Can you please tell me specifically which model you have, it looks like you were reading off the manual, but each is different so I need the specific model off the player itself.

Electronics Technician: Nathan, Engineer replied 11 months ago

Thank you for confirming,

you are unable to install as wireless because that option simply is not available in the first place. This particular model supports wired connectivity only, it does not have an internal wifi adapter and thus it is not possible to use it on anything other than a wired connection.

If you can't use it on a wired connection due to its location, you can still use the wired ethernet port in conjunction with an external network device such as a powerline ethernet adapter: http://amzn.to/28SDK86 or or wifi bridge: http://amzn.to/28PrUHk

Best regards, ***** ***** for the news,

Nathan
