Connecting to your Home Network
This player can be connected to a local area network (LAN) via the LAN port on the rear panel. By connecting the unit to a broadband home network, you have access to services such as software updates, BD-LIVE interactivity and on-line content services.
Wired network connection
Using a wired network provides the best performance, because the attached devices connect directly to the network and are not subject to radio frequency interference. Please refer to the documentation for your network device for further instructions. Connect the player’s LAN port to the corresponding port on your Modem or Router using a commercially available LAN or Ethernet cable.
Note:
When plugging or unplugging the LAN cable, hold the plug portion of the cable. When unplugging, do not pull on the LAN cable but unplug while pressing down on the lock. Do not connect a modular phone cable to the LAN port. Since there are various connection configurations, please follow the specifications of your telecommunication carrier or internet service provider. If you want to access content from PCs or DLNA servers, this player must be connected to the same local area network with them via a router.
Wired Network Setup
If there is a DHCP server on the local area network (LAN) via wired connection, this player will automatically be allocated an IP address. After making the physical connection, a small number of home networks may require the player’s network setting to be adjusted. Adjust the [NETWORK] setting as follow.
Preparation
Before setting the wired network, you need to connect the broadband internet to your home network.
1. Select [Connection Setting] option in the [Setup] menu then press ENTER .
2. The [Connection Setting] menu appear on the screen. Use UP/DOWN to select the [Wired] and press ENTER
3. Use UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT to select the IP mode between [Dynamic] and [Static]. Normally, select [Dynamic] to allocate an IP address automatically.
Note:
If there is no DHCP server on the network and you want to set the IP address manually, select [Static] then set [IP Address], [Subnet Mask], [Gateway] and [DNS Server] using UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT and numerical buttons. If you make a mistake while entering a number, press CLEAR to clear the highlighted part.
4. Select [OK] and press ENTER  to apply network settings.
5. The player will ask you to test the network connection. Select [OK] and press ENTER  to complete the network connection.
6. If you select [Test] and press ENTER  at step 5 above, the network connection status is displayed on the screen.
You can also test it on the [Connection Status] in the [Setup] menu.
