So when im done watching a movie via netflix streaming I then enable the routers firewall, I really don't know what else to do.
The hardware router itself should not be an issue as far as internal information flow is concerned, except that it needs to have uPnP turned on. The Netflix traffic should be OK, since it starts with a request from inside the firewall. Most router firewalls are MUCH more concerned with traffic originating from the outside.
With the hardware firewall in place you can turn off the Windows firewall completely and then set the AVG firewall to allow the local traffic, which is, I think, uPnP and Windows filesharing.
Having said that, however, I'll admit that there seems to be problems with the BD-P3600's detection of Windows computers, so the whole router/firewall issue might be a red herring. The Samsung firmware seems to have problems. Rushed out the door?
