Took the plunge and got a 3600 for Christmas for the family. Hooked up just fine, said firmware update available, afer 30 plus minutes of DSL superfast download update of firmware. Got NetFlix and Blockbuster screen along with Pandora and You Tube, but now get an a screen that say's can not find network. Not done anything different other than download firmware. Don't know what to do now or what's next. I'm not a tech geek, so any help greatly appreciated. I'm over 2 hours away from Best Buy where I bought it just before Christmas 2009. I'm using a Linksy router as well. My other wireless networks are ok, no problems.
I got a Samsung BDP-1600 for Christmas so I could stream Netflix movies over my ethernet connection. When I tried to access the streaming, Netflix gave me a message that said "Cannot connect to your home network" and that I should confirm that my router is on by attempting to connect to the internet.
I have AT&T FastAccess DSL and the connection bypasses a modem and router by fiber-optically running ethernet cable from the wall to my computer's ethernet port.
To connect to BD-P1600, I bought a Linksys 10/100 5-Port Workgroup Switch. I patched the computer, the wall and the Samsung Blu-Ray to the Switch.
I can access the internet fine. The Blu-Ray can't connect, though.
I've tried disabling my computer's firewall, tried patching the cable from the player to the wall directly, everything.
I Googled my problem but couldn't find anyone who had the same dilemma with connecting to Netflix fiber-optically.
Since I don't use a router, what should I do? Is there anyone who connects using this method?
