Summary: The WiFi works fine, the remote control works fine.. The problem with this unit is their Interface. The Icons and letters sre so small you cannot see from 10 feet away. Spend the extra $$ and get the media player that starts with RO.. (wally world won't let us use brand names. I have 2 of those and they are by far Superior. Also, many people don't know that each Company offers different channels and this one offers weird stuff that you would never use.
Summary: I have a Roku player which I paid more for and does less. I was so happy to find this product. The only drawback to it is the user interface is, let's just say, less then polished. Having said that, I will deal with the quirks to get more than the middle of the line Roku offers (and somethings more than the top of the line) for less than the cheapest Roku. So what do you get over the Roku? 1. A hard wired Ethernet connection. Better then wireless for sure.
