Sorry if I upset you
Just want to clarify that you did not upset me. I am just glad that through this discussion the facts finally became clear as everyone was trying to find the correct answer. There is a lot of misleading information out there. I did a google search on the BD-E5300 and found numerous links such as: "Blu-ray Player with Built-In WiFi | Samsung BD-E5300www.samsung.com/us/video/blu-ray-dvd/BD-E5300/ZA" , "Samsung BD E5300 Blu-Ray Player, Wi-Fi Ready | Full Compass", and "Samsung BD-E5300 Blu-Ray Player Full HD Internet DVD Wi-Fi DivX 1080P HDTV".
As you correctly point out later in this thread, the best answer on the Samsung support site for the question of connecting to wifi with is player is a simple "No".
