I purchased a Sony Blueray netfilx read device but the back of it only accepts an ethernet jack to connect to the LAN.  (at Home).  The Ethernet at my home is not anywhere near the Netflix box.  I figure If I can get a wireless router or other type of accesspoint (with an ethernet jack on the back for LAN Devices)  to connect to my other wireless accesspoint then I would have the problem solved.  I don't know the lingo for this type of connection.  I have seen range extenders but those usually don't have an Ethernet Jack on the back to connect LAN devices.  They only extend to other Wireless Devices

The question:  What is this type of networking configuration called?  What is the name of the device that I am looking for?  What is the specification that I will be looing for on the wireless router?
