They actually told me that plugging and unplugging to find a network is the way the unit is supposed to work and it cannot keep on a network. Other than the connection, I like the unit, so I am hoping it is a defect. Besides one other post, I haven't been able to find any issues with networking with this unit, so maybe it is an isolated incident.
I am comming in a little late to the show, so if this has already been taken
1. In windows hit start, run, type cmd, a window will open. If you are running WIN7, after hitting start icon just start typing.
2. Type ipconfig/all, you will then get all the information you need to input network info manually. The IPV4 address is for your computer just change the last number. (192.168.10.105 computer, for BD use 192.168.10.106)
3. Your gateway, subnet and dns info will all be listed.
As for the tech telling you if you keep reconnecting your cable it should find network information, he is correct most home networks are setup for DHCP which allows your equipment to find network setting when you turn them on. The method I listed above will give you static setting that will not change.
I hope this helps, I monitor this site daily, if you have any questions let me know.
