Re: ip address on my computer?

Try this :
Go to Start -> Run -> Type 'cmd' (without the quotes)
In the command prompt window - type - ipconfig
If you do not see any ip address like "169.254....."
Type ipconfig /release (hit enter)
Type ipconfig /renew (hit enter)
Type ping
See what response do you get. If this says Sent = 4 ; Received = 4,
Go to IE and try opening a webpage.
If this says, Sent = 4 ; Received = 0
Tell me what ISP do you have?
How are you connected?
Have you ever been able to connect to this network before?
Do let me know what happens...

Thanks & Good Luck

My blue ray player suddenly cannot connect to any applications -- connection status cannot be confirmed.error code 300 - I checked all internet connections for wireless and using WPA says all internet and...

If you have a Sony device, the problem is completely on Sony's end (Feb 24 2015). A so-called "provisioning server" that Sony requires your device to use was down (whether by hackers or technical error), thus preventing your device from working. Very poor design! An error message clarifying that the problem was "Unable to reach the Sony server" would have saved me and many others hours of time trying in vain to fix a non-existent problem on my end. And worse is that this server only helps Sony capture details of your usage (forget your privacy!). They could easily have designed the device to connect directly (and much faster) to Netflix or wherever without snooping, or at least even if the Sony provisioning server were down. This probably also explains why it often takes so much time to connect to Netflix compared to when I use my PC. This is the last Sony Internet device I'll buy! And I'll check reviews to make sure whatever device I buy isn't hobbled by a similar poor design.

How to change IP address, my player will not allow me to change it so it can access my wireless internet.

Hotspot Shield free VPN is the best solution to Hide IP Address. It is available for Windows, Mac, iPhone and Android. Also it is very easy to install and use.

Can't connect my blu=ray dvd to my wireless internet

Please clarify your model number. If you have the DMP-BD60, it only has wired networking capabilities. A USB wi-fi dongle will not work (the USB port is only for storage devices). If you are connecting it to a wired port on a wireless bridge (switch) or directly to your wireless router and having trouble with the connection, check your cables and that your network is up. Next check that you have not restricted the number of devices allowed to connect to the router. There are ways to limit the number of IP addresses in the router setup. If you allowed 4 addresses and the blu-ray player will be number 5, you need to adjust the settings for your router.

Please add a comment with the model number if you are using a different blu-ray player. I hope this helps.

Network Test stuck on Obtaining IP address...

If you are trying to connect via wifi then this is usually caused by the security key not matching. If you post your make and model of wireless router in the comments I can tell you how to find your security key. If you are connecting by a cable then try restarting your router by removing the power cable for at least 60 seconds, then power it back on and wait for all the lights to come back on as normal before trying again.

I have a Vizio VBR120 Blu-ray player and it won't connect to my internet using my NETGEAR WNR2000v3 Router. I have tried using an ethernet cable from router to the blu-ray player. I will not find an IP...

The default IP mode is set to Dynamic, which means your player will automatically detect and use
your network settings after you connect your Ethernet cable, but you can manually change these
settings if you are an advanced user and are comfortable with networks.
1. Turn on your player and your TV. If a DVD is not in the disc tray, the Home menu will be
displayed. If a DVD is in the disc tray, press SETUP to display the Home menu.
2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable (not included) to the Ethernet port on your player
3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to your home network (usually your router
home network must have broadband Internet access such as cable or DSL.
4. Press to select Settings, and then press SELECT.
5. Press to select Network, and then press SELECT.
6. Press ^ or down to select Wired and then press SELECT.
7. Press to change IP Mode to Manual and then press SELECT.
8. Manually change your network settings such as IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default
Gateway, the Primary DNS, and Secondary DNS.
9. Press ^ or down to select Apply and then press SELECT.
Note: If you need additional help setting up your network, please refer to the user manual for your
router or contact the manufacturer of either your router or your Internet service provider if they
provided the router for you.

Your ip settings will look something like this

You might be able to find you setting by going to Network Connections -> 2x click on Local Area Connection -> then click on the support tab.

Can you ping the recorder from your computer on the network? In Windows, Start > All Programs > Accesssories > Command Prompt. At the prompt, type ping and the IP address of the recorder from the Start menu, Settings > Settings > System Information page. Press Enter after typing all 4 sections of the IP address. If you can't ping the recorder, I'd look for bad cables and connection issues with your router or modem (broadband or dial-up). Depending on your devices, you may be able to find a log file of the downtime.

Remember the guide takes a while to download, so if you are losing connectivity that could cause the failure. If you have your recorder, router and modem on an uninterruptible power supply, double check that they are plugged into the battery protected outlets and that the battery has sufficient charge to maintain the devices. Older UPS batteries will not keep a system running. Also check if your provider has been having downtime issues.

Check your Microsoft Program Guide subscription status.

I hope this helps.

(Upstream downtime issues have sometimes been a problem for me. I have created a batch file to check if my router, DSL hub (the point where my local loop connects to the ISP's network), DNS servers and regularly accessed sites are available. This started as a text file then I did a file save as "pingisp.bat" (with the quotes). The text file has several lines: each starts with ping and either the IP numbers for each device (or location) or address of a site. The browsing to the router status page gave me most of the IP numbers I needed. Any site that is not connecting gives a site unreachable message for several attempts. Working sites report how long it took for the packet to return.)

TV guide will not download, failed

My mother and sister both have the same problem. One unit is using wireless connection with a dlink adaptor which worked for a couple of years. The other has a direct connection over ethernet. Two separate homes and cable providers btw.
I think the problem is linked with the Zap2it website. The last successful download date was July 4th 2am EST 2010.
After calling LG they said many people were facing the same problem. They say the solution is to rerun the guide setup wizard. You will loose all your cable / remote control settings if you try this.
If you want to just check on your internet connection. Run 'Menu' -> 'Settings' -> Phone & Internet connection' then verify if you get an ip address with 'Menu' -> 'Settings' -> 'System Information'. Your ip address should not be all I think it cant connect as the DNS server isn't listed so there isn't anyway the unit can resolve the Zap2it address.
