Pleas help! samsung bd-d5250c won't connect to my router

by jwkirch / September 3, 2011 1:24 PM PDT

In mid August, my samsung bd-d5250c suddenly was no longer able to connect [wired] to my WRT54G Linksys router. When I run the network setup wizard on the player, all i get is a 'Wired network connection failed' message.

- The player hooked up to the internet through the router perfectly when i brought it home, worked fine until mid august
- Other resources are able to get on line wirelessly through the router
- MAc Address / IP address / Subnet Mask all have appropriate values
- Gateway and DNS server are both
- DHCP is turned on in the router
- I did not recently update software in either component
- I have reset the router, but changed no settings

I have the same problem suddenly, it's done this before and started working again. The error is "interface error occured". Now it is doing it again. By the way, with DHCP on the device (bluray) is suppose to request (dynamically set) an IP as it always has. Why would I manually set it? Sounds like the NIC to me.

Unplugged / plugged back (cold booted) it now it sees the gateway.

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?
