Hope someone can help me here. Just got a LG BD390 bluray. Hooked it up and am having trouble getting it connected to the internet and my network. I am using the wireless setting because have no router near it. Have a Belkin N1 router. It sees my network and I enter my wep key. It then gives me option of dynamic or static IP. Now a while back a Verizon tech worked on an issue and gave me a static IP. I pulled that IP from my network setting page under tcp/ip settings.Also got the gateway and dns from that page. Enter the info into setup page and cant connect. I know it is not the player since i was able to connect to an unsecured network it picked up and downloaded the frimware update. Basically I need the IP, gateway and primary and secondary DNS . I tried using the same addresses from my direct tv dvr since that is networked but it failed and gave me an ip address conflict. Any help is appreciated.

You cant use the same IP address, but all the other info should be the same.

Let's say your D* receiver is

Try using another address close to this address you know is not in use, say, only change the last octet. Use the identical gateway, and dns settings from any of your other networked devices, they should all be the same.

well made it a digit off from all my other laptops and the dvr and it worked. Still have an issue playing files using playon so may try the nero home media that came with bluray player. I like playon too but it wont play a lot of my files.
