I have never set my wifi on my T1. And I don't have any of the Sony reader on my computer, just Calibre. Not sure if that would affect the steps to doing this or not.
You don't need the Sony software, just Calibre... Go ahead! Try it! It's pretty easy if you follow the steps and you'll never use your usb cord again!

I bought the T2 just yesterday after having been a happy Kindle user for over a year. I was very uncertain about my choice but went for it on account of the language dictionaries and the evernote support.
With the ability to just reach into Calibre and retrieve ebooks this has just become so much easier and more convenient than the Kindle to use. I was certain that moving to Sony would just be a pain after having given up with trying to get Adobe and the reader software to recognise each other on the Mac. Being able to use Calibre in this way is absolutely incredible though. It is really stepping into the future.
Thanks! Don't hear THAT very often! I just love the Sony User Interface and being able to browse and then load books with Calibre without going to the computer is "la cerise sur le sundae"! Enjoy!

IT WORKED! I can't thank you enough Chantal, your explanation was clear, easy, concise, and it worked first try, thank you thank you thank you!!!

pomtroll, it really is just as her explanation says, follow it exactly and you will be connected too! It literally took me 2 minutes, my first wifi download was seamless.

I'm so thrilled, thank you again!

Cdesja5!! Absolutely bloody marvellous!!! You are truly a hero!! I registered just to tell you that!! I was considering chucking my 6 mth old Sony PRT 1 read in the rubbish in disgust! And purchasing some other brand. It no longer recognises my laptop (nor charges). I charge it through my flatmate's android charger (annoying but tolerable), although I despaired of ever being able to add new books.

Bloody awesome!! From an avid Aussie admirer!!

:-))))))))))))
