Question about LG BD370 BLU RAY PLAYER

1 Answer

I have LG BD370, purchased a Netgear Wireless WNR2000 N-router, As recommended in the manual, I purchased a (Linksys Cisco Powerline AV Network kit model PLK300. That was connected w/ Cat 6 cables. Have not been able to connect w/ netflix. Tech support at LG says only solution is to connect with cable. That is not practical with computer in basement and TV and Blue Ray player upstairs. I also purchased the AN-WF100 Wi-Fi Dongle for the Blue Ray player. LG Tech support says that won't work with the machine. Any recommendations? Just toss the whole mess in the trash?

Get a Wireless Access Point ($30-$50 average). A wire from WAP to the Blu-Ray player should work like a charm. The WAP pretty much takes your wireless connection and transforms it back to a wired Ethernet connection for devices like this. You can have your Wireless Router on one side of your house and the WAP on the other, right next to your blu-ray player with a short Ethernet connection between the two. The player will just see it as a standard Ethernet connection.

Why did the router ID change when I linked it via the Wps button to the DSTV wifi gadget ?


Here's and excerpt from the Netgear WNR2000 user manual explaining that this is normal behavior for Netgear routers that support WPS..:
  • Keep Existing Wireless Settings. This check box is automatically selected after WPS is enabled to prevent unwanted settings changes, and is also selected if you have already specified wireless security settings or your SSID without using WPS. When this check box is not selected, adding a new wireless client using the push button or the Add WPS Client screen (see "Push Button Configuration" on page 2-14) changes the router's SSID and security passphrase. You might need to clear it if you are using certain registrars, such as for a Windows Vista PC, to configure the router through WPS.
Even if your router is not a WNR2000, it is likely that the configuration interface pretty much the same so you might be helped by looking at Chapter 2 page 17 in the WNR2000 manual here..:
Or else, go to Netgear support (NETGEAR Support Welcome), select Wi-Fi routers and download/display the user manual pdf and search it for "disable router's pin" or "keep existing wireless settings" and verify/change the setting so the router doesn't make changes when you use the WPS button.

How do I restore my router to the factory setting? I have no Wi-Fi service.


Restoring the Default Configuration and Password
  • Use the restore factory settings button on the rear panel of the router. Use this method for cases when the administration password or IP address is not known.
  • This is how to restore the factory default configuration settings that reset the router's user name to admin, the password to password, and the IP address to 192.168.1.1.
  • To use the restore settings button:
    1. Locate the restore factory settings button on the rear panel of the router.

    2. Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings button for about 5 seconds, until the Power light begins to blink.

    3. Release the restore factory settings button, and wait for the router to restart, and for the Power light to stop blinking and become solid green.

    4. The factory default settings will be restored so that you can access the router from your Web browser using the factory defaults.

      Then you can go through the setup procedures to setup your wireless

    How do aye get my network securty key


    Find your router user manual. Find the information that will let you log into your router settings. Once logged into the router settings, you will look for a page like "wireless settings" or wireless security". Your network security key will be on that page. A lot of routers user different language. The user manual can help you here too.

    I have just bought Belkin Powerline AV starter kit. I have a Belkin N1 Wireless Modem Router connected through a Carrier PoE adapter. I have tried to connect my Sony TV and PS3 through the powerline units...


    Try reset the device and start a new configuration.It seems that your networwork have issues between the router and the powerlines.All need to be in the same network as per router configuration.Connect one adapter to your router and plug it into an available electrical outlet. Plug the second adpter into an available wall outlet and connect the other end to any device with an available Ethernet port such as a gaming console, set-top box, or computer.

    pd: OS to use the adapters; Windows 2000, XP or Vista.

    I am trying to set up the router for my LG bd 370 so I can stream netflix. My network is wireless so I do not remember how to integrate or install! I have a netgear RP114 that I am trying to use.


    I have the same BD player. I have a linksys WRT610N router and i use a D-Link DAP 1522 wireless bridge to connect the LG player on my N network. The Bridge works great. If you want to stream in HD you most definitely want to have an N network to handle the needed bandwidth. also YouTube streams wonderfully also.

    Dose cisco aironet 1100 support routing


    You must use a router to perform NATing to the ISP. Simply use a Netgear or Linksys router and plug your access point into it. You can even use a Netgear or Linksys wireless router with the ethernet ports built into it. Just disable the onboard wireless.
