adding your BD-C6500 to network
I just bought the 6500, my Wireless router is a Dlink DIR-615. It takes a while to set up the PLayer with the network, you might get lucky, but what I tell you will hopefully speed things up.
since you don't have a router yet, the thing to keep in mind is you need to setup security, or your neighbours (teen agers with ipods laptops etc) will be able to connect to your wireless... so be sure to setup security ( eg WPA-2) you will see this on any wireless router.
anyways assuming you have the wireless setup... when you go through the setup process add the Player using the PIN you type this number into your router login page this is the fastest way to connect it... don't try with the encryption key.
Once you are connected you need to go to your PC and download the PC Share manager and install it.. it is a basic program that you use to add the folders that contain, Music, Images or video....note that if you have a large library it can take an hour for the program to index all the files... I recommend starting with folders that are not to large.
once the PC manager is done click on the menu named "server" and check off to have it start when windows starts.... just to make sure it is always ready.
now on the player when you try to select the media it will likely tell you you nothing is setup, but you have to press the RED A and select the "PC Share Manger" and once you do that you should be able to get everything.... I just haven't figured out the video yet.
just post back any questions oyu have and I should be able to help.
