Gateway ping failed

Hi, I just bought samsung blue ray bd-5500c. I have lynksys router model wrtu54g-tm. I had rosewill rnx-n100 LAN adopter. I am trying to connect blue ray using rnx-n100 to Internet. I changed ip address, gateway.when I try doing network test, it just don't go past gateway ping. I called samsung, lynksys,verizon but no advice worked. I already tried turning my router firewall off.I will really appreciate any help and advice. Thanks in advance.

"I changed ip address, gateway.when I try doing network test"

In the Cnet Networking forum we suggest letting the router assign all that. If it fails to get an IP, fix that.

same here

I have the same issue. Bought a UN55C9000 and own an Apple airport extreme. Hooked up the internet and it worked great the first night. Next morning when I woke up it failed. Entered all the router info manually and now it fails on "Gateway Ping". I have so many other items connected to this network; my iMac, a laptop, my iPhone, PS3... even the wireless touchscreen remote that came with the TV stays connected but for some reason the TV fails. I find this very disheartening after spending the amount of money I did on this. Searched all over the net and there are no straight answers. How is it that it works one day and not the next? Very suspect.

In the Cnet Networking forum we don't suggest such a setup. You are very much on your own on setups we don't cover in that forum.

That doesn't help those that have other issues but I can tell you that better than 9 out of 10 networks just work withing minutes of me setting up the router per the Cnet Forum suggested settings.
