Are the router addresses assigned on the same subnet?
many routers have a base address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 meaning all addresses 192.168.0.? are part of their network.
One problem can be that both routers can be using the same subnet -- not an issue if they are connected to different connection points (such as two different houses) on the internet. However when connected to each other in your house they are confused because they have the same two different networks with the same addresses. -- for slightly different reasons --
For those that want you to connect from one router to the wan of the other you need to assure the base addresses are in different subnets -- assuming the one connected to the internet is addressed as 184.108.40.206 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 his network as stated before is all addresses 192.168.0.?. Change the second router to a base address of say 192.168.2.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 his network is everything staring 192.168.2.? they are now different and it should work. On the wan side of the router you can assign a unique 192.168.0.? address not in the DHCP range of the first router or accept a dynamic IP address from the first router. The dynamic address is probably the easier and less problematic of the solutions.
For those wanting you to connect to a lan port and ignore the wan port they should also have asked you to turn off DHCP in the second router (where you do not use the wan port) and allow the first to do all the dynamic network address assignments. In this case you could have two DHCP servers on the network competing to assign possibly the same network addresses -- if they have overlapping ranges duplicate addresses could be assigned resulting in device connection issues for those with duplicate addresses. Even in this case you may need to assure the gateway addresses are unique on the network ie of both routers are addressed as 192.168.0.1 the second where the WAN is not used could become 192.168.0.2 (where that address is not in the active DHCP server's assignment range) or 192.168.2.0 (note the DHCP server had better be off or else the empty wan port 192.168.2.0 could become the "gateway" address of attached PCs and since there is no connection there will be no access to the internet.
I hope this helps
It is quite likely either solution could work if all the proper changes were made.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try: 1. Check physical connections. a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet ?i? LED on the front of the router should light up. b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up. 2. Access the router's web-based utility. a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key. c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password". Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default. To reset the router: a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds. b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in. 3. Configure the router. Since your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below: a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab. b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?. c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button. 4. Configure the wireless settings. a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup. b. Change the SSID to any unique name. c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy). d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit". e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number. Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection. f. Click Apply button to save the changes. g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle. 5. Power cycle. a. Power off the modem, router and computers. b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking. c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online. If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below: 6. Connect wireless computer to the router. If you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 1, please follow the steps below: a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. b.

Check CNET Samsung forum. There are several posts with the same problem. A couple solutions and basic confirmation that Samsungs newest fireware is bad. I wish their support helpdesk would realize that instead of telling me to contact my router support.

I'm not familiar with that particular router, but all of them are about the same. You can go in and edit firewall settings to allow a particular IP address to have access. Don't disable the firewall completely, just set it to allow that I.P address to have full access.

Certain routers will not have a wps button on it...
You can go for the next options in your bluray...
You will have options to enter network key...(this is wireless network password)
Or you can configure using PIN number...(an 8 digit number printed at the bottom of wireless router)
But if u configured using wps or pin number, then the wireless settings on your router will get sync with bluray player... All your other wireless devices like laptops and iphones and gaming system will lose their connectivity to the wireless router...
so it is advisable to type the security password of your router in bluray player...
