How to connect Android TV™ to a network using a wireless connection.

    IMPORTANT:

    • If you are using a wireless hub, router, or game adapter, you must select Wired Setup instead of Wireless Setup.
    • Using the network feature, you can connect your TV to the Internet. The setup procedure differs depending on the type of network and LAN router. Before setting up your Internet connection, be sure to set up a wireless LAN router.

    To connect to the Internet, devices such as hubs, routers, etc. are necessary in addition to the BRAVIA TV. Furthermore, these devices vary depending on how you connect to the Internet.
