    You router has a couple of Ethernet ports aswell as wireless functionality right?
    move it to where your router is and plug it in by Ethernet for the updates then move it back when its done.

    or if you don't want to move the BD players, powerline ethernet will wort you out.

    You could get a wireless bridge, this looks like it will do the trick: http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ZyXEL...s-Client-Modes

    £45 thats a lot of money just to update the firmware on your blu ray player.

    If your going to spend money so you dont have to move it then just get a cheap wireless G router/repeater/access point

    Er, yeeees...I didn't say tho that my router is connected to my pc upstairs via an ethernet port, and I really want a connection from downstairs, not only for firmware, but for Youtube (the BD player does that) and for using BD Live discs!

    So not really a solution!

    Well not really 'just firmware' (see other reply)...

    Interested though - cheap I like! Silly question, but with this join my network, with my Network router and that?

    Powernet ethernet, true, gets a bit expensive though

    Mmm, a wireless bridge - good polint...

    Ahh so you need a full internet connection going to it...
    Wireless bridge from my experience can be a bit of a ballache to get set up correctly but once you get there it should just act as part of the network. If you are feeling up to a bit of a challenge for the the bridge but if you just want to plug and go then i would go for the powerline.
