streaming Netflix wireless to Samsung BD-P3600

by jabaumann / December 27, 2009 9:33 AM PST

Okay. Got the Samsung BD-P3600 for the holidays (yippee) and have the Netflix account going. It works flawlessly streaming to my laptop. But when I tried to stream Netflix to the BD player, I got a message that said the Internet speed was too slow and the performance backed that up as it took ages to load and would only play for 30-45 seconds before needing to buffer again.

Suggestions?

Same problem

I am having the same problem streaming Nextflix to my Samsung BD-P3600. The error message I got suggested that I did not have enough bandwidth. Is that a function of the wireless router I am using (G router) or the bandwidth my Comcast provider is giving me.

Would I have better success running cat 5 from the router to the BD-p3600 and forgetting wireless altoghter.

Wired or wireless

Wired or wireless shouldn?t matter, as long as you have a good signal at the player. I would expect it is a product of the bandwidth you are receiving from Comcast. Your router is likely providing local network speeds 10 to 100 times faster than your service provider is offering you.

Try a speed test from your computer to see what kind of bandwidth you have available to you for internet access.

Directly from Netflix
?To watch movies instantly via your PC or Netflix Ready device, we recommend a broadband connection providing at least 1.5 Mbps. The faster your connection, the better the quality. For DVD quality video and audio, you need a connection providing at least 3.0 Mbps.?

I have a very fast connection exceeding 10Mbps on average and I still seem to have Netflix hang or drop from time to time. I suspect it may have to do with the congestion on the network and specifically on Netflix.

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?
