First of all Id like to give thanks to my wife, because it was her who purchased the LG BD630 with Netflix and other streaming features that required a hard LAN line and but did not include WIFI capabilities. Wrong! If you follow these simple steps you can connect any Laptop with an Ethernet port to your LAN Blu-ray player. Follow my homemade blu-ray wifi adapter steps and you will be streaming Netflix in no time.
1. Cross over Ethernet cable , do not confuse this with a standard Ethernet cable , (There is a difference)
2. A Wifi Connection with Internet Access
3. Laptop or Net-book with a standard Ethernet port
Step 1 – Connect the crossover cable to the blu-ray player and the laptop
Step 2 – (Laptop )Open the windows control panel and select –> Network and Internet –> View Network Status and Tasks –> Change Adapter Settings
Step 3 – Select both the Wireless Connection and the Local Area Connection and select–> Bridge Connections. This step creates a bridge to share your wireless connection with your LAN Connection
Step 4… Depending on your Blu-ray Player, this process has been tested and proven to work on an LG BD630 .. locate the settings menu and select the Options –> Setup –> Network –> Connection Settings –> Connection Status. Connection should display Success. with IP Information obtained by you local DNS Server ( Internet Provider)… Be sure to allow your blu-ray player a few minutes to obtain IP configuration. I also recommend you power cycle your blu-ray player.
