gateway ping error

In reply to: samsung BD-C6800 gateway ping error

I too have had problems getting around the gateway ping error. I finally figured it out by disabling my Wireless Security i.e. WEP. I tried entering everything in manually, but would get stopped at the Gateway Ping.

Then I went back into my BD-C6500 set up screen.

This is what I did:
Go to the Settings screen> Initial Settings> Language (English)> Start> 16:9 Normal> Wireless (It searches and finds the Network)> HomeNet X (I choose my network)> Choose yours (Connecting to wireless network)> OK> Auto not Manual> It does its test:

? Mac Address
? IP Address
? Gateway Ping
? Internet Service Test

Your network is operating properly.> OK

And your now connected.

I'm now going to try and put the WEP Security back up on my Apple Extreme and post back if it works or not.

After trying many combination's to get the WEP security password to no avail, I tried using the recommended WPA2 Personal Wireless Security.

I changed the Wireless Security to WPA2 Personal, gave it a new password (8 to 63 ASCII characters). I then selected Encryption Type: WPA2 Only and set Group Key Timeout: to 10000 minutes and hit OK.

I then went back to the Settings screen> Initial Settings> and followed the prompts like above and it is now working just fine with Wireless Security.

Good luck.

I still cant connect using the same process - Please help

In reply to: good info

I have a BD-C6800. I tried Auto and it wasnt connecting. So I put it in Manual and filled all values. Now this is what is happening

MAC Address - Ok
IP, Subnet, Gateway, DNS - Ok
Gateway Ping - X

I even changed my router's setting Authentication to WPA2-PSK from its earlier WPA-PSK+WPA2-PSK which caused the encryption to be TKIP+AES. Now it is just AES.

Can someone PPPPlease help?

i too am having the same problem. i have a westall versilink 327w from my dsl provider(Verizon). I have not had any problems hooking up anything else except the new blu ray player. i hooked up 3 laptops and 2 wii systems without any problem at all. I even tried to use a cisco wireless n router to the player itself with all the hookups and still get the same message with the gateway pink . i am ready to return the player to the store where i bought it and just take my wii game into my room. it should not be this hard. Can someone help.

The 5th post was mine but no so-called samsung "tech" experts ever had the courtesy to troubleshoot it. I troubleshot my own way. Please try this - Here is how it works.
1) Go with Manual Setup of the Player's settings for your Home's network - the SSID and Password
2) Before you go to the details of IP Address, Subnet etc, go to your PC (any of your laptops or PCs that can connect to Internet thru your router), Click Start button, type Run and in that popup box, type cmd to run the MSDOS Prompt. When that DOS Prompt comes up, just type IPCONFIG/ALL. A Whole bunch of data is displayed. Scroll up till you see the whole information - subnet mask, Gateway, DNS Server etc. It will also display the IP Address of that Laptop/PC.
3) In the IP Address Boxes of the Samsung player, type the value that is atleast 10 digits over the IP Address of the value the IPCONFIG displayed (If the IP Address of your Laptop/PC is, in the Box type
4) Subnet mask is most usually (or type the value the IPCONFIG DOS Prompt showed
5) The Gateway box, type the value that IPCONFIG showed -typically it will be
6) For the DNS Server, it will be usually or (or simply use the value from IPCONFIG display Except

Now test the Network. I am sure it will be resolved.
