I have a Yamaha RX-V575 AV receiver and purchased a Yamaha

Customer Question

I have a Yamaha RX-V575 AV receiver and purchased a Yamaha YWA-10 wireless network adapter with the goal of connecting to the internet using my iPhone personal hotspot at my cabin in Colorado where I do not have DSL. After connecting everything, the receiver does not show up in the device list on the Yamaha AV Controller app on my iPhone and I am not able to connect the receiver to the internet. How can I fix this problem?

The receiver is about 6 months old. The YWA setup procedure describes one process using WPS and another if WPS is not available. I tried both without success.

If i understand this correctly, the YWA should connect with the network created by the iPhone 'personal hotspot'. But that is not happening.

Hi yes you are correct, but with your system, the problem is the internal modem the wireless section is not working as it should. I have been working with these systems forever so I am sure of the problem. I even design my own boards for robotics applications;-)

I would replace the new Yamaha YWA-10 wireless network adapter as that is the most likely cause, just a defective one is all.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
