    I read the reviews, and was not put off by the larger than normal number of negative comments about signal strength. I trusted in Sony (they have served me well in the past). Surely it could not be that bad, I thought. It is.

    I struggled for a few hours to get it working. I then took my new 40 inch Bravia into the room where the router is (I could not extend the router so had to move the TV). Bingo, it worked first time. 5 bar signal strength. My daughter re-watched the final of Strictly Come Dancing on BBC iplayer. I was impressed. (Not with strictly!).

    I then returned the Bravia to the adjacent sitting room, some 20 feet away. Zero bar signal strength. I could not believe such a dramatic change in such a short distance. So I repeated this again a further three times. All with the same result.

    I'm deeply disappointed that Sony has produced such a weak wireless adaptor. It seems, as others have said, there is a high risk this wireless adaptor will not work if it is in a different room to your router.

    All the other wireless devices in the house run fine off the router. My son's PS3 even works in his loft room.

    It seems from the reviews I have read, that you have a 50:50 chance of this working for you. You may be lucky. I was not. I shall be seeking a refund, and I've already ordered a 20m ethernet cable to run under the floor.

    Bought this to be used with a new Sony tv. Really easy to set up (just followed the guide that came with the tv).
    Now can watch Internet tv directly on the tv.
    Signal strength is good and the picture is great - much easier than watching on your laptop!
    Only downside is that it doesn't yet work (to my knowledge) with BBC iplayer, itv,4od or sky player - come on you guys stop making us watch on laptops!!!

    Verified Purchase
    We have a wireless network that works fine with four laptops, nintendo wii and various ipods BUT not with this expensive assessory. With laptops we are able to view the BBC Iplayer reliably. But with this it would only register 100% if we moved the router into the lounge. Even just outside the door the strength reduced to less than 50% which effected the iplayer buffering. I retuned it and got a full refund. Now I will have to hardwire an ethernet cable at some cost and inconvenience. Very, very dissapointed and expected better from Sony.

    I bought this adapter to work with the brand new Sony Bravia 32" TV I Wanted to use the wireless features of the set. My wireless Hub is the latest Netgear "N" ADSL 2 Wireless Router and is in the study approx 5 Metres away from the set in a seperate room. The adapter sees the network with a strong signal yet the set will often fail to connect. It HAS to be the adapter. I also have an LG390 Blu Ray with wireless and that works fine. It is up to you buy I would not buy this product again and would look at alternatives

    Forget this item and use Homeplug which uses the electrical wiring inside your walls. Plug one into a socket near your computer and the other into a socket near your TV and connect normal cat-5 ethernet cable to each and the other ends to your computers LAN slot and the other plug wired into the ethernet socket on the back of the TV. Instant connection without the need for trailing wires around your home. D-Link and Netgear ssem to have some of the best.

    I was intending to buy this Sony internet adaptor to receive iplayer on my Sony EX703 TV. However, after reading some poor reviews for the Sony adaptor (poor wireless connectivity with router; expensive) I read the tip suggesting that a Solwise solution involving Solwise 85Mbps Homeplug Adapter - Twin Pack was cheaper and better. Basically, it uses your ordinary electical system to transmit the signal. So I bought that instead and it really is excellent - very simple to use. You insert one plug into a standard 3 pin wall socket near your router and then connect this plug to your router with the cable supplied, then do the same with the other plug and your TV in any room in the house.Once I downloaded the Sony software update, which I would have had to do with the Sony adaptor too, it enabled me to receive iplayer without any problems. Highly recommended alternative that, for obvious reasons, Sony do not promote as an alternative.Solwise 85Mbps Homeplug Adapter - Twin Pack

    Have a look at the Netgear WNCE2001 Universal Network Adapter, does the same and available for £33.00
    Also it is not tied in to one manufacturer.

    It was with some trepidation that I opened this item, having read the "mixed" reviews. As stated in other reviews, build quality is as expected with Sony i.e. very good. The items comes with a solid USB adapter base and a 1.5m cable, giving some flexibility to it's position. Item plugged into USB port on Bravia TV and was up and running within seconds. I have my hub in the next room and get approx. 90-95% signal strength, so no worries there. Overall, quick and easy, the only gripe (as with others) is the price.

    Just as an aside, I did connect up using my homeplugs as well (router to TV LAN port) and although slightly improved performance, my wife wasn't too happy with the wires trailing across the living room...

    All in all, happy with this item, only loses 1 star because of the cost.
