Samsung c6500 Not connecting wirelessly with WPA

Nov 3rd, 2011 | By | Category: Technology

So I turned on the encryption here as it was off as that’s no good, I went into the blueray player and set the new encryption key and guess what happened next, NOTHING!  As per usual I got to spend an exorbitant amount of time fixing a problem that shouldn’t exist in the first place.  So first rule: don’t buy a Samsung blueray player!

But if you don’t have a choice here’s what you need to do to get it working:

Manually reserve IP Address for the Blu Ray Player
Make sure your SSID is 8 Characters or less
Make Sure your password was 8 characters or less
Manually set IP address and DNS in the Blu Ray setup

  • If your router IP is 192.168.1.1 then set your c6500 IP to 192.168.1.10 or 15 or something that isn’t taken
  • Set the gateway to 192.168.1.1(if that’s your router IP)
  • Set the netmask to 255.255.255.0
  • Set the DNS to 8.8.8.8

And there ya go!
