Would it be possible to connect the LAN connection on the computer with the LAN connection on the blu-ray, and have the blu-ray player access the Internet that way? In case it's needed, the computer in question is running Windows XP Professional with SP3 and all the latest updates.
Assuming this is possible, it brings up another question: I have my routerís wireless settings to allow only devices with specific MAC addresses. So when I want to connect any device to the router through a wireless connection, I must first add its MAC address to the router. This does not have to be done to devices connected directly (wired) to the router.
The computer in question is connected to the router through a wireless connection. The blu ray player, though it wonít be connected to the router directly, will be using the computerís wireless connection. So will the MAC address of the blu ray player need to be added to the list of MAC addresses the router allows?
thanks for any advice,
