I have no personal experience using the WiFi Extender to provide a home network (with internet access) to a non-wireless Blu-ray player. From the WiFi Extender manual, I copy/pasted the reference, below. In any case, the internet download speed (say, from Netflix, etc., to your Blu-ray player) will be limited to the strength of the wireless radio signal that maintains the connection between your router (wireless access point function) and the data capacity limit of the 802.11-N wireless network standard, right?. An ideal setup for maximum data throughput may be to place the WiFi Extender within 20ft. and "line of sight" (no walls, cabinets, etc.) of your wireless router. I have this ideal setup and I regularly connect my mobile phone and laptop at 144Mbps. I hope this helps.
"1-Port Wi-Fi Adapter
Once the Extender is connected to your existing Wi-Fi network, you can use the Ethernet port on the Extender to connect a device wirelessly to your network. Simply plug the Ethernet cable from any Ethernet-enabled device (such as a connected TV, Blu-ray player, or gaming console) to the Ethernet port of the Extender, and enjoy wireless connectivity on the connected device."
I personally would not use this device for that, but it could be done as long as the bluray player has an ethernet port. You should review forums on "Bluray ethernet" to get some useful info on what works best for your setup. A quick google search should bring up some ideas. Good luck!
