While I can where this could be a wifi bridge that plugs into the ethernet, I can't find any site where it supports some USB WIFI stick.

Many the bridge is the solution today?

and other statements, a "wireless" adapter is needed. Mine is located too far from my router and would involve running cables through the attic. A major, MAJOR, PITA. As I mentioned above, when configuring the player for networking/streaming, the specific statement "wireless LAN hardware" is used in several articles.

I've sent a request to the Sony support site. Maybe they have and answer. Or maybe we here have a Sony mod.

I could not find that at the Sony site.

I do see some non-Sony sites state this but I think they are confused and thinking about the s370.

I have used bridges for this. The pair of WGPS606 bridges that I got for 25 each are still working. Today I might use a gaming bridge if I wanted to try 802.11n.

My WGPS606 and example AP CLIENT device are both "Wireless LAN Hardware."

My device doesn't support a wireless adapter. Wired only. Oh well.

My WGPS606 is "Wireless LAN Hardware" that I connect the Ethernet to and well, you know what happens next.

but my player will only do software/firmware updates over a LAN. No streaming anything. Any updates I need to do is via a burned CD which I have done.

So unless I buy another player I'm SOL.

Logitech Revue. Sure, it's only 720p output but it's been nice. 99 bucks well spent. I haven't fired up the Roku since.
