Hey there...

It's time for one of our Smart TVs to hit the digital age proper, but I've already hit a snag...

I'm on the prowl for a USB Wireless Dongle. Sony Model number UWABR-100. It's for a Bravia KDL-32W600A

Can anyone help?

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

I went for the official Sony device, saves fuss in the long run.

If you have a Sony BRAVIA HDTV without a built-in wireless adapter, you may have checked out the Sony wireless adapter UWA-BR100. This wireless adapter is too expensive but we are left with no other options if we want the wireless capability because BRAVIA does not recognize other wireless adapters.

How long ago did you buy one as according to sony it's and EOL discontinued product so maybe quite hard to find one and if you can find one you'll be looking at paying upwards of $100+ for it 

the only other option is the third party UWA-DR100 or use a an TP-Link wireless router in bridge mode connected to the LAN port on the TV

A couple of years ago, it was something like $120, and also picked up a Sony Skype camera because I knew that nothing lasts for ever.

 

You could try a NetGear Wifi network expander and use ethernet between the expander and TV.
