    I have 2 blu ray players in my home. The one in the living room is hooked up wireless to my router, but the one in my sons room would need a LAN connection. Is it possible to hook up his player wirelessly without having to run 100 feet of LAN cable ? His player is a Sony BDP-S185, and my wireless router is a Netgear N 300 WNR2000. Any help is appreciated.

    Thank You

    I actually have the BDP-BX18 (which is Sam's Club's version, the only difference is with the Sam's model it comes with an HDMI cable in the box)... but I connect mine to a landline, so I wasn't sure what kind of WIFI adapter would work with it.

    What do you mean you connected a "landline"? I think you meant to say LAN (Local Area Network) cable; as landline refers to a POTs (Plain Old Telephone) line style service.

    At any rate, any of the above mentioned Wi-fi adapters will work to connect wirlessly. All they to is convert a Wifi Signal to a standard Ethernet jack for connection of Ethernet enabled devices which is exactly what you want.

    Now if you already have a "LAN" line connected from your router or switch/hub to your Blu-ray player, there would be no benefit (other than potential cosmetic cleanup of removing the existing LAN wire from the equation).

    yeah... I was just throwing in some "slang" from the "olden" days of landline vs cell phones... equating direct wired connection to the LAN with "landline"...
