need to connect blu-ray player to wireless internet


hi, i just got an lg blu-ray player (by and by, the manual says that it is running a busybox installation).

i tried plugging in a usb wifi adapter to it but that seems not to work.

my plan now is to connect it using cat-5 cable to my laptop running fedora-11 live-usb (my laptop can connect to my wireless router upstairs).

how do i configure fedora to share the internet connection to the blu-ray player so that it can use the netflix streaming capability ?

thx,

First things first the ethernet cable has to be a crossover cable , and this should bring you the rest of the way there.

^ tahnks for the link; i cant find gsheild and firestarter seems a little buggy.

is there anything someone can prescribe that works via the command line ?

rite now i have my fedora-live-11-usb laptop connected via crossover cable to the blueray player. but it still says the dynamic network connection is not working. (i also tried it setting a static ip).

Connect it to wireless router instead, if it has empty ethernet slots.

Move router downstairs.
Or you can think about to buy 5-cat ethernet cable and put it in your house.
But before check if it will work like this. Connect it to router and check.

it seems to get an ip-address ok from the laptop.

maybe i have some wrong iptables rule and it is not forwarding my internet connection well.

There are many links that explain how to configure internet connection sharing using linux.
Here are some links to get you started. In your case to share your wireless you would use the following rule instead.
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o wlan0 -j MASQUERADE

http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/rhel-fe...sharing-howto/
http://lindesk.com/2007/04/internet-...sing-iptables/

Are you using a different subnet for the player then the router's

^ i was using this as a guide but i guess there are a few typpos:
http://newbiedoc.sourceforge.net/net...megateway.html
i get this error in 9.2.2:
Code:
/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -m state --state NEW -i ! eth0 -j ACCEPT
Using intrapositioned negation (`--option ! this`) is deprecated in favor of extrapositioned (`! --option this`).
and this doesnt seem rite:
Code:
/sbin/iptables -A FORWARD -i eth0 -o eth0 -j REJECT
is that forwarding eth0 packets to eth0 (in my case eth2 to eth2) ? wouldnt i want to send eth1 packets to eth2 -or- eth2 to eth1 ?
i dont think neither worked.

Code:
[liveuser@localhost ~]$ ifconfig && iwconfig

If either end is GigE then the above statement is not true. GigE will automatically handle doing this without using a crossover cable.

here's the final score:
eth0 is my ethernet card connected to my blu-ray player via crossover cable (i also tried with a regular cat-5 cable and it worked just the same).
eth1 is my wifi adapter connected to my netgear router upstairs.

i ran:
Code:
[liveuser@localhost ~]$ cat masq.ksh
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.10.101 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.10.255
   iptables --flush            
   iptables --table nat --flush
   iptables --delete-chain     
   iptables --table nat --delete-chain
   iptables --table nat --append POSTROUTING --out-interface eth1 -j MASQUERADE
   iptables --append FORWARD --in-interface eth0 -j ACCEPT
   echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
route add  -net 192.168.10.0  netmask 255.255.255.0 gw 192.168.5.1 dev eth0
on the fedora laptop.
and then put in the settings for my blu-ray player:
ip: 192.168.10.105
netmask: 255.255.255.0
gateway: 192.168.10.101
dns: 192.168.5.1 (my netgear router)

done,
