How to set up Internet on Sony Xperia
After purchasing a new Sony Xperia smartphone, the user wants to get the most out of it: constantly communicate with friends on social networks, browse favorite sites, share photos and much more. Fortunately, modern mobile operators provide tariffs with free mobile Internet for a nominal fee. Personally, when I bought a Sony Xperia Z2, the first thing I did was change the tariff plan to a new one, with free Internet access without limiting daily traffic. And in truth, going out into the street, without the Internet, the smartphone turns into a simple “dialer”, and the number of open Wi-Fi access points in my city is not large. However, many users may be faced with the question of how to set up the Internet on Sony Xperia and I will try to answer this quivering question.
Of course, there is no single “panacea” here, since everything is tied precisely to your mobile operator, which actually provides you with the service of access to the Internet and its access point must be registered.
On a good account, immediately when you turn on the smartphone for the first time, automatic settings should come to your number, after which access to the Internet service will be active. If this did not happen, then you can go to “Settings Internet settings” and select your operator in the window.
You can also use manual input of all the necessary settings if the automatic ones do not come to you or do not want to work. To do this, first of all, go to your operator’s website and find everything there for manually setting up the Internet (below is a screenshot with this data using the example of the Ukrainian mobile operator MTS, you need to go to your operator’s website!):
After that, go to the Sony Xperia smartphone in “Settings APN Access Points”, then click on the plus sign in the upper right corner to add an access point, enter all the data that you found on the site and save the settings.
After that, select the added access point and turn on the mobile data transfer.
Setting up your Sony Xperia as a USB tethering or wireless hotspot
This instruction will be very useful for beginners who have just managed to get acquainted with Sony Xperia devices and those who have not fully figured out all the capabilities of the gadget. There are times when you may need the Internet on another gadget at hand, such as a computer, laptop or tablet. Having an active Internet connection on your smartphone, you can easily distribute the Internet from it and we will tell you how to quickly set up and use Sony Xperia as a Bluetooth modem, USB modem and wireless access point. Before that, make sure that your smartphone is configured for mobile Internet or 3G
Using your Xperia as a Wi-Fi hotspot
Go to “Settings Tethering and hotspot mode” (remember this path).
Next, you need to put a tick in front of the “Wi-Fi access point” item, after which you will be informed about the termination of current downloads, updates, etc here we press “OK”.
A corresponding inscription with an icon will appear in the notification panel, and the name of the access point and information about activity will be displayed in the item itself.
To configure additional parameters of the wireless access point, go to the corresponding item. Here you need to put a tick in front of the “Visible” item and find out the password that you need to enter on another device to connect. It must be taken from the menu item “Configure Wi-Fi access point”. If the password is hidden and displayed in the form of dots, then simply put a check mark “Show password”. Now Ixperia can connect to your Sony wirelessly without any problems.
Using your Xperia as a Bluetooth hotspot
You can also distribute the Internet via Bluetooth. To do this, all in the same menu “Modem mode and access points” tick the “Modem Bluetooth mode” and unforgettable in the Bluetooth settings, activate its visibility for other devices.
On the connected device, after selecting your Sony Xperia, you need to click on the settings for this connection and check the “Internet access” checkbox. Also check its availability on your smartphone. This completes the setup.!

Despite the simplicity of this setting, some users may still have problems. To get started, connect your Sony Xperia smartphone or tablet to the PC using a USB cable, after which in the “Modem and access point mode” menu, the line “USB modem mode” will become active next to which you need to put a checkmark.
Further, all actions take place automatically. the corresponding drivers must be independently installed on the computer and the Internet connection will work. This happens if a modern operating system Window 7 or 8 is installed on the computer. The problem may arise precisely because the PC zealously refuses to install these same drivers, although such cases are rare.
Updating Sony Bravia TVs
A modern TV is not just a box in which programs are broadcast. Today it is a full-fledged multimedia device that needs proper care. In particular, it is sometimes necessary to update the firmware of your Sony Bravia TV. If you do this on time, you can continue to watch your favorite movies online and use the Internet without using any other additional devices.
But Sony TV is incredible. The new line, called BRAVIA, was also based on the beloved Android, the possibilities of which are amazing.
What to do after reboot so that Sony Bravia works properly?
