Would anyone be able to tell me how to connect my Sony Bravia TV, through a Thomson router modem Ethernet port. it is a model N# ST790 Thomson.
I have connected the cable to the TV and router's ethernet ports
when I go to home on my TV ,The TV tells me that"servers cannot be recognised .Check the connections ,then press options and select update list."
However, when I follow these instructions from the TV. NOTHING HAPPENS.
i think that the Thomson router must be blocking me some how.

Connect your wireless modem router Sign on to AOL. Download the AOL Easy Installer for Thomson 576 Wireless Modem Router. When prompted to save the file to a location select an appropriate place (desktop is a good example). Once the AOL Easy Installer is downloaded, double click the file: ST_V1.exe This will launch the modem router installer and show the "Welcome" screen. Click the Start Installation button to continue. If you wish to cancel, click the Cancel Installation button. Read the next page carefully. The text advises to close any running programs, ensure to close your AOL software also. Click Next to continue. Please Note: Connect a DSL filter to each telephone socket that is in use for telephones, dial-up modems and fax machines, etc. If you require additional DSL filters, order online at AOL Keyword Broadband Extras. Notes: Ensure to use AOL 8.0 or above. The AOL account to be used for the modem router set up must be a General (18+) account. This installer is not supported with a modem router containing beta firmware.

SOURCE: ethernet vs. usb

FYI for those people trying to use a ethernet and usb cable from a cable modem - it may work for a while but it won't work forever - your ISP will only allow one IP address out of the modem unless you pay for additional addresses (then you need a switch). Each device you have on the modem is fighting for that IP and eventually it will just quit working (if it works at all).

If you want more than one computer on your network (on the Internet or sharing printers/files, etc) then you need a router or a gateway (cable modem/router combo which I DON'T recommend).

SOURCE: DHG535-2 and LAN switch issue

It sounds like the LInksys that they replaced was also a router. A router will route packets to multiple pc's that are connected to it. The cable modem just sees the router as 1 pc. When you use a switch, the cable modem will see all of your PC's. and Comcast just allows 1 pc. You will need to buy a router to use more than 1 PC which will be cheaper than using Comcasts Home Networking service which will network up to 4 pcs

I have Sony Bravia KDL-46HX800 3D TV. My Ethernet connection stopped working. I can't get IP, my Sony blueray player doesn't have such problem (it is connected to the same net. switch). TV say

use a straight thru to connect directly to the router. Cross overs are typically used when connecting PC's directly together or daisy chaning routers or switches. Try a different port on the switch? Also from a pc, go to the DOS prompt and try and ping your TV. If your TV IP settings are all correct, and your network equipment is working, your should get a response from pinging your TV. If you don't, I would suspect a problem with your TV Enet port.

We have KDL-55EX711 Bravia and want to connect to the Internet. Shaw has given us a wireless modem but we can't connect. Help please!

I too just bought the KDL-55EX711 Sony Bravia and have connected it to the internet. This TV is awesome! To connect to the internet, however, you still need a wireless access point or wireless router to have that the TV can communicate with.

The TV comes with a wireless USB ethernet card "dongle" that you must plug into the USB slot on the side. After connecting the USB wireless card to the TV, connecting to the internet is just like connecting a laptop to a wireless network. You must go to the network settings menu on the TV follow the instructions there to get connected. In a nutshell, the TV will list the available networks to connect to. Find yours and try to connect to it. If your network is secured, you might need to enter a password that you have already set up for your wireless network. Finally you can either enter have the TV ask for an IP address and other settings or enter them yourself. You should not try to enter the IP address and other values yourself unless you know what you are doing.

Check if you have your firewall on, in your computer. If the computer connected through wireless can get online fine, then that only means Thompson modem/router is online too.

I just bought a Sony Bravia TV and am trying to connect it to the internet via my WPN824v2 LAN - it's not working and the LAN lights never light up on my router. Wireless connections are fine - even new...

I spent the last day trying to solve this, what worked was:

Refresh Internet Content
Wait (a while) until it Authenticates

Normal Internet service resumed :-)

PS3 and thompson ST585v6

So the WLAN is red, it means that there's no wireless connection from your router.

I might advise you to reconfigure the RCA on the wireless settings.

for the PS 3 there are port that you can gather with your PS 3 manufacturer to open on the router, it might help the PS 3 to go online simultaneously.
