As soon as I connect the TV to one of the switches on the back of the wireless modem, the apps work, but they lock up.
Does anyone know if there is a setting that I need to change in the linksys g wireless router to better communicate with the TV?
Honestly loving the TV since Sept...if I can get the Vieracast to work without switching cables it will be perfect.
Thanks for the help!
I remember your post, you fixed the original problem by setting up a new Pandora account which is what an owner of a Panasonic BD85 had to do as well.
More info would be helpful. Which Linksys router do you have, WRT54GL? It would be best if you let us know what your router settings are, rather than us guessing what setting could be creating an issue. Maybe you could do a printscreen of each page from the management interface and post the gifs/jpgs here?
That said, I assume the basic router and TV LAN settings are OK ...
Do all the Vieracast apps eventually "freeze"? What is the nature of the freeze, does the TV lock up, application lock up, or does it just appear like the connection has been lost?
Have you checked the router's management interface for any odd settings (e.g. access restrictions turned on, QOS setting giving your TV low priority, etc.)? Tried toggling power on the router? Is someone else in the house engaging in heavy internet usage? Do other devices (e.g. a PC) work OK off a wired port?
