But having solved this too many times with ethernet cables and settings it is usually someone else's problem. To wit I even created a top post in the Cnet Networking forum specifically for Samsung networking.
Then again, I find folk that want it to be Samsung's problem. Ouch.
I have read through dozens of similar posts about Samsung and Mac products not getting along. I've also contacted Samsung via livechat, only to have the same outcome as so many other have had. They are putting the blame back on my AirPort. I hoping there is a fix that someone can point me towards.
I have wired the connection directly into the Blu-Ray player (not using the wireless LAN) and have had to enter all the IP, Router and DNS info manually. I've tried both the IP displayed in my network settings as well as the IP info from my AirPort Express. When I test the network on the Blu-Ray player, I get green checks for the following:
IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, DNS Server
But the it gets hung up on "Internet Service Test" and I get the following message:
"The HTTP port is disabled. Please check if the HTTP port is blocked by something like the internal firewall program."
So based on my admittedly limited experience with network issues, I'm assuming this means I have to open/enable a port on my AirPort Express. That's what the people at Samsung have said as well, though I got the distinct impression they just want it to be someone else's problem.
So now I'm posting here. Anyone?
