dinainverso,

Are you using the same LinkStick that came with the BD-P3600? If so, you may need to purchase an additional LinkStick. The WIS09ABGN2 LinkStick only works with the BD-P3600 Blu-Ray player.

I have two Samsung products that are LAN capable. Can I use any USB wirelss LAN adapter, or does it have to be a Samsung Linkstick? I expect that it is propriatary, right?

wamathews,

That is correct, the LinkStick USB devices are proprietary. However, if you're savvy at networking and feel like trying your hand at a wireless bridge and a switch, you might be able to hook both units up to the same bridge. Unfortunately, Samsung can't support anything except the LinkStick, but if you do go the other route, I would recommend getting the same brand of bridge and switch as your router.

Does that help?

BD-P3600 Compatible with Belkin N+ Wireless Router
by jwklaw - 3/8/10 8:54 PM

Hi, I have the BD-P3600 and just purchased the Belkin N+ Wireless Router (F5D8235-4). Can anyone tell me how to change the settings to make it compatible with my BD-P3600?

I'm not that computer savy, so if you can try to make it clear as possible, I would appreciate it. I previously had a Linksys Router that worked, but it was a G and was too slow.

Any assistance is appreciated.

thanks

Can't connect to router
by BlueMoonAthena / March 14, 2010 12:42 AM PST

dinainverso: try setting your router to a different type of security setting. For example, if you currently have your router set up with WPA_PSK, try WEP instead.
