Connecting to an LG BD370

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

Here's what I have: an Airport Express and the BD370 Blu-Ray player, which I'd like to connect to the internet for Netflix streaming, but is not wireless. What are my options here? Do I have to purchase a new router with available ports? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The Best Answer

Welcome to the discussions!
One way or the other, it's going to take a new router.
The #1 best approach would be a wireless router like the AirPort Extreme with 3 ethernet ports. You will have a better, faster and more reliable connection to the Blu Ray player if you can connect using an ethernet cable and avoid wireless for video streaming.
If you want to try doing this using a wireless bridge, you could get a new AirPort Express(n), configure it to "join" the wireless that your current AX is creating, and enable the ethernet port during setup. The Blu-Ray player would then connect to the ethernet port on the Express.
If your current Express is "n" capable, you could optionally configure the new Express(n) to "extend a wireless network". This would give you greater wireless coverage and the ethernet port is enabled in this configuration so you could connect to the DVD player.
I understand that wireless is "cool", but it was never really designed for video streaming. Use ethernet if you possibly can.