Android, surprisingly, looks great on TV. Although it is not a fact that its presence at first will not seem somehow strange. But after all the systems are configured, the work will go like clockwork. But before proceeding to further work, you need to make the initial settings. They also need to be repeated after flashing the system, therefore it is better to immediately remember the algorithm of actions.
First, it is imperative to install the language in which the person will be comfortable using the software;
Set up a Wi-Fi connection in order to actively use the Internet for further work, since after a reboot, as a rule, this data disappears, and the Internet will help to restore it;
After setting up the Internet, you must activate your Google account in order to enjoy the benefits offered by the Internet;
By the way, if the channel settings were linked to your account, you can restore them as soon as the connection with Google is set up. It is advisable to set the same passwords on different devices and use the same service. It will be much more convenient this way. The registration code for the TV should come to the phone or laptop, and as soon as you enter it, the connection will be established.
Is it worth updating the software on a new device?
If the device came out a couple of years ago, there is reason to believe that more modern and practical firmware has already appeared. In this case, it is not recommended to leave it intact, as further troubles may arise. When you turn it on for the first time, you are immediately prompted to update the system. If you are not sure that you can perform such an action, then it is better to skip this step, and, if necessary, do it after you get used to it a little, or using the help of a person who understands a similar matter better.
If you decide that the system needs updating, then this moment will take about an hour, maybe a little longer. Much depends on the speed of the internet provider and the amount of free traffic. If the Internet is already set up, then it is better to go to the official website of the company and watch the latest software that will fit your TV.
In order to see, you need to know the exact name of the device model, and drive its name into the appropriate line. Otherwise, it is not easy to figure out the number of updates, because they are not sharpened for all models, but are suitable only for certain series. By the way, on the official Sony resource there is not only the opportunity to download the software, but also detailed instructions for stopping. Everything is done for the convenience of customers.
Android 6.0 update
This update is one of the newest, and is suitable for Sony TVs that were released no later than 2015 and 2016. Here is a list of models for which the update is “sharpened”:
Sony X94C, X93C, X91C, X90C, S85C, S80C, X85C, X83C, X81C, X80C, W95C, W87C, W85C, W80C, W75C;
Sony X94D (XD94), X93D (XD93), X85D (XD85), S85D (SD85), W9xxD, W8xxD.
Now users will not have to suffer with a thousand system errors that slowed down the TV, preventing them from using the Internet normally and comfortably, watching their favorite programs on TV, etc. And thanks to the update, even Smart TVs are improved, since the package includes several useful functions.
Android TV 6.0 Marshmallow, according to Google’s assessment, is the best solution for:
Improving device performance;
Improving the speed of systems on the TV.
In addition to all of the above, the Android TV 6.0 update will delight the user with a lot of interesting features that will be available after the Sony TV is updated. In particular:
Now you can more comfortably work with an external storage device using USB for this;
On devices that have installed the update in question, the new concept design pleases;
For a home where minor family members live who cannot live without a TV, the software allows you to use the “child mode”;
Also included is an excellent audio control.
All in all, the software turned out to be worthwhile. But you should use this flashing carefully, downloading it only from the official website, and carefully checking whether it fits the TV model, otherwise the system will freeze and work poorly.
How to update the software on a Sony Bravia TV
Modern technology is so cool that you don’t need to be a programmer, system manager or any other professional to update the system on your TV. Everything is already there. As soon as new software comes out, a message immediately appears that obsessively recommends switching to a more modern version.
But what’s new doesn’t mean it’s better. Many users on the net say that the latest firmware from Sony is far from perfect, and not suitable for all TVs. What, then, to do? Before updating the system, you should search the forums for stories of people with the same TV model. If their system works well, then you can install it for yourself.
How do you install it? It is very simple. the device will do almost all the procedures on its own, the person only has to click the remote control in time.
The instructions must be followed. This can lead to the fact that the TV stops responding to manipulations, or even breaks down. Sony has a very sensitive configuration, so the update instructions must be followed exactly;
Do not disconnect the device from the network during the update.
How is Sony Bravia TV updated? Here is the sequence of actions:
You need to go to the “Settings” menu and see what version of the software is installed. If it needs updating, the device will indicate it;
If the system does not need updating, but the owner wants to change it on his own initiative, then you can go through the browser to the official website and download the software yourself;
When the file is downloaded, you need to open it and start the flashing procedure;
In its course, the TV will turn itself off and on, indicating that the system is updated;
