The Sony® HomeShare devices do not impose a restriction or limit to the amount of devices that can be used at the same time. However, connectivity may be limited based on the following:

  • Internet modems and routers have a limit to the number of wireless devices that can be connected to the Wi-Fi® network.
  • Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may have a limit on the bandwidth that can be used.
  • A drop in connection or signal loss may occur because the router can become overloaded with too much data and fail temporarily.

NOTES:

  • For additional model-specific information regarding any of the items discussed above, please contact your ISP or refer to the operations manual supplied with the modem or router.
  • Additional information is available regarding the connection of multiple HomeShare devices using the Party Stream feature .
