Connecting the BRAVIA to a wireless (Wi-Fi) network.
What you need:
A Bravia Internet TV with in-built Wi-Fi or is Wi-Fi ready
A broadband internet connection (at least 2.5 Mbps is best)
A Sony Wi-Fi dongle
A wireless network router featuring WPS. We recommend one that supports streaming HD video.
Network connection and Set-up:
Depending on the BRAVIA model you are connecting to the home network, plug the Sony Wi-Fi dongle into the USB port, at the side of the TV. If using USB input two, use the 1.5m extension cable supplied with the dongle.
Turn on the TV, and using the TV remote, press the blue HOME key.
Navigate to Settings.
Pick Network from the list of options above.
Go to Network Set-Up and then Wireless Set-up.
Choose the third option, Scan to find the wireless router you want to connect with.
There are three options.
Many routers provide WPS, or Wi-Fi Protected Set-up. This is the easiest way to connect to a home network if supported. You can refer to your router manual on how to do this but its often as easy as pressing the WPS button on the router.
The second option refers to a semi-automatic process using WPS and a PIN; again, refer to the router manual to get the PIN number and steps required.
The third option, Scan allows you to search for networks, connect to your home network, and use a security key.
Using WPS (the first option)
Locate the WPS key on your router, once enabled; select WPS within the (BRAVIA) menu. After a few moments you should see a list of available wireless networks within range of the TV, including your wireless router. WPS makes configuring security features very easy, as passwords or keys are generated automatically every time new devices are added to the network.
If your wireless router is not shown, ensure it is on, and within range of the TV. (If using the wireless router for the first time, refer to its manual, as additional steps may be required to enable WPS, before it becomes visible).
Here, we’ve identified our router and selected it.
Next, we have a confirmation screen which will vary between router brands, so follow the steps shown onscreen, as appropriate.
You should now confirm a successful connection to the network & internet using the following steps:
Navigate to settings, network set-up, view network status, check connection.
The physical, local access and internet should read OK.
Please select an option after reviewing the solution above.
