    Hello Everyone,

    My dad recently bought a "Wi-fi ready" Sony Blu-Ray Disc/ DVD Player (Mode Number: BDp-S280) and little did we know it really is NOT wi-fi ready. it does not include anything stating what is compatible and if it is proprietary or not. please help? i have searched cisco and sony coorporate sites and have found nothing ''compatible'' with this model. any help would be greatly appreciated.
    :confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:
    :confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:
    All cisco adapters have stated minimum requirements including Windows O.s., ?:confused::confused:
    and on the ONLY sony adapter i see nothing listed under compatible devices for my device.:confused::confused:

    Have you plugged the USB in the PC and does the PC see the device?

    This device will not give you wi-fi but will work on wi-fi

    "Wifi ready" means it will work with a supported wireless networking adapter. The only supported adapter is from Sony.
