    Wii as a Ethernet Bridge

    Hi,
    I have a Wii and it is hooked up to my wireless network... Good stuff.
    I have a BlueRay device that is near the HDTV that ONLY has a Ethernet port, non-wireless. Anyone know if i can use an ethernet cable and cable the blue-ray to the Wii so that the Wii acts as a bridge and allows my blue Ray to have internet access.

    Thanks!

    i'm ok (no where near great) at networking, but i'm going to have to say no to this.

    this is what i did.
    i didnt want to buy wireless network cards for my pc, xbox, and other pc.
    the wireless router is downstairs (DIR-655)
    i purchased a "WIRELESS BRIDGE" (DAP-1522 $90 i got it when the xbox wireless adapter was the same price as it)
    think of it as a switch but it connects wirelessly to your router.

    the reason why i went with D-Link on the wireless bridge is because the Linksys had a single input port which didnt help me at all. the D-Link has 4.
