TV with internet option

I am about to take delivery of a panasonic LCD TV TXL37V10b...It has the capability to access the internet through an ethernet socket on the back of the TV. My PC is upstairs (along with the wifi router) and I do not wish to run a cable between the two. What are my options..? I've asked about a wifi dongle (ethernet one end, wifi adaptor at the other) in Maplins but all I got was blank looks. I've also heard that another wireless router could be setup to act as a bridge..no idea how to do this but I do have a spare netgear router. Any other options or advice most welcome.

I have 3 phase but it is just for a pump - the rest is single phase . Does this rule out homeplug?

john bunyan,

If the sockets you are going to use are on the same phase then it's no problem.
