Fixed IP Address

I swapped ethernet cables with our Xbox and get internet connection there so it is not that the router or cable are bad.
The only thing that has changed fairly recently is I got set up through openDNS for internet content filtering. I input their DNS settings into my router. I thought maybe I had to turn Auto DNS config off in the BD80 and put those DNS settings in, but that didn't work either.
Any thoughts on what might be the problem?
Try giving it a Fixed IP address (similar to how you would setup a printer).
I had the same problems (with it no being able to obtain a Dynamic IP address from router). Since I switched BD-60 and plasma TV to Fixed IPs ... no more problems.
