If you have a way to hard-wire the Internet, you can use the Ethernet port connected to your router.
If you're looking to connect via wireless connection, you'll need the separate WIS09ABGN wireless adapter. If you go that route, you will need to have a wireless router connected either within, or to your modem.
Does that answer your question?
I am trying to connect my BD-P1600 to the internet so I can watch Netflix, but I couldn't. I see the message "unable to connect please see the network setup section in manual". I have Motorolla SB5100 Surfboard modem. so I am connected to the internet with basic cable, this modem has no integrated rouuter in it. when I checked the blu-ray manual, I see that either I connect a modem with integrated router via utb cable to the LAN port at the blu-ray back, or I should have modem and router then connect them to the lan port. is that the problem? I mean if I bought a router, will that make the internet work? I see also in the manual, "for DSL users please use a router to connect". please confirm if that the problem.
or this is may be because i don't have the minimum speed of internet so it can run the netflix? I had the same setup in the past but it was a modem with integrated router and it was with higher speed internet and it was working fine.
may that be related to the network setup? I mean do I need to disable DHCP and enter ip address, subnetmask, and gateway manually?
Ps: the internet is working properly in my laptop and I have no problem in audio or vidio applications using the laptop.
I look forward to hearing from you soon. Appreciate your help.
