I wonder though, has anyone gone from 1.01 straight to 2.19? Also, is there any problem if you ping the V867 from your computer?
Okay, one down one to go. My entertainment system is located in the "Family" room. My router and modem are in my office. I had previously run 2 Cat5s out of router LAN ports up the office wall across the attic and dropped one behind the rather heavy, and pain to move, 5 section wall unit and the other behind "my" stressless chair. Rather than going to the hassle of running another Cat5 I decided to use a very old (non-wireless) D-Link router as a switch thereby creating a sub-LAN2 which would give me 3 additional ports at the entertainment array. When doing this I had to manually assign this new LAN2 an IP Address 192.168.182.2 (this required turning off the DHCP in the V867. I realized that I had not pointed the Default Gateway to 192.168.182.1 and instead had directed it to 192.168.182.2.
After all of this I eliminated the new LAN2, enabled the DHCP in the 867 and plugged the original Cat5 into the 867. Presto! Unit Firmware updated--imagine that LOL.
I still have one spare port in my office which I'll have to fish another Cat5 up, across, and down to the entertainment wall. While doing all of this I realized that my data server was on LAN1 so what I was trying to do was just going to create another problem.
As it stands now I'll run another cable, use the wireless function on my Panasonic DMP-BDT210, and use the other two LAN1 connections for the new V867 and my Direct TV receiver.
Thanks for the input and at some point today I'll pose another question about my powered sub-woofer which doesn't want to cooperate with the 867.
