mfabien, thanks for the feedback, that's pretty much what I ended up doing. I was talking about this to one of the IT guys at work and he said I should use a wireless ethernet bridge since I already have a wireless router. He loaned me one of his to try out this week at it works great. I also did the firmware update so I could get the Canadian weather. I have to return the bridge eventually, so now I'm on the hunt for one.
The cost for the Samsung wireless USB key is about $130. The ethernet bridge will cost well under that and can do more than the USB can. The big advantage is that I can also use the DHCP server to view pictures and other media from my computer without having to save them to a USB key and shuttle it back and forth. The bridge may also be handy for other uses in the future, so I would rather invest in the more flexible option.
The only thing I'm still experimenting with is setting up my PC to share the files properly. There seems to be a few bugs I need to figure out, probably some compatability issues I need to identify.
