Hi there, I have a samsung BD-J5100 Blu-ray DVD player. I am trying to connect on my wifi wireless internet, and I can’t. I contact video, and mention me that I need an adapter for plugging my samsung DVD on the web. What is an adapter? And is there another way to connected on my wifi? Any help much appreciations. Happy new year!
There may be more than one version of this player. I see it advertised as having wifi but the product manual on the Samsung website says it must be wired to the network. If the box says wifi and it doesn't have it. I would return it. The hardware to connect it with wifi could cost more than the player. I would put my money into a better player instead.
I researched Blu-ray players about a year ago. The Sony BDP-S3700 was generally regarded as the best low cost player at the time. It's priced at about $99. This may have been superseded by the BDP-S6700.
I also did some research on this model of samsung blue ray player. it IS wifi capable, but you NEEEEEED to plug in a samsung wireless usb dongle into the front usb port to be able to connect to a wifi network, I do not own this model so I could not tell u if it is suppose to come with this usb dongle or do you have to buy it separately? here is the link
In all honestly, its easier to buy a model with wifi included, or just plug in a ether net cable, problem solved.
It says wifi capability. And on the box it says wireless.
FWIW, I re-scanned the Quick Guide and the User Manual - both of which are available here - and neither of them says anything about "wi-fi" or "wireless". However, both of them have instructions on how to connect to your network using an ethernet cable.
If you can return the Samsung, you may want to consider getting a Sony BDP-S3700 (which has dual-band wireless connectivity). I have one and find that it works very well for things like BDs/DVDs, Netflix and pulling content off a NAS.
When i plug the DVD player into my tv, and go to setting there is a connect section for wifi wireless. There is a ton of video on YouTube but none of the helps. I will stick to my plan, buy a roku express. Thank you all.
cool, so try to open the wifi settings and see if it can detect wifi networks, if it does not or gives you some kind of error, then it probably is missing the hardware and you need to buy it separately. otherwise, if u have an internet cable, plug one end into the lan port of your modem and the other end into your blue ray player and voila, it will have internet connectivity.
