    I've just purchased a new Blu-ray player. It looks great, however, I thougt when they said it has network capabilities, that it would use wifi. It only allows wired connection, which is no use for me. It seems i can probably get some converter? Which is best?

    How can I convert wired Blu-ray device to wireless?

    Yes you can, you would have to get a wireless router, connect it to the ethernet port and then bridge that to your network.

    Cool, my router is in the same room and is wireless. So i can basically buy two plugs, plug one in to my wireless router, plug the other in to my blu-ray- player.. and bang.. it'll work?

    If your router is in the same room as the blu ray player then just connect it with a cable.

    Q for tech2: did the above purchase resolve your issue? I am in the same predicament.

    They haven't logged in since April so you won't get a response from them. But a similar (and newer device) will solve your problem.
