I think you need an ethernet bridge, im not sure if you can use the front USB ports for that. It would be nice though, if you can let me know because I need to do the same thing.

I'd post a link for you but I dont have 10 post yet so the site doesnt allow me to post links or urls or emails.

I just googled it, came up with one at amazon for 44 bucks, believe it was a linksys. I know netgear has one and d-link, im sure you can find many on the net. try bb or cc as well, I usually go to fry's for stuff like that.

WTF.... I got an email from Toshiba customer service saying that there is no wirless adapter that can be used for this player........ I guess I will use my Xbox 360 HD-DVD to access the internet features of discs. I think it is kinda dumb on Toshiba's part to not let a wireless adapter work with the HD-DVD players. Do they think that everybody has a ethernet port in every room in there house? Has anybody had success in using a wireless adapter?

Would this work with an Xbox 360 in a different room?

I have quite a bit of experience with networking, one thing you HAVE to watch out for is seeing how easy it is to set up. Now you should be able to setup most devices without needing to install software for the A2. But some can be very stubborn. Best thing to do is see if this either A. supports Plug n Play, or B. read through the reviews and see what other people think about the product. In fact i recommend both before purchasing. And FYI, personally, I have quite a bit of trouble with D-Link. I would say more Netgear.
