I've updated the firmware on many players, including two Sony 6500s, via wi-fi without any problems. It is as easy as pressing about three or four remote-control buttons and exiting the room for a few minutes, then you're done. That's it!
I hope your new Sony brings you years of problem-free entertainment.
