My understanding is that the BDP 370 can communicate on a wireless network to stream media such as netflix. I am under the impression that wireless adaptor must be connected though the usb port .. is this correct? If so can I use any wireless adapter? I have several that can be plugged into a usb port so that a loptop can be adapted for wireless.

My real question is what would be required to stream video content from the internet to my TV by using a BDP 370.

I also have a BDP 560 which I understand from numerous posts will never be able to connect to netflix and its wireless capability is mainly to allow for firmware upgrades and so on. Is this true?

Thanks for your patients.

"If so can I use any wireless adapter?"

There are some that claim non-Samsung USB WIFI dongles work. However such things are not supported and it looked like finding such is a gamble. HOWEVER I use a wifi bridge to connect via wifi to many ethernet devices. There are too many wifi bridges out there to list them all so I'll stop here.

As to streaming, if that model does it, then beyond what issues folk report all that is needed an internet connection. Either that wifi dongle, wifi bridge or ethernet cable.

The ethernet cable even at 50 foot is 7.99 at Fry's and could let you see what is available before you pop for the Samsung supported wifi adapter or look at bridges.

Sorry I meant Sony.

Anyhoo, HETFLIX is constantly making changes and you hear the screams from users when the netflix on this or that tv or player burps.

When it works it's ok. When it doesn't, no one hears you scream.
