Currently, my HTPC is routed to my Telus PVR via ethernet whioch is in turn connected by coaxial cable to the D-Link triple plan modem router.

I acquired a Seiki BD-660 BD player and some BD movies want internet access.

My question is: Can I pop in a router at the Telus PVR to connect both the HTPC and the BD player?

I have an old US Robotics and also a LinkSys wifi router I am planning to use for this purpose. Do I simply connect everything via a router port? Any other tips and tricks?

That sounds like it would work but would probably result with you being double NAT'd which would slow down anything on the second router. A better option would be to install a switch after the ALU and then have one port go to the D-Link and another port go to your router.

No you can't use a router at the STBs point of connection. Use a 10/100 rated switch, besides being cheaper than a router its the correct piece of hardware :)

Seriously a switch is what you want and will work perfectly to give your BD live Bluray its connection.
