PSR-S970: Wifi Wireless USB Adaptor AND Wired Queston

Post by rshome123 » 21 Oct 2015, 19:00

Hello, this is my first post to this great looking forum.

I have very recently purchased a Yamaha PSR-S970 Workstation keyboard.

I want to connect it wirelessly to my router using a USB adaptor. I am aware that Yamaha supply one, but the cost is very high... over £50.

I am hoping there is generic cheaper brand I can use. I've tried a Netgear one today, which didn't work (I followed the yamaha documentation exactly).

Can anyone help me source one ?

Also, if I want to connect the S970 to my PC, what cable will I need ?


I've spent a reasonable amount of time searching the forum, but didn't spot anything that answers my questions,

Kind Regards.

MR CK.

You need the UD WL 01 Dongle and as far as I know you can only get it from Yamaha Dealers. To link up your keyboard with your computer you need a Printer type cable.

Hi Mr. CK

I cannot help with identifying a Wireless Dongle however I would ask the question ----- have you really considered WHY you need one. Do you appreciate what limited extra's you will get if you buy one.

The dongle will allow you to load voices from YEM onto your keyboard and use various Apps from Yamaha on your IPad.

I have considered using a cable to connect to my PC, which would obviously be cheaper, but then I would presumably not have the ability to connect from iphone/ipad.

Would very much like to find a cheaper USB wireless adaptor, e.g. £15 or so.

Sorry but £55 seems to be the price you will pay for a wireless Lan Adapter.

You can use the IPAD Camera adaptor which will give you much more reliable data transfer. It costs about £25.
