Notes on Wi-Fi connections
Local regulations may restrict the use of Wi-Fi devices in some countries or regions.
Wi-Fi devices work on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. Various devices use these bands. Wi-Fi devices use technology to minimize radio interference from other devices on the same band. However, radio interference may cause the following effects.
- Slower data transfer rates
- Smaller communication range
- Communication failure
If you enable both the Wi-Fi function and the Bluetooth function on the player, slower data transfer rates or other problems may occur.
To perform Wi-Fi communications outdoors, you may need to contract with a Wi-Fi service provider.
The data transfer rate and communication range may vary depending on the following conditions.
- Distance between devices
- Obstructions between devices
- Device configuration
- Signal conditions
- Surrounding environment (wall material, etc.)
- Software in use
Communications may cut off depending on signal conditions.
The data transfer rate is the theoretical maximum. It does not indicate the actual data transfer rate.
Wi-Fi devices work on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands. These frequency bands cannot communicate with each other.
If the data transfer rate is slow, you may be able to increase the rate by changing the wireless channel on the access point.
The Wi-Fi antenna is built into the player. If you cover the antenna with your hands or other objects, the Wi-Fi connection may deteriorate.
