appletv settings, while still being connected by ethernet and any service that needs internet or lan access on your appletv (atvloader, syncing, streaming, youtube, movie trailers, popular music from itunes, etc.) will not work. but if you connect to your drives by smb, afp, or nfs, and have mountpoints for them, those will still work.

    for now, you can have your accesspoint, if you want to lose a serious amount of functionality.

    Thanks Maraklov for this tip, but that doesn't sound that interesting and is not really what I was hoping for.

    Indeed, I did some more research and found this little wiki:

    NAS_via_Ethernet_on_a_Primarily_Wireless_Network#K nown_Problems

    Here, the author says that it is the finder that always kills the Airport, as already noted, and has written some code to prevent this. This deamon just corrects what is going wrong.

    Has anyone already tried this out?
    I'm a bit afraid as I don't know exactly what to put between the " " and I won't break my nice setup.

    In fact, does my Laptop always lose connectivity to my "router" before the deamon corrects the ip and everything? Or does this run smoothly without lags?

    Anyone who knows a bit better what to put in this code to complete it than I do?

    If it is possible, I would maintain the whole online functionality, and have that router I ever wanted, as the AppleTv is on all time and so, this would be a great additional feature.
