I bought a Sony BDP-S185 Blu ray player to hookup Netflix. I can't connect to wireless router. Why?

I just bought the BDP S-185 blu ray player so that I can access internet (netflixetc.) on my new samsung tv.I tried hooking it up to my wireless router but it keeps saying my connection type iswired and the connection failed.Can I hook this player up to a wireless router or does it need to be plugged into router?Difficult since router is in basement and TV on third floor. Can I use splitter on phonejack (existing on 3rd flr.)and plug in both phone and blu ray player or do I need a netgear typedevice to hook up this player?Thank you in anvance foryour help. Sorry it is so rambled butI am very confused here!

Hi Robert,

 

Welcome to Sony Community!

 

This Blu-ray Player is basic BIV (Basic Internet Video) model and does not support wireless Internet connection. I suggest that you use Ethernet LAN cable for connecting the Player to your router/modem.
