connect sony dvd player to internet

I want to connect my sony blue ray dvd player to the internet but my router is in another room far away. I tried to connect the device directly to my verizon set top box and was unsuccessful. Do I have to buy another router and a splitter for each room that has a dvd player that I want to connect to the internet?  Does anyone have a solution?

Re: connect sony dvd player to internet

unfortunately the ethernet port is not operational, so unless the player is wireless, then you will have to hardwire it. 

Two solutions.  

1.  the router can be moved to any room that has a working fios cable box. You will need a 5-1000mhz two way splitter, and then you take the cable out of the wall, put that splitter at the end of it, then one cable goes to the cable box, and the other to the router, and then it is now close enough for you to hardwire your player. 

2. you can buy an inexpensive used actiontec off of ebay, and then use this configuration and it helps to extend your FiOS network to rooms that are too far for ethernet cables to reach.
