Ok. I was able to get it to pass the tests by putting the gateway IP into the DNS server IP spaces. This also allows me to connect to Pandora and Netflix.
I STILL cannot connect to Blockbuster, YouTube, AND I can't update my firmware over the network. Current firmware is 2.05. Not overly convinced upgraded to 2.08 will do anything for me, after reading the change log.
I'm having trouble getting my BDP-1600 connected.
I've tried a few different network cables, and the hub I'm using has a computer hooked up to it that works fine, so I don't think it is a hardware issue outside of the Samsung unit itself.
When I test the unit in the setup menu, it passes the 1st three tests, but fails the last test. I've noticed that with the address setting set to auto the default gateway is incorrect (192.168.0.1). When I manually set it to the correct gateway IP, and give it a valid IP address within the range allowed on my router, it fails the network test at test #2.
On my router I've tried turning off the firewall, and adding the IP address that is displayed when the BDP-1600 is on auto address.
My router is a Verizon Actiontec MI424, and I have a FIOS connection.
