Smile Bluray players Wireless network capabilities?

I'm going to purchase a new bluray player. I have an extensive collection of movies on my computer's that are hooked up on a wireless router. What bluray specs should I be looking for to have the bluray player showing up as a device on the network so I can send the file(s) to the bluray player?

I'm new at this. Thanks

I'd look for a blu-ray player that has built in wireless and DLNA compatibility like this Samsung.

Penyan76,

Samsung BD players a sleek, esthetically pleasing and loaded with the latest great features . . . with that said (and I own one)-- what they do NOT have is great reliability or longevity. Do a good bit of research before you buy any specific model.

I have a great Samsung TV, a Samsung refrigerator, phone, washer, dryer-- but I would not buy (another) Samsung Blu Ray player.

Rick, I've had recent bad luck with Samsung and Toshiba also. What blu-ray players would also serve as a media player. I want to be able to send from my mac computers to the player (hard wired) or maybe later wireless. My current netgear wireless router does not support 802.11n.

Here's a nice Sony that'll work perfect for you. It has wireless, 10/100 NIC, DLNA, dual USB ports for external hard drives and 3D . Its also only $99 right now.

I'm looking at Sony (BDP-S390) and Panasonic myself (I do not need 3D) . . . my Samsung recently "froze", but I do not use the BD player for streaming and don't watch many discs-- but I do a LOT of streaming from my NAS and from the internet; I use a Logitech Revue and a G-Box (Mightnight) for the streaming- both work well, very well. All my streaming is wireless; there are at least a dozen wireless devices in the condo.

A couple of years ago I bought a <$30 refurib Netgear wireless router and DOUBLED my wireless speed . . . You need to get a new router-- it can make more difference than you may realize.

That happened to me recently - when I had to replace my router + modem my speeds increased dramatically
