Summary: This adapter is just great as long as... (1) there is no way to physically connect your TV (or whatever device) to your internet access (2) your wireless router can be located line of sight from the adapter (3) your wireless router can be located within 6 feet of the adapter (4) you are willing to power down every other wireless device in the house when using the adapter (5) even after all the above, you are still willing to put up with an intermittent connection We...
Summary: Sony needs to go back to the drawing board on this one. It was very unreliable...my router was only 75 feet away and yet this device had a hard time being consistent. Quit working completly after a couple of months. I bought an inexpensive Cisco ethernet switch and hooked it up to the TV, a Blue Ray player, and a WDLIVE media player. I than connected the switch to a Cisco Linksys WET610N as a bridge to my router. I haven't had a problem with this system what so ever.
Summary: If you are looking at this product to use with a Sony Internet TV that was purchased outside the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, or the Virgin Islands, don't bother. Sony's Internet TV's sold outside these countries do not have a registration code, cannot be registered to Sony My Essentials, and therefore do not even have access to SEE Netflix, if you were hoping to stream movies from the internet.
Summary: I bought this product to enhance my Sony Home Theater experience. Well it is a huge disappointment. Yeah it's easy to hook up to your existing system but it took about 1hour to finally get a signal from our wireless router. We have high speed internet which everyone says that is what you need. There our no walls and the router is approx:17ft. away. So after talking to Sony's tech.support. I guess we need to buy an Ethernet Net Cable.
Summary: I purchased the Sony USB adapter to be used on a new Sony Bravia Tv. The device pluged into television and after getting my router working which was not an issue with this device I started receiving internet at once. However my new TV does not have a audio out and I am using an old stereo receiver for sound I cannot use my stereo for the sound. So I purchase a Sony Blu Ray player and I stream internet to the player with the USB device.
Sony usb wi-fi adaptor..Works Great BUT Expensive!
22 November 2011
Summary: I think the sony usb wi-fi adaptor should be included with your player. To sell something that requires additional hardware and charge twice as much as any other adaptor is not right. Thats just getting GREEDY. So, instead of buying a sony camera for my wifes christmas present....I bought a Nikon instead. Make a little & loose alot.
Performs the job perfectly, but should not have had to buy it separately

Summary: I, like others, misunderstood the Blu-Ray player I purchased believing it to be WiFi ready. This dongle is very easy to install, and does the job perfectly and reliably. However, having to purchase the dongle in the first place is my point of argument. Be very careful of the Sony products you purchase and make triple sure that they have WiFi hardware inside the devices to avoid the mistakes myself and others have made.
Summary: Bought this on advice by SONY Technicians and found it would not work with my SONY BluRay (BDV-T11), there was No place to plug it in. SONY Tech. advised buying another additional adapter to allow connection to the ethernet 100 port. Just so happens that adapter is obsolete and no longer made. Luckily, I bought it at Amazon and was able to return it. (Minus All Shipping Charges). Looks like a Cheap Trick at dumping excess, obsolete, proprietory, stock off on a consumer.
Summary: The adaptor works great. Nice stand and long cord to find a spot with a reliable and good signal. Simple to connect to the USB port. If you can set up a wireless network you'll have no problem. It would be nice to be able to bring up a signal to noise meter on the Blu-ray player's menu to find a really sweet spot for reception. My system is on the opposite side of the house from my wi-fi router and in a "noisy" environment.
Summary: I recently purchased the Sony USB Wi-Fi Adapter for my Sony DVD player (to enable downloading of movies from the Netflix website). I had orginally spent $40.00 on a different adapter and then found that it wouldn't work with the Sony system. After reading many reviews I realized that I had NO CHOICE but to spent another $70.00 to make the Netflix work with the Sony products (we have the Bravia TV and the Sony DVD player).
