From SpinetiX Support Wiki
Wi-Fi is technology for radio wireless local area networking of devices. To connect to a Wi-Fi LAN, a device has to be equipped with a wireless network interface controller (WNIC), which uses an antenna to communicate via microwave radiation.
The HMP400W and third-party players using DSOS have a built-in WNIC and can connect to Wi-Fi networks. See how to set up the WiFi network details; alternatively, you can use the network configurator tool and a USB stick for that.
- WiFi adapters often come as USB sticks to be plugged into a USB port of a computer or device - these are not supported because they require proprietary drivers to be installed on the host and this is completely disabled on SpinetiX players for security reasons.
- For fixed installations with numerous units, you may also want to consider power-line networking, especially if there is excessive wireless traffic in the area already.
WiFi Ethernet adapters or Access Points can be used as a bridge between the WLAN and the wired Ethernet connection toward the SpinetiX player. They are also referred to as "Wireless media adapters" and are commonly used to connect games consoles, Blu-ray players and similar devices to wireless networks.
WiFi Access Points are usually connected to a wired network and allow different wireless clients to get access to that LAN. Many of them can be placed into "bridge mode", where they wirelessly connect to another AP and one or multiple clients can use the wired connection for access to that network. Check your access point's manual to see if it can be placed into Bridge Mode.
