I couldn't find that model number at the LG web site and since you use Virgin for internet access -- I'm guessing this is a European model BD player and internet access. You don't say whether this is a wireless connection or hard wired to a router
Don't know how much help you're going to get from North America
Here's a link to LG's USA support site for network access

Many thanks for your help but as you say I am not the most technically minded bod so left out information that may have helped. sorry about that.However on a brighter note after further fault messages implicating the router I rang Virgin and learnt that I could have saved my time and actually asked my dog who probably would have been more polite but to cut a long story short I then rang samsung and spoke to a lovely man who talked me through a very long procedure and fixed everything so thanks for replying I do appreciate it and am only glad to be able to report I now have a fully working system hooray

One thing to try is to set your network security to wpa or wpa2 if you have it set to wep.

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?
