I replaced my Panasonic DMP-BD65 blu-ray player with a Panasonic DMP-BDT210 blu-ray player. The new one has wifi built in, and I'm trying to connect to Netflix, but I am stuck at a problem. I connects to the Linksys Wireless-G 2.4 router ok. The error message I get is "Cannot find the server (Error code B019)". Then it says to check the following: "Primary DNS" and "Secondary DNS" settings of "IP Address/DNS Settings" (See page 32).

All it says on page 32 about this subject is: IP Address/DNS Settings. This is for checking the state of the network connection and setting the IP address and DNS-related.

The instructions doesn't say how to fix the problem and a search on internet is useless.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Try changing the DNS on your router to a google DNS, not your IP


Fronts/Wides:M22s in/on
Center:VP150/VP100 in/on
Hghts,SS,SR:QS8s
Sub:EP500
AVR:Onkyo 3008

Take 1 step forward and 3 steps backward. That's where I'm at now.

I lost the use of my router. I couldn't find the password for it since it's been about 2 years since I've seen it, so I reset the router to factory defaults. All was fine for a while then my internet connection stopped working. The main reason for the router before was firewall protection.

When I remove the router, I can connect to the internet, like right now. If I put it back in the line, then, no internet connection. I don't remember having this much trouble before. I'm stumped, because AT&T won't help with the router. They just insure that I have access to the internet, which I have without the router.

Also with the router connected, I can't access the modem via 192.168.1.254

The router is set to Gateway. I think all it has to do is communicate with the modem, and the modem takes care of the internet communications. Is this correct?

I've tried a lot of different combinations, but I still can't get the router to communication with the modem. What am I doing wrong?

I've decided to buy a new N router today to replace my G router. Maybe it's a bad router. I think that N should also be faster.

Hi Cat,

For what it's worth, I purchased a new Netgear N600 wireless dual-band router based on user ease-of-setup comments I found online. It's capable of HD streaming and works at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz simultaneously.

I was able to set it up and get it working without calling technical assistance, using the supplied Netgear setup disc.) It's worked very well, and recovers its settings if you unplug it then plug it back in, which I did when I was away up at Axiom recently.

Regards,
Alan

I paid about $70 for this router on sale at Staples.

I think I'll buy this one. It has good reviews. I don't want to wait, so I'll probably get it from Best Buy today. It looks like their price is right around $90.

Thanks.

Ok. Got the N600 at BB today for $80. And a copy of The Kings Speach for $20 while I was at it. But I've got to wait until 5:00pm tonight before I can try it out.

Is that when the Cats go out and leave you the house?

No, that's when the boss says I can go home.
