I have a Sony BDP-S380 blue ray player which is "wifi ready" and requires sonys special usb wireless adapter to get it on the net. I do not have said usb dongle but do have an old ATT U-verse router model #526AC FXN. The blue ray player does however have an ethernet port. I am running Time Warner for internet with their wireless router. I am wondering how I could hook the u-verse router up to the blue ray player via ethernet and get it on the internet in order to stream Netflix without having to buy the Sony usb dongle. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Use the Ethernet port.  Run a wire from it to your TW router or use powerline adapters.  Forget trying to use the usb/wifi if you aren't going to buy the adapter.

As mentioned above (and Tom's Hardware) the Time Warner modem/router will have additional ports on the back that you can connect your Sony's Ethernet port to. The other threads you have AnandTech, and Tom's Hardware  also have good information.
