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.
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: This is a complete scam by Sony, pure and simple. 1) Purposely not include wifi in your TV 2) Make the tv only work with sony's wifi adapter instead of a standard usb wifi adapter 3) Markup the price by 400% of a regular adapter and put a sony sticker on it. Add insult to injury, it doesnt even offer any good content. Instead of paying over $70 for this useless crap, get yourself an apple tv for $99, it will do everything this adapter does and much more.
Summary: A complete rip-off from Sony. You need this USB wi-fi adapter, and ONLY this USB wi-fi adapter, to connect your Sony BD player to your wireless network. So, my $100 BD player needs an $80 accessory to work as advertised. Very deceitful, Sony. The BD player is going back.
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.
