How to Connect a Router to a Blu-Ray System?

Question: I have DSL/cable package via Time Warner, which is hooked up to my PC in the back bed room. It has a wireless router which allows me to connect my laptop to the internet. I also just purchased a Samsung Blu-Ray P2550 player with built in Netflix and Pandora internet radio (which sits in my living room).

Long story short, I need to connect a router to the Blu Ray in order to utilize Pandora. What router would you recommend I purchase? or is there a better alternative to connect the Blu Ray to Time Warner's cable/DSL system?

How to set up your own home network

If you own two or more computers, you can connect them together on the same network and gain some immediate benefits.

With two or more computers on the same network, you'll be able to print to the same printer, which is the set up I have at home. My wife's laptop is downstairs in the kitchen desk, and the printer is upstairs next to my workstation. We can both use the same printer, which means we don't have to keep a printer in the kitchen - a big plus for saving precious desk space.

You'll also be able to copy files from one computer to another if they're connected on the same network, and can even share an Internet connection.

To set up a home network on Windows XP, you'll need to run the Network Setup Wizard on each computer. Click the Start button and then select Control Panel --> Network and Internet Connections --> Network Setup Wizard.

Choose one computer to be the main server, through which the other machines will connect to the Internet. The other computers will then connect to the Internet through this main server.

Run the Network Setup Wizard on the other computer(s), but select the option to connect to the Internet through the first computer.

Give each computer a unique name and description, so they can be identified on the network.

Use the same WORKGROUP name on all your computers - this is how Windows figures out that they need to all be on the same network.
