Is there anyway to get Alfa wireless working with a Vizio blu-ray player?

by on December 28, 2010

Q: I just got a Vizio blu-ray with apps player that connects to the internet via ethernet, as a present. I do not have a modem and have been getting the internet wireless with the help of an Alfa wireless network adapter to my laptop. The Vizio has a usb port and I tried plugging the alfa adapter into it but it didn’t recognize any network. My question is, is there a way to get wireless internet to my vizio player and its ethernet cable? If there is a way, is there a better way and a more cost effective way. I realize I should have just gotten the wireless version, but this was a present and I want them to see it works for me.

    You won’t be able to do anything with the alfa wireless network adapter.

    A wireless bridge would probably work, assuming it was able to properly pick up whatever open wifi connection you’re taking advantage of. Example of a possible device option here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833124338
