Answer
Some flexibility on your part is required

If you won't relocate all of your computer (assuming you have a desktop) & AV equipment together, you would be required to run a long ethernet cable across the room unfortunately. The ethernet cable would start from your DSL modem and run across the room where it would connect to your router near the AV equipment. The Blu Ray player and/or HDTV would also be plugged into the router via ethernet. There's no way around this unless you want to start using wireless dongles which I rarely if ever prefer over a wired connection, especially for netflix streaming.
