How to connect an Internet video device to a network using a wireless bridge.

    NOTE: Not all Blu-ray Disc® players or TVs have Internet capabilities. To see if your video device has the functions discussed in this solution, check the specifications or supplied operations guide. Manuals are posted on your model support page.

    Follow the steps below to set connect a wireless bridge.

    1. Using a computer or mobile device, verify that the network connection is set up and active.

      NOTE: Contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for instructions on how to set up the network and activating the modem.

    2. Determine if your wireless connection is already set up and working with other devices on your network (computer or mobile device.)


      • If other devices do not work wirelessly, either refer to your ISP or router manufacturer for instructions on enabling and setting up wireless access or you will need two bridge devices as shown in the image below: one for the device and one for your router.

        Two Bridge devices

      • If your router already has wireless capability, then you only need one bridge device.

      NOTE: This step will vary depending on the brand and model of bridge device being used. Refer to the help guide or contact the manufacture of the bridge device for assistance.

      2. Select Settings.
