Samsung BDC5500 Connectivity - HTTP port blocked

by pjburg7 / May 28, 2010 4:05 PM PDT

Yes, there a lot of postings on connectivity issues, but mine seem to defy everything that has been posted, so here it goes:
-IP is Comcast; I have a Motorola Docsis 3.0 modem
-Cisco WRT110 (Linksys) Router; upgraded to latest firmware
-Bluray right away could connect to the network; during the network test, it got to ping the gateway (3rd step), then came back with the "HTTP port is blocked by something like an internal firewall program..." message
-I opened ports 80, 8080 and 443 (per some suggestions on the boards) to the IP address assigned to the Bluray
THIS WORKED....had netflix, etc. I upgraded the Bluray firmware like it wanted me to, which went smoothly. This worked fine for roughly a week or so. Then, out of the blue, went to access Youtube internet connectivity....same error as before. Absolutely nothing changed in my network during this period. (Wireless connectivity to internet via laptop is fine)

Linksys only lists two ports, 80 (http) and 443 (https), realted to "HTTP", as this error is telling me. Is this just a generic error that's sending me down the wrong path? I'm at my wits end....are there other ports I need to open to the bluray? Something else I'm missing?

Unfortunately I can't assist with router configurations. There aren't any ports I suggest opening, and would have to refer you to your router's troubleshooting. Opening ports isn't recommended for security purposes, and there may be a different option or setting that would allow the player to connect to stream content.

Same exact problem except for that port stuff

So I'm pretty sure its Comcast.

I just moved. Actually twice, because of dates. Therefore I have used my Blu Ray player a lot of places recently. Originally I had it hooked up to Embarq (Century Link), I moved in to another address temporarily connected again with Embarq at a different location. Everything worked great.

Finally moved to new home. Got Comcast, Motorolla router. Twice as fast (apparently 25 mbs)

Blu Ray player doesn't connect at all. Won't connect to ISP, wont connect to anything. Hulu says Network Interference. I have reset to factory default. It can't even get past the default, says the isp cant connect.

On top of that I notice delay on my computer and when I play SWTOR.

The only thing I can think of is that it's the router. I read some more complicated stuff on other treads about unblocking stuff etc. but still looking into it.

Please let me know if you find anything else out! Thanks.
