Samsung BD-P3600: Wireless Router Issues

by tsutter / December 29, 2009 11:54 AM PST

Our Samsung BD-P3600 detected our wireless network flawlessly and was setup in minutes. We were able to get it hooked to Netflix and Pandora with no issues at all.

However, fast-forward to today when tried to use the computers (Mac and two laptop PCs) on the wireless connection. While the Blu-Ray player was on, the Mac and PCs would NOT connect, or even recognize, the wireless network.

When we turn off the Blu-Ray, the computers "magically" recognize and connect to the network.

We have never had any issues with simultaneous computers being on the network (we regularly have the computers plus an iPod connecting through it).

Has anyone else had a similar issue? If so, how did you resolve it?

My router is an older linksys on (WRT54g).

Samsung BD-P3600: Wireless Router Issues

Hi there,

I'm not sure if this will help but you may want to look at how many connections are being allowed by your wireless router

Hope this helps

I don't think that's the issue

We thought it could be, so we turned off one of the laptops and the iTouch. Still no luck.

very strange...

Never heard this before...
Something to maybe try...
Make sure of your router accesses all your ip range (example... TO --- You may need to start at instead of depending on your modem).

Make sure all your comps/iPods have their own IP (static), leave the player on auto, then shutdown everything, restart everything (router included)...starting with the modem, then router.

Found here - however no response to this one either

I have the BD P3600. I originally upgraded my LINKSYS WRT54g router to Belkin's Ultrarange N+ router because Belkin was touting its 2600 feet range. I hooked up to the wireless network easily. Everything was fine for about ONE week and I even watched a streaming Netflix movie. This connection was good for ONE week only. After that, the "Network Initializing" message kept showing up everytime I tried to hook up with my Samsung Blu-ray. Two of my laptops also could not connect wirelessly to the Internet. After several failed attempts at remedying, I returned the Belkin router and reused my Linksys WRT54g router. My laptops are both wirelessly functional now. I then reset the Blu-ray to factory settings by pressing the SKIP button for more than 5 seconds on the panel. However, my Samsung Blu-ray keeps saying "cannot find a shared PC". My Blu-ray is on the second floor but so is my laptop that wireless connects with "good signal" message. Please help me out.

What is your SSID broadcast setting?

I have a Lynksys router also (same model), is your SSID a short name with no spaces? Also, do you have the WPS being displayed on the menu screen on the left bottom of the screen after you factory reset and press Menu with no disc in? I do a factory reset by pressing the FF on the unit itseld until the LCD display reads RESET. Perhaps your dongle is hosed like mine was.

Do you see your SSID in the Access Point list?

Linksys Router - Samsung P3600

This maybe silly but it worked for me.... I kept getting error cannot find PC. First as stated in previous posts, you can only connect one computer at a time with Linksys unless you get a dual band router to stream more than 1 PC. 2nd what I did is to initial find my PC, I had to disable Windows Firewall, and I Norton. Had to disable that as well. Then it all worked fine! Hope this helps.

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?
