Hey guys, thanks for reading. I tried reading up as much as I could about my question here on the forums before posting but I need help still so I appreciate it in advance.
My dad has a Sony BDP-S470 which does not have built in wireless capability, and he doesn't want a long cable running through the house so he's been using my PS3 to watch Netflix (that's all he uses it for).
I've been looking at Bridges/Gaming Adapters per some suggestions I've read on older threads on AVS, but unfortunately these devices are really hard to come by in 2014. I'm looking at an auction for the one that was recommended on eBay that ends in a few days if all else fails.
In the mean time, I have another idea that I need advice to know if it will work. I found my local computer store sells this nifty looking USB adapter by D-Link:
The front of my BDP-S470 has a USB port and the specs on that adapter seem to agree with the research I did on my router (it's a NetGear R6250)
TL;DR I've got
Will it give my blu ray player wireless network connectivity to watch Netflix?
If not, should I continue trying to buy a Linksys Cisco WGA600N Gaming Adapter or what do you suggest?
- SONY BDP-S470
- NETGEAR R6250 DUAL-BAND ROUTER
- D-LINK N600 WIRELESS DUAL-BAND USB ADAPTER
