    Just a real quick simple question

    Does anyone know if its possible to use both the wifi and the wired connection at the same time?

    Reason:

    I live and work in China so my ATV2 is hooked up permanently to a pfsense (firewall/router) VPN connection, but my wifi is open.

    Because of this situation when I stream media from Hulu, Netflix, Apple - no problem. However, streaming it from my computer which is on a different network is a problem.

    I'd simply like to use both if at all possible! I know its not available out of box, but does anyone know anything about this?

    no.

    once you plug in the ethernet cable, wifi is disabled.

    Understand that - looking for more of an outside the box solution for this or if anyone else has run across a need for this kind of functionality.

    Thanks for your reply,
