    I'm trying to connect an AppleTV and getting no where

    The AppleTV has been updated via plugging it in to a mac mini and using itunes to update.

    It looks like it's going fine in apple configurator then I get "device not respsonding"

    You have to plug the Apple TV into a monitor via hdmi, navigate to settings and then plug it in to Apple Configurator. You can update it with Apple Configurator too..

    Saying this, the 802.1x profile still doesn't work for me even though it works fine on iPads!

    I found a (practically useless) solution to this. It's to do with the time/date on the apple tv once it loses power.
    If you keep the device powered (or even sleeping), and reconnect to the wired network to allow it to contact an external ntp server (apples i'm guessing), once its date/time is updated, wireless kicks back in.

    Pointless as i need to move it to another room without a wired point. whats so difficult about putting in a date/time adjust option in the menu ... grrrrrrrrr

    I was chatting with someone about this over the weekend and they are going to try using an Apple Airport Express as a bridge from wireless to wired for the Apple TV. It is only a temporary solution to check if it works in his setup, and if it does then he is going to stick in a few more network points to deal with it. It does seem a tad expensive if you were going to buy an Airport Express with every AppleTV, but he has a few spare to test with. In his situation (listed building) using the Airport Express is probably going to be cheaper than running points though.
