Method 2. Setting up a network connection by selecting an access point

You can set up a Wi-Fi (wireless LAN) network connection by searching for an access point.


  • This connection method requires information such as the network name (SSID) (*1) of the wireless LAN router/access point and the security key (password) (*2) for the network.

*1 SSID (Service Set Identifier) is a name that identifies a particular access point.

*2 This information should be available from a label on your wireless LAN router/access point, from the operating manual, from the person who set up your wireless network, or from the information provided by your Internet service provider.

  1. Select [Settings] - [Network Settings] - [Internet Settings].
  2. Select [Wireless Setup].
  3. Select [Select access point].
    The HDD AUDIO PLAYER starts searching for available access points.
  4. When the list of available network names (SSID) is displayed, select the access point you want to connect to.

    An input space for a security key (WEP/WPA) appears on the screen.

    If you have selected an access point with no security key, proceed to step 8.

  5. When the input space for the security key (WEP/WPA) is surrounded by a white box, press ENTER.
    An editing display and keyboard appear.
  6. Enter the security key (WEP/WPA).

    For details on how to use the keyboard, see “How to input characters.”

  7. When you have finished entering the security key, select [Next].
  8. When the setup is completed, select [OK].


  • You can enter 5, 13 or 26 alphanumeric characters and/or symbols for a WEP key or 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters and/or symbols for a WPA key.


  • If you cannot find the network name (SSID) you want to connect to in step 4, add a new access point.
