Really quite simple actually. you could call your ISP I bet they have them as well and will help you setup as well.
Should be simple, right? I went out today and bought a Lynsky network switcher, which Chris says will work here in NYC with the default DHCP settings on the player. Nope, does not pass connection test. Panasonic says router, not switcher, but had me re-enter my settings from my computer ipconfig. Re-enter those settings, pass the connection test, still fails to connect to internet for update (same message about unable to check at this time). I'm pretty much done. I've been on the phone all afternoon with Panansonic and they have no clue what to do.
At this point, I'm thinking about just returning the player and forgetting blu ray for now.
