    Hi, sorry if this has been answered before, I was wondering if there is alternative to the Oppo 105 wireless dongle out there to buy. I (obviously) can't find one to purchase. Any help would be appreciated.

    Email Oppo, I needed one and they sent me a link to a dongle sold on Amazon. Might be the same one Mike from NYC just sent you.

    Thanks for the tip. I went with the 1mii as it appears to have better SQ.

    Thank you for the information. I was hoping for something that would plug into the USB port

    You'll need to get one that is desihned for the Oppo. I tried generic and it didn't work

    That's good to know and great of Oppo. I imagine that Oppo firmware contains the drivers for a particular WiFi chipset, and anything of that chipset works. Maybe you could dig through your email and find the link Oppo sent?

    I know where the box for the dongle is. I'll dig it out tonight.

    Hey everybody, Oppo got back to me and here is their reply
    We no longer have the WiFi Adapters for the BDP-105. However, we have tested and confirmed this (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017N6KI8W/) to work with our BDP-10x players.
    Best Regards,

    I’m sorta kinda thread-jacking here but I couldn’t find a solid answer in the multitude of other mostly outdated Oppo threads so I figured this thread who’s title is close to my question and would be my best shot at getting an informed answer...

    Anyway, is there any USB WiFi stick/device that works with the Oppo 103/105 and 203/205 players that supports 5g? Oppo’s own little WiFi stick only supports 2g and it seems it’s only their WiFi stick that works for their players as far as I have read and experienced. A wired network connection is really not something I want to deal with going across several rooms, etc.

    A Roku stick works and gives me 5g speed (Netflix is far faster and more stable via the Roku stick plugged into the player then via the 103/105 Oppos’ own Netflix app) but I can’t use a Roku stick to access my own servers and network media files.

    I simply connect my Oppo 105D via short ethernet cable to a dual-band (2.4/5) Wifi extender such as this one:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006V72AHC/

    Since I have several ethernet capable devices in my system, the four ethernet ports on the extender come in handy to connect everything to my home network via wifi extender.

    Although that’s a bit more than a simple USB WiFi stick, that’s a viable alternative to possible running an ethernet cable through the wall and attic to the Oppo player. Is the Oppo running on your 5g network and not the 2g?

    It doesn't quite work the way you are asking your question. The Wifi extender runs on my 5g wifi network. All the Oppo cares about is that its ethernet cable is connected to a device that is connected to the internet. Whether the Wifi extender is connected to 5g or 2.4g doesn't matter to the Oppo via ethernet cable, as long as it sees the internet via that ethernet cable. Does that make sense?

    Yeah, that makes sense in that the Oppo doesn’t discriminate or is limited by bandwidth when it’s pulling data via an ethernet cable connection. The 2.4g issue appears to just be a limitation to Oppo’s own WiFi stick. It just weird that the only USB stick that appears to be able to work with the Oppo at 5g is the Roku stick.

    Another option is powerline internet adapter. It works just fine for my 103.
