What dongle for my new Sony KDL503?

Hi everybody

Recently purchased the above and want to take advantage of the Internet which is offered. The Sony dongle is quoted at £57 on Amazon. This seems rather expensive as all I will want to do is view 'incoming', i.e. Y tube, BBC i player, etc.
I have a BT wireless router which runs my desk top and a laptop.

Is there a cheaper dongle that I can buy to plug into my Sony?

Thanks

Or the Edimax Wifi 802.11n USB2 Adapter

I would think twice before taking the advice above. You'll find the Sony Dongle is a little more than a normal Wifi PC Dongle. You'll be wasting your money

There is no compatatibilty between PC Wifi Dongles and Consumer Electronic Dongles at the present time.

Have looked into it,and have decided to try a couple of Home plug Adaptors having read many good reviews.

Exactly what I use on my Samsung TV.

Apparently no other dongle will work with Sony TV's. I use a vanilla 85 MBps homeplug and it works fine.
