    Blu-ray player - wireless adapter?

    I'm looking to get a blu-ray player. All of the ones I'm looking at do BD Live and have Ethernet ports but none of them are wireless. Does anyone have any experience of using a wireless adapter/bridge with a blu-ray player?

    The device on the end of the adaptor doesn't matter, doesn't matter if its a blu-ray player or a xbox 360 they all must follow strict standards to work with networks

    Ok. I've set up internal wireless adapters and our laptops have internal ones but I've never had cause to buy an ethernet/wireless bridge adapter, so I'm not sure if there's anything to look out for. Are there different types? Any known to be better than others?

    [Edit] Just had a thought: it's going to be right near my HTPC - is there any mileage in getting a bridge with > 1 port (if such a thing exists, or using a hub) and sharing it between the blu-ray and the HTPC? Is that likely to work better than having two wireless devices in such close proximity?
