722-Homeplug- Is the Ethernet port active?

I'm probably pushing the envelope but my question is a following.

If I connect the 722 to a power outlet that has a home plug adapter connected to a router, will the Ethernet plug on the back of the 722 be active. I have a blu-ray player at the same location and want to connect it to the 722 if possible and use the BDLIve and Netflix download on the blu-ray.

I know that's probably pushing the envelope but it would avoid another home plug adapter and the cabling would be a lot cleaner.

As said, that won't work. You're better off setting up an ethernet bridge, then plugging the 722 and your BD player into that for Internet access.

I picked up a Cisco/Linksys PLK300 kit and use the 4-port for my 722, PS3 (streaming video from my Windows Home Server!), etc.

Plug it in and forget it. It just works. Unless you live in an apartment, skip the encryption stuff.
