Blue Ray and Netflix

by tedcooper57 / August 1, 2010 5:19 AM PDT

I have a blue ray player connected to an HDTV. We have subscribed to Netflix and can not get movies to play. We get an error message that says to check the ethernet connection or see your manual for wireless settings. Cox cable is our internet provider and have a wireless router in the house. We successfully view movies with the laptops in the house. Any ideas why we can't make the TV work?

Samsung Model BD-P1600

Connections as follows

Cox Cable into Modem
Coax cable from modem to Wireless router
Coax cable from router to Surge protector In
Coax cable from surge protector to Cable box at TV (Sony Bravia)
HDMI cable from cable box to HDMI #3 Input to TV
HDMI cable from Blue Ray to HDMI #2 input to TV

I would be great to pick up the download via my wireless router?

Thanks for your assistance.

Making network connection

I have the same model BluRay player and have experienced the same problem. While this is more of a band-aid than a fix, what has worked for me is to shut the BR player off then restart the modem and router. Turn the BR player back on and wait at least a couple minutes before trying to connect to Netflix to allow the BR player to successfully connect with your network.

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?
