Blue Ray Player 1600... can NOT establish the access point

by Shedlarski / October 2, 2010 1:00 PM PDT

Hi! HELP!!!
we are finally getting around to set the blue ray player up for wireless. we plugged the LAN adapter in the series-8000 TV and the wireless works. The BRP is another story. The set up is as stated in the manual.

DHCP>on
DNS>auto
PROXY>off
NTP SERVER>on

the date and time are set up correctly and the time zone is also set

It will not let us set up the access point nor will it recognize the u-verse wireless router (like our tv, 3 computers and 2 iPhones do) to enter our passwords and other information. After reading and finding many failed attempts to clarify the situation - we're disheartened, but need help. let's make this work or else i'm returning the adapters and buying the Apple TV to stream the internet TV.

I'd like to get this BRP working it was one of the sales points for buying the player. Is it true the Netflix widget doesn't work now???

Thanks,
Candice

There are fine posts and discussions about ATT Uverse and that Netflix app so I'll just defer to those. (still seems to be a dead horse and not a Samsung issue but one with Netflix and the internet providers at loggerheads.)

About the wifi setup, over in the CNET Networking forum we have a post for Samsung owners to get started.

Thanks Bob!
That's pretty unfortunate with Netflix and ... everyone (?) i was reading through the other threads and was lost with everyone's 2 cents and gripes. We just want it to work... i will check it out.

While there is something going on with the ISP (internet providers) and more, your issue sounds like the old security issue (WEP for example is not secure and can lead to your troubles) or the wifi is too far away.

The Cnet Networking Forum has a top post just for Samsung networking. In your reply I can't tell if you used that information.
