Ask Computer Networking Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hello, I can help you with this. Do you know if your Sony TV has built in wireless? Or does it only has built in Ethernet port?
Also, can you please tell me what is the model of your Sony Bravia TV?
I'll get back to you when I get this information. At work . Will be this evening.
Not a problem. I will be online later tonight as well.
Sony Bravia model KDL-40XBR9. Operating manuel says to use a wireless bridge connected to a LAN input on the TV which will connect to the wireless router. What is and where can you purchase this bridge.
Great, thanks for that info. Basically, i wanted to research it a bit more and make sure that there are no known compatibility issues between that TV and the wireless bridge that I was going to recommend to you
Wireless bridge, is the device that enables Ethernet -enabled devices to connect to wireless network. Basically, you can think of it as a wireless adapter for TV (since most TVs can't use USB wireless adapters)
The absolutely easiest to set up and configure wireless bridge, would be Linksys Wireless-N Dual Band Wireless Bridge
you can find it here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/613830-REG/Linksys_WET610N_Wireless_N_Ethernet_Bridge_with.html
for about $70 plush shipping/handling/tax
or you can go down to your nearest Best Buy and purchase it for about $100. Either way, this device is pretty easy to configure, just follow the steps in the manual it came with. You may also need to refer to your TV's manual, during the set up process.
Let me know if you have any other questions
