Can I use any wireless USB Lan adapter for my Bravia TV, or does it have to be this one?

Sony TV will only work with a Sony LAN. But when you plug this in the rest of your wireless item most of the time. Problem it will block other items in the house that are wireless. I would use a cable. Cost is $5.00 and Sony LAN is $80.00

If I know Sony, it's propriatery and you MUST use their devices in tandem.

If you have built-in Wifi, you good, but if not, you might need this wireless receiver.

Good luck!

No. Sony requires you to purchase their UWA-BR100 at $79.00 to connect your Bravia TV. I have a Bravia TV and it is worth the money to have internet access.

The Long answer..., You can taer your hair out by trying other adapters, or just save your scalp by shelling out the bucks for the Sony Exclusive One. Just so ya know, Toshiba does the same thing. Which is why I will never buy a Ipod. BUT Sony makes a great HDTV, whaddya gonna do???

Mike, I already took the plunge, buying another brand adapter. My Bravia didn't like it (recognize), said it wasn't compatible. So I ended up purchasing the UWA-BR100. Haven't gotten it yet so I can't say it works well yet or not. Hope this helps.

Unlikely, and the new devices use wireless N speed. You may have to change out your old b/g router, as I did, with the new D-Link DIR-628.

The adapter lets you grab Wifi signals, but you need new N speed for the latest devices.

At $60 I LOVE the DIR-628 for use with all of our wireless home gadgets! :)

You will have to use the Sony Adapter. I tried another wireless adapter made for my Mitsubishi TV using a Vizio Router and got the same error. Bought the recommended Wireless adapter for my Sony and still using the Vizio Router and everything works just fine!

The UWABR100 is not compatible with the BDPS360. It is compatible with the newer BluRay players: BDPS270 and BDPS370. For the BDPS360 you will either need to hardwire your unit to your network or use a wireless network bridge or gaming adapter set up to communicate with your network.

Yes, a wireless USB router receiver will help you get internet on your Sony blu-ray. You need either a wireless modem or router for the adaptor to receive a signal. If you still have the directions to your blu-ray player, there are easy set up instructions in there. It'll show you that you can either use an adaptor for wireless connections or hook it up to your router for a wired connection.

No, they don't have browsers built in, just a bundle of widgets and mini apps.

You still have to use your PC to surf the web, but most new TVs can be used as LARGE monitors, if your PC and graphics card can handle it.

I have a Sony BDP-S570 player connected to my Bravia 52" TV. The player is already internet connected and I can access NetFlix, HULU, Pandora,etc.

Does adding this device add any additional features to what I already have access to, or is it redundant to the connection already incorporated into the BD Player?

I'd say you're already hooked up like me with my BDP-S570 and Vizio xvt553sv.

You don't need this wireless receiver, as you already have "built-in" wifi.

This gadget was designed for use with the BDP-S370, which doesn't have "built-in" Wifi.

Nice set-up, BTW! ;)

Honestly, it subtracts $80.00 from your pocket.....
BUT, if you have the "UPDATED" model (Meaning it DOES indeed connect to the'Net), you do NOT need the adapter. Bought mine as a system, and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!

You can probably use a blu-ray player with a non-HD tv, but you can't get the full use out of the player that way. You also probably can't input the HDMI cable and would need that red, yellow, and white cable to connect the player to the tv. So an adaptor would do nothing for you, have to have an HD tv.

If you have a compatible Sony Blu-ray player you can connect the UWA-BR100 USB Wireless LAN Adapter to it and it will work fine no matter what TV, either low res or high res, the Blu-ray player is connected to - the actual TV however needs to be compatible if you wish to connect the adapter directly to the TV.
