From what I can glean from the TD forums, there's no English manual available yet, which could make it hard going setting up such a specialised receiver.
Otherwise I might be tempted to buy one. I think one is going to be produced shortly though.

Belated thanks for this link.

I have since explored manuals and forums to learn more about TD and can now connect to internet via ethernet cable link. I would prefer wireless if poss. I have an asus wl-167g usb wlan adapter which I cannot get to work with the TD after trying most fairly obvious options in the OSD menu and various comments in other threads of this forum. it may be that i need to install a linux driver for this device but cannot see how to do this , or for any other device, on the TD. Some pointers to how these things are done on a TD would be helpful.
