      The LAN adapter works fine, after some difficulty with setup. Sony has no instructions for MACs online, and I didn't know about browser compatibility issues. Apparently, the Sony site requires Firefox, and Safari won't work properly.
      I got help from an online tech support person. He was very helpful. There was no way I would have aniticipated the few simple problems I ran into.
      Incidentally, don't use a router password that is too long. This creates problems with Netflix.

      This wireless adapter is intended specifically for Sony products. Previously, it was the only mechanism by which one could connect, say blue ray players, wirelessly. Recently sony's addition of internal wireless connections should have made these irrelevant and obsolete. As it turns out though, those internal systems are very restricted in terms of specific signal and are not particularly adept at acquiring or holding anything but a door-buster signal. This USB adapter, with stand and 6' cord provided the connectivity and performance that we expected with the internal. It connected without a problem, and took less than a minute to reconfigure the blueray to use it instead of the internal.

        Just plug it in to the back of your Sony Bravia, follow the instructions to set it up, and you're watching internet TV!It's compact size doesn't interfere with anything behind your tv.Much easier than hard wiring an ethernet cable to the router. Best price was from B&H Photo.

                The set up on the Sony UWA-BR 100 Wireless Lan Adapter is fast and easy.It connects quite well to my Sony all in one computer and was also easy to pair with my Sony S580 Blue Ray.All of this is of course wireless and the picture on the T.V. is excellent with no interruptions.The inexpensive price makes this wireless LAN quite an attractive buy especially compared to other brands offered out there. Make the purchase as it's a good one.

                            bottom line, you can pay less on purchasing a tv without Wi-fi and use one of these to update the firmware. I use this on 2 40" Sony's that are not Wi-Fi, don't need these tv's hooked to the home network. I simply plug this in monthly to check firmware updates.

                              The UWA-BR100 Wireless LAN Adapter by Sony is a must for anyone who wants to get the most of their Sony Blu-Ray player. After making Google searches I found what I needed and a resonable price right here at B&H Professional Source. Not only did I find what I needed, B&H found a solid customer for future needs

                                I bought this as a replacement. I moved and accidentally left my first one behind. It's very simple. I plugged it into the USB outlet on my Blu Ray player and it picks up the signal from our Qwest modem/router, which is around a wall.

                                Yes, I was not happy when I unpacked the blu ray player, to discover that I had to buy this extra thing for around $100.00 in order to get Netflix streaming.

                                I bought thinking of a connection to the Internet, but it locks me to some sony channels. Very limited use. No wonder so few people recomended me to buy it. Almost throuwing money in a dust bin.

                                      I used this with Sony KDL40EX729 to access Netflix. It is much more convenient without having to turn on my PS3 which can get a bit loud. Works like a charm! I started using my TV for Pandora as well. Definitely recommend this if hard wiring is not an option.
