Do you mean using wireless to BM5 instead of a cable?

I found a wireless USB dongle many years ago, but it is hard to find one today with drivers for WindowsXP today.

You have to start the BS5 service menu and enter windows xp and connect it to your network

Just use any wireless access point / repeater with an Ethernet / LAN port. set it up for your wireless network and connect it with a LAN cable to your Beomaster 5 and you're ready to go and you avoid messing around with the Beomaster 5 software.

An Example is the Airport Express or other small access points.

Thanks for your help here. I will go down the Wireless Dongle route. If that fails will try an Airport Express
