BDP-3600 Wireless Connectivity Issue Solved
I too had numerous problems getting my Samsung BDP-3600 BlueRay Disc Player to log into my NetGear WNR-2000 wireless router. Creating static settings for IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway Server did not solve the problem. After numerous tech support calls to both the router manufacturer and Samsung, here's what I discovered that solved my problem:
1. Multiple firewalls running at the same time conflict with operation of the BDP-3600. If you use security software such as Norton or MacAfee, you are already thoroughly protected and do not need to use the firewall on your router. Turn it off.
2. According to Samsung, it is mandatory that router ports 443 and 80 be open in order for the BDP-3600 to be able to communicate with the router. Manually configure these two ports in your router setup so they remain open.
3. Set the BDP-3600 to log in automatically by removing ALL static addresses from the wireless setup screen. IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway Server, and DNS should all be "0.0.0.0". Changing DHCP to "off" will allow you to change the settings for IP, Subnet, Gateway, and DNS. Once you have restored all the values to zeros, make sure to set DHCP back to "On". DNS needs to be set to "Auto", but this happens automatically when you set DHCP to "on".
Once you have made these settings, assuming that you have chosen the correct wireless network and entered the proper security key, go to Network Connectivity Test to check for proper login to your router. It should pass all 4 tests. If you are still having problems, contact Samsung Tech support at (800) 726-7864.
Hope this helps those of you who are having problems!
