Just picked up the Panasonic DMP-BD85 about 5 hours ago and yes, you can connect to a "g" network. Mine is connected to an older Netgear WGT624, g, WPA-PSK and works great.
I'll be honest, I'm a little disappointed with the Netflix interface. I'm comparing this to an Insignia NS-BRDVD3 that I also have and I like being able to browse through different "categories" or "tabs" as well as the Instant Queue where the Panasonic DMP-BD85 only lets you look at your Instant Queue.
For the money it's hard to beat the Insignia NS-BRDVD3 but I bought the Panasonic DMP-BD85 because I wanted to try the wireless option and see if picture quality was any better.
Is it worth ~$200 to have wireless?, probably not. I know I could buy a cheaper "access point alternative" for the Insignia NS-BRDVD3 and I may still do that.
Blu-Ray playback quality is really close with DVD upconverion going to the Panasonic DMP-BD85.
Sound quality over HDMI to my Home Theater is too close to call.
That's about it for now...
