Depending on which Clear modem you have, you can do it either way. The standard Clear modems don't have wi-fi connectivity, only the 4G WiMax connection for the Internet service, but there is one modem which also has the wi-fi built in. For best results either way, and connectivity with more than a single device at a time in the case of the wired modems, you should look into a router to go with it. See recommended products for the router I have, along with a Clear wired modem, the same Sony Blu-ray player with Google TV, and a Sony Bravia KDL46EX710 TV. The Blu-ray player can connect to the 5GHz side of the router, while most other devices use the 2.4GHz, making LAN connections much more efficient. In terms of connecting through Clear, that's up to your location and how/where you have your modem set up.

The remote controls the Sony device, your TV, and your DVR/Cable/Satellite box.

You will be able to put your Verizon remote control in storage, along with your Panasonic plasma TV (or any other TV) remote control. The all-in-one remote control that comes with this device will replace all of those remotes.

By the way, my living room TV that has this Sony device connected is also a 3-4 year old Panasonic plasma TV (42"). They work together wonderfully!

Unfortunately, not as of now. ESPN3.com just updated their site to Flash 11, but good news is that Google finally announced an update to bring current Flash to allow websites like ESPN3.com to work.

This Blu-ray player does not have a TV tuner. you would connect your cable to either a cable box, or your television directly. please consult your local cable provider to determine available channel programing.

Yes, just push the Menu button and select the "New Tab" or "New Incognito Tab" and that will launch a new tab for you. You can also hold the Home button down to view open activities which allows you to close or switch around those activities.

The only outputs are HDMI and USB.

You ought to be able to use an HDMI-to-<whatever> converter cable if you don't have an HDMI input on your TV or need/want to use some other input than HDMI for whatever reason.

For example, I have an HDMI-to-monitor cable for another use, which would seemingly work just fine if needed.

You don't run it through the blu ray player. Run it through the TV. the Sony system is made to surf the net & watch movies, etc. off of the net.
