first off not going to happen second off purchase your own internet access instead of pirating a signal from your neighbor.

The reason this won't work is internet sharing shares the internet from one computer to multiple computers not to blu-ray players sorry.

Two posts and you call a vetern member a loser? Not a good way to start off on the forum. He gave you good advice, maybe try looking in the mirror before you call anyone a loser.

The "veteran" member started off by insulting the new member, so I see no issue.

If I knew jack about wireless, I would be glad to help, because not everyone sharing wireless is stealing it from their neighbor.

However, I'm guessing you would need a wireless router/hub type deal to share your connection.

excuse me but if we would please read the first post he said he was pirating the signal from his neighbor 300m away using a usb wireless booster the reason i said he needs his own wireless connection for is because the blu-ray player needs to send and receive data and a fast rate which is why when accessing items such as rio on blu-ray the disk fails to boot or load because the connection sucks and it cannot send to verify the blu-ray live features several blu-ray players have had this issue with several movies including.

The alien anthology

rio

and even star trek.

i have experienced this myself several times the worst being rio to prevent piracy on blu-ray live enabled players the movie rio tries to dial out if your connection isn't up to snuff you will get half way through the film and the movie will freeze and pause if you turn off the connection the movie stops doing it.

Look at blu-ray player updates there is a reason why we update blu-ray players it's not to add new features but to boot more and more different movies with advance security.

i wasn't being rude do you understand laws in different countries.

in certain countrys you can get busted for stealing internet access there have been 4 cases already where the owner of the internet wireless adapter sued the individual that was using the connection without permission all cases required the persons or persons that where using it to pay for the internet bill plus back payments.

all cases where won and not in the users favor most of the time

even though the original post is over 3 months old, this is how I read it,

received and pirating do not mean the same thing, at least to me.
