I purchased the Samsung BD-C6500, and have attempted to connect wirelessly, called Samsung's Support and spoke with them for almost an hour, and they assured me that it is the router's firewall that is not letting me connect. The blu-ray allows me to 'physically connect,' but that's it. Once the MAC is approved, the "IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, DNS Server" will always fail. I'm using a Linksys WRT54G wireless router, and it is setup with a WEP password protection. I even went back into the router to see if by allowing other devices to be setup wirelessly would work, but still nothing. In the past I tried setting up the router to WPA, but the laptop wouldn't connect wirelessly, so I had to change it over to WEP. I don't know how to disable the firewall on the router (I've been trying to access it through Linksys - EasyLink Advisor) but no luck. I'm not sure if disabling the firewall will also disable the password protecton, but I do know that I don't want to keep that security, thus not allowing anyone (including neighbors) to use it.
I figured it might be a firmware issue, so I also attempted to download the updated .ruf file of the firmware on the Samsung website. I followed the pdf instructions, but it didn't work. I loaded the .ruf file (64 mb) onto the USB, and put it into the blu-ray player, which it recognized the USB, but that's it. It acted like it was just additional storage, and didn't upload the file. I tried putting the USB into the player when it read "No Disk," which it recognized it, and tried turning the player off then putting the USB in, which didn't recognize it by automatically turning on.
If it is just disabling the Linksys router firewall, how do I do it?
