Viera cast network connection problem

I have tried all the IP & DNS numbers I can pull from my 2Wire 1800HG unit & still can't get a connection. I have the TH-P42G10 plasma screen & the DMR-BS850, which is what I am trying to connect through, via a 5M long high speed ethernet cable.Any help kindly welcomed.

SOURCE: Connection problems with Panasonic Viera Cast

I have had the same problem with my Panny DMR-BS850 which was resolved by changing the ethernet cable I was using which had only 4 contacts on each plug end for one which has 8 contacts. I tried all variations & combinations of IP & DNS before buying the new cable from my local pc store (£10 for 10m cable) and was relieved when setting the system to auto connect it worked within 3 mins. I think the slight delay was the router setting up a new address for the new hardware it detected.
My new cable states on it "Verified For Gigabit Ethernet" and is Cat 5e rated and I was assured that it will carry data for runs up to 95m long, which is contrary to the Panasonic support agent who told me to shorten my initial 5m cable to prevent signal degradation.

Give it a try.. it might just work.

I have installed a bridge on my network, but when I try to configure Viera Cast I keep getting the message "invalid DNS address, check your settings"


where is the solution??? The sideline said there was one!! I have the same problem and FixYa seems to be useless with this particular problem. Spent half a day fighting my TV setting, but no luck. Panasonic should specify what kind of devices can be used to connect their TV's to network: whether you can only use it with a wired connection going straight to your router, so you get DHCP/DNS resolved, or some other means. You definitely can't use wireless Access Point to get the Viera Cast to work. I tried bunch of modes and settings on my Access Point (Trendnet, both router and AP), but get the same error "DNS name not valid". What in the world!!! I get connection to my router, my DHCP is enabled, connection in Network Settings checks OK, but VIera Cast still gives me that DNS error. What gives??? Anyone smart enough around here to figure this one out? I tried both automatic and manual network detection, with the same results, even tried connecting another router to AP, which got connection right away, and thought I could full Viera Cast that way. No luck! What a useless option in a TV, when it doesn't work! FAQ on Panasonic's site are not helpful with this issue, either. No straight answer on the Net, either. HELP SOMEBODY!

How to connect to XboxLive via 1800HG 2WIRE+Linksys adaptor?


The easiest way to connect to Xbox Live without using your pc is to buy a
wireless network adapter for your Xbox.

You would then go into the system settings on the Xbox and configure the settings for your wireless network.

Ipod touch 2nd gen


Can you please tell us more specifically what the main problem is? To my understanding, it is a wireless connectivity problem with your iPod Touch. It's just a simple to check. Go to Wireless Network Settings or Wi-Fi settings of your iPod. Make sure it can see or detect the signal from your 2Wire. You'll just need to manually connect to it and enternet WEP key or Network key which you can find at the bottom or side of your 2Wire modem. That's the 10-digit code. If you have it entered, check the TCP/IP settings of your iPod, make sure the IP Address is set to Automatic or DHCP as well as the DNS Servers. That should fix it.

Using 2wire 1800hg Home Portal. Have successfully connected with PC Port Adaptors using the existing telephone line. No problems. Then purchased a laptop w/ Vista installed. 2wire setup CD causes error...


Listen, you do not need that CD! This is already configured. That cd is for other types of troublesome operating systems that just cannot seem to get is DNS settings right such as windows XP. The cd is for XP only you do not need this with vista.


Thanks

Check your router or the modem's settings. I had the same problem but when I tweaked with the modem, it worked.

Replaced my old 2wire 1800HG with a new one and can't connect it


hi!
first of all, let's try to make the broadband link light turn green. open any browser, go the modem's UI by typing gateway.2wire.net or homeportal/setup on the address bar, follow the onscreen instructions on running the system setup wizard. it should make the broadband link green now. for wireless connection, click on the airport icon, and select on the SSID or network name in the drop down menu. if ssid is not on the drop down menu, click on other. type the SSID in the network name field and wireless security is none. (SSID is the last 3 nos. of the SN)

2wire 1800hg random no internet/random access, repair/wait fixes


It seems that you said your computer gets the ip address from your router,, which means thru DHCP of the router but if you look at the DHCP settings of your wireless card inside your computer ---the DHCP is OFF -- check your ipconfig/all command as shown in your problem too,,, your wless card does not accept the new IP which comes from your router --as DHCP is OFF on your wless card and sticks with the old ip address whereas the router maintains a new ip for your computer in its table and a mismatch occurs and you loose the internet connection ,,,,thats why repair works and then again the IP changes in the router for your computer and your computer's wless card lags behind and use the old ip adress ..... DHCP--- IS DYNAMIC , WHICH MEANS IT RENEWS THE IP address after some time and you computer gets stuck to the old one ,,, hence mismatch. "you make the DHCP -ON on your wless card too. it will be fine."
