1 PC with 2 NICs...trying to "Share" wired ethernet connection to blu-ray player

I recently had a cable modem installed at my home and I got a new Sony S5100 Blu-ray player (which has a NIC built-in). I have a PC with 2 NICs in it. My OS is Win 7 64-bit and I'm trying to get the second NIC in my PC to "share" or "bridge" itself to my primary NIC which works fine. The APIPA demon keeps assigning a 169.254.x.x IP on the 2nd NIC which is attached to the Blu-ray player...and Windows and Sony all report the reason it won't work is because it's a "Public" network and not to use the 169 range. OK. DHCP is enabled on both NICs, and I also tried disabling DHCP on the 2nd NIC and setting the default gateway to the IP of the primary NIC, and of course trying the Windows ICS and Bridging built-in routines. No luck. Somebody convince me I can pipe output via the 2nd NIC to my Blu-ray player so I can watch Netflix lusty vampire movies without buying a router?

I've been doing some reading about it (similar situation)...the most logical thing to do is by manually assigning an IP to the 2nd nic (ie. 10.x.x.x 255.255.255.0), don't forget to use cross over cable for the 2nd connection, the one connecting to your BP. Then to see each other use the command "route add 10.x.x.x 255.255.255 192.168.x.x
