If the blu ray player does not have the ability to install the netflix app then hooking the blu ray player to the router with a wireless adapter will do nothing for you getting netflix.

If that is not your question you will need to clarify what your asking..

Hope that helped.

ok then I'll just ask; how can I get netflix to stream to my blu ray player
You will require a hardware device which is pre installed with Netflix app or compatible to download the app or able to access the internet through a browser on the device and stream Netflix.
So a DVD player with internet browser compatible with Netflix or DVD player with Netflix app.
Other options are devices like roku etc.

Hello,
Something like a Roku Stick would be perfect provided you have an MHL compatible HDMI Input. That is required to power the USB Drive sized Stick. In lieu of having a MHL compatible input, at $99 an Apple TV works quite well. I use mine all the time in spite of the fact that my TV, PS3, OPPO BDP-93 all offer Netflix as well. The Apple TV is also great for the NBA League Pass as well.
Cheers,
JJ
