Overview: The Yamaha YWA-10 Wireless Network Adapter can be used to connect a 2012-up Yamaha network A/V receiver to your wireless home network. The YWA-10 connects to the Ethernet (RJ-45) port on the back of the Yamaha network A/V receiver and communicates directly with your wireless router. It's powered by the rear-panel DC Out/USB type-A port (5V/0.5A) of the receiver, so there is no need to take up an additional electrical outlet. The YWA-10 even has a second Ethernet (RJ-45) output that can be used to provide network access to another device such as a Smart TV or Blu-ray player.
Yamaha Receiver Compatibility: The Yamaha YWA-10 Wireless Network Adapter is compatible with 2012 Yamaha network A/V receivers that feature a rear-panel Ethernet (RJ-45) port and rear-panel DC Out/USB type-A port (5V/0.5A). Current compatible Yamaha A/V receivers include (as of 6/13/2013):
- RX-V Series: 475, 575, 675, 775 (already included with the RX-V775), 673, 773 (already included with the RX-V773)

Note: The Yamaha YWA-10 can also be used with other network components that feature a rear-panel Ethernet (RJ-45 port), but will require a USB-to-AC power adapter (sold separately).
WiFi Connectivity: The Yamaha YWA-10 Wireless Network Adapter is WiFi IEEE 802.11b/g/n compatible over a 2.4GHZ frequency and supports WPS (WiFi Protected Setup).
Dual LAN Ports: The Yamaha YWA-10 Wireless Network Adapter is equipped with two Ethernet (RJ-45) ports. One is used to connect your compatible 2012 Yamaha network A/V receiver, while the other can be connected to a second network source; such as a Smart TV or Blu-ray player.
USB Powered: The Yamaha YWA-10 Wireless Network Adapter is powered by the rear-panel USB type-A port (5V/0.5A) of your 2012-up Yamaha network A/V receiver; so no additional electrical outlet is needed. Power is supplied to the YWA-10 when the connected Yamaha receiver is powered "On". The YWA-10 can be powered even if the Receiver is powered 'Off", when the receiver is set to "Network Standby" mode.
Note: Do not connect the included USB power cable to a USB hub.
