thinking of getting the Sony 370 bluray player from amazon. it says you can stick a Sony USB wifi dongle in it to connect to Internet, using WLAN. is this the same as WIFI, so presumably it will connect to my wireless router?


Yes but you may want to look at the cost of the wifi dongle first. It may be cheaper to buy some homeplugs.

the dongle is expensive, I have mine connected via ethernet cable

You can also get a wifi dongle which plugs into the ethernet port and doesn't need a separate power supply. More info here --> wifibridge.co.uk/
They go for about 30 quid on ebay.
