  54. cmediya says:

    I'm trying to hook up some Netflix on my Sony Blu-ray and was able to connect to the internet. However, I didn't see any Internet icon or apps so I cannot download Netflix. My model number is RMT-B104A.

  55. Lissa Bruce says:

    might be a good idea to maybe add an annotation at the beginning (if possible and not too much trouble for you) of this video saying "please check your Blu Ray player model number to ensure it has Wi Fi/Wireless capability". I consider myself tech savvy, and have set wireless connections up for a few other TV's recently but luckily they were all wi-fi capable; I didn't even think to check that this latest Blu Ray Player had that ability until I saw this video blush I just assumed all newer players had it. Thanks for video too, very well done for the most novice of users. 🙂

  56. Dillian Adams says:

    it doesn't give me the option for wireless setup just usb wireless setup what can i do

  57. iamconniec says:

    I hooked my Sony blu ray player to a hotel tv to connect to the free wifi at the hotel. The set up to wireless does not give me the option to enter the password for the hotel internet. The set up says that it is connected to the internet but when i try Netflix it says it is not connected. How do i get to the enter password page on the set up process? It works at home, but not at the hotel. 🙁

  67. John Reiniers says:

    I have a BDP-S590/BX59. Completed the wireless internet settings successfully. (the screen that says "Wireless connection: OK . . . Internet Access: OK") I then click on 'OK'. But instead of being able to enter an URL (by pressing the option button on the remote, I'm takine to an 'End User License Agreement' screen. When I click on 'Agree and next', it then tries to connect to the internet but this time I get a screen that says 'A network error has occurred. Do you want to set the internet settings?" This is after I've already been told that I have connected to the internet successfully. If I press 'Yes' than I'm just repeating the WPA key code I already entered and repeating the entire process again. If I press 'No' then the entire process ends. Please advise – John R

  69. Rodds Riggin says:

    I have a Sony BDP-S6500 and I successfully connected it to my Tv with HDMI and to my WIFI home internet. However it stops and starts when I try to view Netflix or Youtube. My computer in the same room plays both Netflix and Youtube fine. My Speedtest results are Ping 10ms Download Speed 48.78 Mbps and upload speed 6.50 Mbps. What can I do to Play Netflix and Youtube without skipping?

  70. Rodds Riggin says:

    10 ms ping, 59.27 Mbps download, 6.76 Mbps upload. Same problem on Netflix and Youtube..

  71. Christina Trombetta says:

    I have a BDP-S390 Blu-ray with a wireless LAN built-in and a working wireless network at home. My blu-ray used to connect fine to our network. It stopped working about a month ago after I cancelled my Netflix subscription. Every time I follow the steps for the "wireless setup(built-in), I get an error message that says the following: "USB Wireless LAN Adaptor cannot be found. Please insert a compatible wireless device into the unit's USB port and try again. If a wireless device is already inserted, please check the device." I don't understand what I'm supposed to be plugging in. It's a wireless network and the blu-ray has a wireless LAN. For reference, I have already attempted restoring the factory settings on the blu-ray, unplugging the blu-ray for a minute and plugging it back it, and unplugging my wireless router to restart it. Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated!

  72. MusicMaing says:

    Does anyone know why I can't stream YouTube to the Bluray player from my laptop? I can stream YouTube from my iPhone and iPad just fine. I can also stream movies from my computer's hard drive using a shared folder, so the Bluray player knows my laptop is there. When I'm using my laptop, there's no icon to allow me to broadcast YouTube video to the Bluray player. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks!

  73. Flea says:

    Hi, my blu ray has worked fine for a long time and all of sudden has dropped off and says that my wireless connection is not working. It is working fine with other devices. I have tried the other trouble shooting tips on sony's site (unplugged modem for 2 min) but nothing is working. The option to scan not even an option.
    The message it is giving "USB Wireless Lan cannot be detected"
    Nothing has changed and I have not moved anything or switched wires in literally years.
    Please help!

  74. Paranormal Girl says:

    No no no, I have done everything you mention and I have wired as a connection method. I don't even have an option to change it to wireless. I only got this at Christmas and am not very happy at not being able to view any of the apps. This is the latest 2015 model. I have even tried the dongle that came with my smart TV which I got during the summer and it says the dongle is not supported. Very angry now.

  75. john lindsey says:

    amusing that it is so simpe yet doesnt work. my new x1 will NOT let it connect.

  76. Destry McNellis says:

    I do not have the wireless option available

  77. pursang833 says:

    I should have bought a Panasonic. My old Panasonic Blu-Ray player I just plugged it in and I could access Netflix. I've had this Sony for 3 months and still haven't been able to get it to work. Too bad I listened to the Best Buy salesperson as he talked me out of the Panasonic and into this BDP-S6500 that is horrible.

    Almost as bad as being overly complicated and not being able to access Netflix is the fact that the remote has a very small range for it work.

    Sony used to be the best but it appears that they've been passed by a lot of their competitors.

  78. Joel Collins says:

    I just got the blue ray dvd wireless player #BDP-1500 it only say for wired. How do I sent it to wireless mode

  79. Helmy Hussaini says:

    BDP-S1100 cannot setup internet/ wifi. can help me??

  80. SkittyGirl300 says:

    I have the same thing but the only difference is that my device doesn't have the wireless option so I have no choice but to connect it to the internet with the ethernet cable.

  81. Rheanon Jasmyne says:

    OK, I have the BDP-S580 player, well I had bought it for my brother when his went kaput, then mine went kaput and he graciously gave me his to use since he really wasn't using it. We no longer have cable as we now have the Amazon Firestik, but I still like to watch my DVD's and BluRay's since most of them have working subtitles. A lot of times subtitles don't work well with Firestik. Anyway I have a bluray that will only work when connected to the internet which we DO have, so I thought I might try this out. Now I looked through the online manual since I don't know what my dear brother did with the manual. I have my player connected to a Westinghouse tv, But our router is in the other room so not sure if this will work, but will try.

  82. Rheanon Jasmyne says:

    I have another question. I haven't tried anything yet, but all I wanted to basically do was watch my " Prometheus " blu-ray so after I do everything and get connected do I just put the blu ray in as normal and watch it ? Sorry for being a noob………….:(
