Connect your LCD TV to the internet

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

You can connect LCD TVs that are wireless LAN-ready or have built-in wireless LAN to your home wireless (Wi-Fi®) network and the internet.

Here is the difference between the two wireless LAN options:

  • Wireless LAN-ready:
    • Bring wireless internet access to your Wi-Fi ready BRAVIA™ HDTV with the UWA-BR100 wireless LAN adapter. This adapter plugs into your USB input on your TV, and with WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) functionality, it’s simple to get your TV connected to your home network no matter what type of Wi-Fi you are using.
  • Built-in wireless LAN:
    • The built-in wireless LAN device allows you to access the internet and your home network without having to connect a separate adapter. With this feature, you can easily connect to a wireless network and enjoy the benefits of networking in a cable-free environment.

Before you start

  • Set up your modem and router and make sure your network is connected to the internet. Refer to your modem and router manual or manufacturer for configuration details.
  • If required, connect the UWA-BR100 wireless LAN adapter to the USB input on your TV. Most of the newer TV models have the built-in wireless LAN, so they would not require this adapter.
