Default wireless bridge for blu-ray player

Can one of you recommend me a decent wireless bridge?

What I am trying to do is link my blu-ray player to stream netflix off the net that is located in another room. The blu-ray player does not do wireless so I need a bridge. However I am concerned with the quality or speed if I do it wireless. I would hard wire it but I would have to drill the walls.

I have never used a wireless bridge before so can one of you recommend a decent one that will get the job done that isnt too pricey if possible?

Thanks in advance

You should be able to use any USB wireless G adapter.

Get N if you have an N router...

What BD player is this?

This is the sony bdp-n460. On the sony website they say: "In addition to a built-in Ethernet port, the BDP-N460 includes built-in software that makes it easy to connect this player to your existing wireless network by pairing the optional Linksys Wireless Ethernet Bridge (WET-610N) to connect to your home router (each sold separately). Or you can use the built-in Ethernet port to use a wired connection. "

But im just not going to jump on that deal without some feedback first.

Oh I see... it has to be ethernet, no usb support.

I would just go with what sony recommends in this case.
