This is a very handy addition to your electronic "Toolbox." It has been a life saver many times when I go to help fix friend's PC and need to access the internet for updates. Saves hunting for wire, extensions, for direct hookup to a router. Also, when your laptop just doesn't connect to the router it helps to have an alternative WiFi available.
Plus, it is a great way for the kids to access the internet and for us to be aware that they are on the internet. Their PC is located in a remote part of the house without a router cable available. I thought about getting a longer wire but this setup works much better until they are older. When they are done with the PC we just unplug it until next time.

The attached thumbnail is wrong, but the link takes you to the right device. This is the one to get! I've purchased 3 of these. They provide a stronger and more stable connection with my Netgear router than any other full size (like the thumbnail), mini, or half-size mini devices I've tried.
Would I be able to plug this into my Sony Blu Ray player so that I can run Netflix?
Only if your BD player accepts usb wireless adapters, some player require a special wireless adapter, usually proprietary.
As for this device, I've been using one for several months now on one of my computers and it has been working fine. Computer is only on the other side of the basement from my router so I can't say how well this works through floors/walls.
