    My wi-fi network is working perfectly for my MacBook, iPhone, and iPad, but on Apple TV, when I go to Settings<General<Network, it lists other wi-fi networks but not my own. I've tried restarting it countless times. Does anyone have any idea what to do? Thanks.

    any chance you have your SSID hidden? (might also be called private or closed network depending on your router)

    No, it's not hidden. I've been able to connect to this network before, but suddenly I can't find it listed there on ATV2.

    Won't connect to wi-fi

    Set it manually. Get the router ip and dns address from your other computers network settings.

    Have seen the strange thing where if you let it set up automatically it uses the routers address as the DNS address resulting in it not being able to find the iTunes store
