    I am trying to access Netflix from my motel room. Most motel wireless networks require you to pull up your web browser after you connect to agree with their service agreement. How do you achieve this with the WD TV Live Plus? Thank you!

    I doubt you can..

    but, try it with a laptop, once the TOS are agreed to, you can try a cable from the laptop to the WDTV and use internet connection sharing (assuming you are using windows)
    only way I can think of as the wdtv has no web browser or interface..

    You could also bridge your connections. So receive data from laptop at hotel via wireless. Connect ethernet cord from laptop to WD TV and you'll get internet connection on the WD TV.

    Most hotels networks base their authentication on your MAC address. When I travel I usually clone my WDTV MAC address on my laptop and log in to the hotel system, then pull the cat5 out and over to the WDTV and select 'automatic' in the network setup, it will pull an IP from the hotel's dhcp server and work like a champ. The only issue I've had is hotels that expire the authentication of the MAC address before I check out, if that happens, just repeat the process.
