Wireless Internet

Wireless Internet, also known as Wi-Fi, is the wireless transmission of Internet data between a router and a device.

Wireless Internet is common on Blu-ray players, AV receivers, many TVs, and Internet streaming devices like the Apple TV.

The most common implementation of wireless Internet is in a home, where a central wireless hub or router broadcasts a signal. This signal is picked up by a Wi-Fi device, which communicates with the router.

Currently, wireless transmission of HD signals is still in its early stages, so you'll still need HDMI cables for that. Not all wireless products are the same. Most wireless speakers, for example, use infra-red or a technology similar to cordless phones.
