Re: How to setup a Wireless LAN-Ready Blu-ray Disc (BD) player to a high-speed Internet network.

This solution is designed for BD players that are wireless LAN-ready and do not have a built-in wireless LAN.

 

IMPORTANT:

  • If you are using a wireless hub, router or game adapter, you must select Wired Setup instead of Wireless Setup or USB Wireless Setup. The Wireless Setup only is for use with Sony Wireless LAN-Ready BD player (with USB Wireless LAN Adapter UWA-BR100).
  1. Connect the UWA-BR100 USB Wireless LAN Adapterto the USB port on the BD player.
  2. Using the supplied remote, press the HOME button.
  3. Select Setup.
  4. Select Network Settings.
  5. Select View Network Status.
  6. Press the Selectbutton to confirm network status.
  7. Select Wireless Setup/USB Wireless Setup.
  8. Select Scan. Scan can be used to set up any type of wireless network. You will need to know your network SSID and security key or passwordfor secured networks. If using one of the following secure network types additional substeps will be required to enter name and password information.
    • A WPS (Push Button) W-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) makes network setup as easy as the touch of a button.
    • A WPS (PIN) Allows for WPS setup of your TV by providing a PINthat you will set in your wireless router.
    • Secured Network without Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)

NOTE: For setting up a wireless LAN, SSID (wireless network name) and security key (WEP or WPA key) will be required. If you do not know them, consult the instruction manual of your router or contact you Internet Service Provider (ISP).

Follow the steps to manually set the IP Address and Proxy Settings:

NOTE: Enter the respective alphanumeric values for your router if necessary. The items that need to be set (e.g. IP Address, Subnet Mask, DHCP) may differ depending on the Internet service provider or router. For details, refer to the instruction manuals provided by your Internet service provider, or those supplied with the router.

  1. Select Autoto set the IP Address and proxy server automatically or “Custom” to set them manually.

    NOTE: When choosing the manual option, you will need to obtain the IP address using a computer.

  2. Follow the instructions that appear on the setup screen.

    NOTE: If you use WPS for network setup, the security settings of the wireless LAN router activate, and any equipment previously connected to the wireless LAN in a non-secure status will be disconnected from the network. In this case, activate the security settings of the disconnected equipment and then reconnect. Or, you can deactivate the security settings of the wireless LAN router, and then connect the equipment to the BD player in a non-secure status.
