Our BDP-1600's wireless connection to Netflix, YouTube etc. was working great the first couple of weeks, then in the last couple of days it quit. We simultaneously started having some problems with the wireless connection on our computers, so I figured it was about time we got a newer router anyway. (We'd had a Netgear from the a/b/g era, so I thought we'd move up to one capable of Wireless-N.) Our previous router had WEP security, but my husband's recollection of hooking up the Samsung wireless adapter to the Blu-Ray only involved plugging it in and everything working after that. It would have to have been about that simple for him to make it work, because although he's quite intelligent and good with a lot of the MECHANICS of electronics hookup, anything involving the computer side of things is pretty unfamiliar for him. I don't remember having to put in any codes or keys for the router connection itself, only having to go connect to Netflix and get codes, etc., so that the account would be linked to the player.
Now we've got a LinkSys WRT-320N hooked up, and although my computer is connecting just fine, any attempt to get Netflix or YouTube to work gives us an error message of "Cannot connect to your home network Confirm that your router is on and working by attempting to connect to the Internet using a computer. For detailed instructions, see the Network Setup section of your Samsung user manual." We've tried unplugging the wireless adapter from the Blu-Ray player and plugging it back in, but no matter whether we try the front or the back, it doesn't work.
All computers in the home are Windows XP, either XP Pro or XP home depending on the computer. We haven't added any wireless devices or anything between the time it all worked and the time it quit. Connecting with the cable isn't an option because the modem is in a different room from the TV and player.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
