Welcome to Agoraquest!  What do you have the Ethernet connector connected to?  I have the Ethernet connector on my XBR8 connected to a router and it works fine.  Have you tried the diagnostics?

It´s important to know where you live: USA/CND, Europe, Asia.

Sets with the same model number do have very different interiors due to the region they are intended for.

Hello Community,

Updating on a Sony Bravia LCD TV is essential to clearing up ongoing problems, enhancing current functionality and ensuring your Sony Bravia LCD TV maintains its top condition. For Sony Bravia LCD TVs, firmware upgrades correct a video auto-dimmer problem, improve menu navigation and repair several audio-related problems. There are some instructions for updating Sony Bravia.

1. Visit Sony's website to update your Sony Bravia firmware. Click on the Support section and find the Drivers/Software area.
2. Select your TV model number. Locate the "Firmware" update. Download the file to your computer.
3. Browse to the directory where you downloaded the firmware update and double-click it. Unzip the file using the WinZip Self-Extractor.
4. Connect the USB storage drive to your computer, browse to the folder where the extracted firmware files are located and copy the files to the USB storage drive. Remove the USB storage device from your computer.
5. Turn off your Sony Bravia and insert the USB storage device into the "SERVICE" port located in the back of your TV. The "SERVICE" port is a standard USB input located in the rear of the TV in the bottom right corner. Consult your Sony Bravia user manual if you have problems locating the "SERVICE" port.
6. Turn on your Sony Bravia and wait for a message to appear on the screen notifying you that the update will take three minutes to complete. If the firmware you are attempting to use is incompatible with your Sony Bravia, you will receive a message to verify and download the correct firmware for your current model number. As long as the firmware is correct, you will receive a new confirmation message every minute that passes until the firmware upgrade is complete.
7. Remove the USB storage device once the firmware upgrade is complete.

Best Regards,
John Hassen

Plz give the model no. and your location because it varies from country to country and region to region.
