I have a sony 55" TV and a sony BR player.  I want to stream netflix movies to the BR player.  My Ht is kind of complex.  I have an older amp and I have to run the sound from the BR separately through the amp to pick up the audio through my sound system, otherwise I'd run it through my TV.  Anyway, my question is what type of wireless lan adaptor should I buy?  The sony adaptor runs close to $100.  I see others priced at about $50.  I do know I need the 802.11N adaptor but my question is will the less expensive adaptor work just as well?  Thanks for any and all help!!!

TV has been more or less wireless since its inception.

Any wireless access point (WAP) from NewEgg will work.

I tried that and Sony in their fn pursuit of the consumers cash uses a proprietary wireless lan device.   I did try a D-Link adaptor and it was not compatible with my BD player.  I went ahead and bought the Sony adaptor for $80.00 at BB and it does work but it chaps my ass.  I am streaming movies now and it is pretty slick

Without an exact model number I had to assume it had an RJ-45 (ethernet) connection that you would be plugging the WAP into.  I've done that with multiple Blu-Rays and DirecTV DVR's but none were Sony models.  I avoid Sony like the plague.
