TCPIP/IP configurations can be rough on owners. Why not go back to what works? Or at least a standard 255.255.255.0 netmask.
Internet access was setup and working fine until I changed the IP addresses of home network.
Comcast for internet access
LinkSys WRT350N Router (DHCP server as well)
current IP of router 192.168.24.192 (previous 22.214.171.124)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.224 (previous 255.255.255.0)
In Network setup, when I set the TV to "auto" mode I get:
MAC Address ... good
IP Address, Subnet, Gateway, DNS Server ... failed
The network configuration (IP) is not valid. Check the network settings and enter a valid value before trying again.
If I set the TV to "manual" with the following information:
IP: 192.168.24.194 (previously was 192.168.1.4)
Subnet: 255.255.255.224 (previously was 255.255.255.0)
Gateway: 192.168.24.192 (previously was 192.168.1.1)
DNS: 68.x.x.x <-- provided by comcast (did not change)
This fails at Domain Ping:
Connecting to external device failed. Please contact your network service provider.
Other devices can access the internet fine. I've reset the modem and router a dozen times. Even left the TV unplugged for an hour.
Recall that this was working before with a statis
Does anybody know what server the domain ping is trying to reach?
Is there a way to reset the network?
I've read about a service menue but the key presses didn't work for this tv.
Thanks in advance!
