D-Link Router and Wireless Connection

by rtc79 / November 10, 2010 11:57 PM PST

I have a BD-C5500 that will not connect to my D-Link wireless router. I have done everything to get it to connect except remove the WPA and security key. It will not connect, but will connect without any problems with a network cable. I would not like to have 65'(20m) of cable running through my house.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I am running the lastest firmware 1018.

Use WEP. Input a key into key 1. These players have a problem with WPA. Also, set router channel 11 and not auto. And disable your firewall before making those router changes. Once changes are made, enable firewall again. Go connect your BD player. You can also try to turn off your security and get the BD connected first then go back and enable your security again.

WEP is dead.

A wep protected? network is compromised in about 2 minutes. You also find folk that complain about network drops since a side effect of the compromise is the dropped connections.

WEP is BAD ADVICE. You may see it from time to time but there is no hope for it to be fixed.

The Cnet Networking forum has a post specifically for Samsung products and users.

--->> Your issue may be specific to the model of Dlink. But I can't look into that since I can't find the model in question. You might be stuck with the insecure WEP for now.

I also said to try disabling security just long enough to connect BD player then go enable your WPA security again. Once the player is connected and you make a security change, it doesnt affect the player. It will stay connected.

Hello, R. Proffitt, the router sorry for not being more detailed in the first post.
The BD-C5500 has problems with WPA AES settings.

I think I use WPA PSK

And my newest routers are giving me a new WPA/WPA2 PSK option which is nice since it tries WPA2 and falls back to WPA when needed.

There is a sticky with advice in the Cnet Networking forum and the short version is latest firmware, default router settings, simple SSID broadcasting and WPA PSK.

I run a dlink (615)..initialy had the same problem...use wpa and on the router...(auto wpa & wpa2)...make sure of the password

restart everything (modem, then router, then comps then player)...
make sure the player settings are on "wireless"
try connecting ...remember password to connect to the network will be 26 characters
