Many of Panasonic’s televisions, Blu-ray players and home cinema systems now come ‘wireless ready’ so you can enjoy online content without having to run a network cable to the device. Whilst it is generally the slightly better option in terms of speed, the actual position of your equipment means that running a cable to it can be problematic at best. This is where additional wifi adapters such as the Panasonic DY-WL10 come in as they simply plug into the USB socket of your device and enable you to easily connect to your existing wireless network so you can enjoy internet content like the Viera Cast feature.
When you have inserted your Panasonic DY-WL10 Wireless LAN Adaptor it is then a relatively simple case of using the on screen menus to type in your wireless network details, so have your security key code handy before.
As wireless dongles go, the Panasonic DY-WL10 is a fairly attractive device with a large highly sensitive rear surface area to help ensure the wireless connection remains stable and reliable. The dongle itself is actually quite large with a width of 45mm a height of 30mm and an overall depth of 72mm meaning that it could protrude from most devices by about 50mm so you may need to factor that in.
What to consider before you buy the Panasonic DY-WL10 Wireless LAN Adaptor
For a relatively simple device it it quite an expensive option, but being the official Panasonic device you are at least assured that it is fully designed for the devices, and you will save any potential compatibility headaches.
Why you should buy the Panasonic DYWL10 Wifi Dongle
It is a well designed and made little device and if you need the wireless option then this is the only officially supported option – and that at least makes it worth paying a little bit more for. Rating: /5
