yes you do not need a wifi network.

the media link HD sets up its own ad hoc network. call it "hotel mode" if you will... you dont want to pay for hotel wifi access so you bring along the media link. use its AD hoc connection and you are golden.

It has been an immensely frustrating exercise to try and get the device configured. In over 20 attempts, it has only connected once. The rest of the attempts resulted in not getting past the "configuring" screen or failures to even get to the "configuring" screen. The one time it did work, was fine, but since then, no success.

ive got one coming tomorrow ill check it out and post on here how I get on.

is there a firmware update available or anything? maybe you just have a dodgy firmware? from what ive seen most people seem to have good success though it's rumoured to need a good clean wifi signal from your router

IT WORKS!!

After 3 more restarts, including one hard reset (10 second button press), the device works and works flawlessly. It's been 15 hours now and it "just works".

I must say that it's a rather useful thing, especially if you have a large collection of favorite tunes stored on your phone and are a photoholic.
