Does your DVD player have an ethernet port? If so then what is it for, does your DVD player have a Streaming Media Server built in or what is it? The model number may be useful.

That said, you will probably not be able to hook any USB devices to your DVD player and will need to get a device called a Wireless Gaming Adapter (WGA) which will hook direct to the ehternet port.

The Ethernet port on the DVD player is usually used for a wired ethernet connection

"The Ethernet port on the DVD player is usually used for a wired ethernet connection"....

for what? What does it do? I have worked with DVR systems that use Ethernet to stream video to other computers in the house or for scheduling online. So what does the DVD use the ethernet for?

Again the WGA is what you need. It works with these types of devises because it turns Wired Ethernet to WiFi.

Sounds like you need a female USB to male Ethernet converter, like this:

ACE OMEGA - Thanks for your responses. The ethernet port is to stream video from the internet (from my wireless router). It looks like NAJITECH has the answer I'm looking for. If either of you see a potential problem with this, please reply.
NAJITECH: I thank you too for your reply.
Thanks again.
