Connecting your Sony® Blu-ray Disc™ player to your Wi-Fi

Most of the Sony® Blu-ray Disc™ players are Wi-Fi capable.  However, if your Sony Blu-ray Disc player does not have the Wi-Fi functionality, you have to purchase an optional wireless adapter and insert it into the USB port of your Sony Blu-ray Disc player.  Alternatively, you can also connect your Sony Blu-ray Disc player to your Linksys router using an ethernet cable.  To learn more, click here.

Before connecting your device to the Wi-Fi, ensure that:
