How to connect BD-P3600 with Netgear N750 Wireless Dual Band

The Wireless Network (5GHz a/n) part of the WNDR4000 that I'm trying to connect with the wireless adapter that comes with the BD-P3600 is giving me trouble. Somehow it seems to relate to the WPA2-PSK [AES] security option that I'm trying to use. The adapter doesn't recognize it. The BD-P3600 will see the network but won't connect to it when I use this (recommended) security setting. If I change it to WPA-PSK [TKIP] or WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES] it will work BUT it will only connect at 54mbps instead of the desired 450mbps. Any suggestions or comments? I'm considering using a Netgear Powerline. But I wanted to ask around first to see if anyone has ideas on how to use my current router and samsung link stick ..

http://www.google.com/search?q=Netgear+Powerline found too many models so I can't comment if that is it.

As to WPA2, some have found to get more than 54mbps we stick to AES. However I've never seen 450mbps. That could be a record held under ideal lab conditions.

The samsung BD-P3600 won't connect when I choose AES

The bottom line is that this is a dual band router and the 2.4ghz connection (speed) is three times the speed of the 5ghz (of the same router). And this is only when I'm using WPA-PSK (TKIP).

Sounds like a bug somewhere.

You'll have to ask the router maker if they know of the magic combo. Here I've been using WPA2 AES with success but the 4000 model is not one I've encountered. It appears you have a new router so ask them what to try next.
