My Belkin Play N600 won't connect to my Blu Ray player????
Why is Everybody talking about changing the SSID and password? There is no need for that. That is such a wast of time. But yes, if taking the action restoring the router with a hard reset yes you can configure the SSID and password of your choice. But if you are aware of your WiFi SSID and password (and I'm sure you do) then it is not necessary. As for this WiFi complication, you have to consider how your WIFi home network is set up. First off, WiFi is similar to a cordless phone connection. Farther you are away from the receiver the weaker the connection will get.. And just like a cordless phone connection, WiFi uses the same radio frequency 2.4GHz. connection. Also, devices such as Blue Ray, PS3, PS4, and X Box 360, require configuring the port forward settings to enable full features as to what the device can offer. Reason for this, your ISP disables certain ports due to security measures and vulnerability upon home network use. No need to worry about security issues because when dealing with these devices which require extra open ports, we configure that device only to have the access of those needed ports. Other than that, will also consider how many networks reside within your area with how many neighbors have there own home 2.4GHz home networks. Reason for that being is due to the 2.4GHz limited amount of channel frequencies which is only 11 channels. Your routers 2.4GHz radio wave will occupy 1 out of any of those 11 channels Fq Cyz and because of this there can be various amounts of other 2.4Ghz networks using the same channel which causes wifi connection problems for all networks smothering one another within the same channel. Due to that fact, the 5GHz Wifi Connection has been introduced but the disadvantage to that connection is how limited the distance you have to be as well how most devices are not compatible with the 5Ghz connection which does not detect the signal. So by fact, WiFi is a very vulnerable connection. The only connection that is reliable is ethernet (Direct connect).
As for your Blue ray not connecting, make sure that blue ray can detect the SSID your home network is broadcasting. Also consider how far the router is from your BR. If you see your ssid within the settings while you are attempting to connect to WIFI, it should display a signal and if it shows weak, you may have to make a couple of adjustments as to move your router or blue ray closer to one another or consider a repeater to enhance the WiFi connection within your home. If you need a tech to help please call tech support with your ISP.
