              Answer

              The Yamaha RX-V481 receiver comes complete with both RJ45 Ethernet cable connection and a fully functional WiFi connection with attached antenna. Network connection can be established manually or automatically (WPS button) and supports WPA2 security. The most convenient configuration process is with a TV attached by HDMI for viewing but you can also do it by viewing the front receiver display. The RX-V481 supports several music playback options including streaming from your laptop. If you have a network connected Windows laptop, open Windows Media Player and select Yamaha RX-V481 in the "Play To" list. This sets up Windows Media as a music server. Check your version of Media player to find where this setting is. Once connected, just keep Windows Media open and you will be able to select/play your laptop's music through the RX-V481 receiver while viewing the album/song name and graphics on your HDMI connected TV.
