(firmware updated to 5.17).
I've been trying to connect the blu-ray player to the router via wireless - no way!
I just can't make it work and it drives me crazy.
1) The wireless network is correctly spotted by the player, but when I try to connect it and insert the password, it simply says connection failed.
2) Then I try the other way round, Push Button procedure, and connect the blu-ray player through the router interface on my pc, this time connection is successful but when I go back to the player and test the connection (leaving default parameters: dynamic ip, auto server name), once again connection error. I even tried giving the correct primary and alternative server names, and also a static ip (which I probably got wrong anyway), but I can't make it.
Does anybody know if it's more likely a router problem or an issue with the player instead?
Anybody connecting the same items?
Any suggestion is very welcome!
Check to make sure your router is using an encryption method that is also supported by the 390. (Don't use wireless on mine so don't know which it supports.) It would probably be safest to set the router to use WPA (as opposed to just WPA-2)
If that fixes your problem, you will probably also want to turn off Dynamic IP on the 390. There is a known issue between the BD390 and some D-Link routers where DNS Relay doesn't play nice between the two devices. The symptom of this is that even though you get a connection, streaming is VERY slow making Netflix or anything else unusable.
To solve this you should use fixed IP on your BD390. Assign a fixed IP address within the subnet range served by your router, use the router address as the gateway, but provide a REAL IP address for both the primary and secondary DNS addresses. This can be the real addresses used by your ISP DNS servers or those of an alternate DNS service such as OpenDNS. Either will work just as well.
