Creating Network Bridge Between PC And Blu-ray Player Via LAN Connection?
Mar 10, 2011
I am having trouble creating a network bridge between my PC and Blu Ray player via LAN connection. I have done it before, but always run in to problems. I took my computer on vacation and messed up the existing connection and settings. Last time I successfully created the connection, I stumbled upon the answer, but can't remember how I fixed it. I should say that I can create the bridge, but once I do, the wireless internet connection no longer works, and my blu ray player can't connect to the internet either. I have forced compatibility mode on the wireless network via DOS, but no luck. I did the same on the LAN connection just for the heck of it. Still no luck.
I'm experimenting/attempting to use a laptop as a network tap between my (DSL) modem and a wrt54gs by creating a bridge with two NICs in the laptop. My problem is I can't seem to get connectivity on the user end of the router. I can't ping the bridge from an end computer...
DHCP is disabled in the router, but even when manually configuring the IP address on an end computer and using the bridge as a default gateway I can't ping out.
Am I completely misunderstanding the purpose of a NIC bridge?
Trying to establish a wireless connection from WD TV Live Plus unit to Westell 327W router using an AirLink 150 adapter. The media player sees my network and seems to have a good signal, but keeps telling me "limited or no connectivity." The media player (with adapter) is about 20 feet from the router with direct line-of-sight.Also, 3 other Wi-Fi devices having no problem connecting anywhere in the house.Power down/power up, move adapter to alternate USB port, re-try connection multiple times.
I'm currently staying at a marriott in NYC and at night after work the wireless access becomes awful. As a work around I've plugged the ethernet into my apple airport express and launched my wireless network as usual.Things are all fine and dandy for the first hour or so of browsing or watching netflix. But then it seems to lock up and I lose connection. I haven't seen any caps on data transfer that would explain it but is there something else I should be looking at? The fact that it works (albeit for a limited time), is a good sign I think. I'm mostly using it for my ipad to watch netflix etc.
So you've got broadcast networks - Ethernet, PPP networks such as serial & T1/E1 and then youve got Non-broadcast multi-access links such as Frame relay and ATM. I understand the concepts of each. That's not the problem.My question is, is it possible create a broadcast network (Ethernet) but also connect a router to another router via a PPP connection? Say to a specific branch for example. Just curious if you can use multipule link types.
I have to use a single network connection to provide LAN / WAN to a computer and an Apple TV.Is it better to use a network bridge or internet connection sharing?One connection is Gigabit and the other is Ethernet. If I use a bridge will it be degraded to 100Mbs?
I have a Sony SMP-N100 streaming media player that I'd like to attach my old Buffalo Gigabit Linkstation (HD-HG400LAN) NAS via the USB ports that are available on each device. They each have USB A female ports, so I need a USB cable with A-male connectors on each end, right?Should it work?

I have a PC network in house using a netgear router. One of the PC is cable-connected to the router and the other using wireless network adapter. Now I have a Sony Blueray player which support network connection. How do I connect it to the network?
I own a Panasonic DMP-BD80 Bluray player. It has both an ethernet connection and a USB port. I'd like to add the Bluray player to my wireless network but I don't know what equiptment to buy or how to install it.
I've bought a D-Link DIR-615 Wireless N Router. I have a SONY BDP-S370 Blu-ray player with a LAN socket.
I have my Dell Inspiron laptop working on Windows 7 (with LAN socket and wireless N card). I have a HTC Desire phone. I use my HTC Desire as a WI-Fi hotspot to connect to the internet.
I would like to plug the router to the Blu-ray player so that I can use the internet connection broadcasted by my phone. I would also like to be able to access the contents of my laptop on the Blu-ray player through the wireless router.
I have an e1200 Linksys router hooked up and working well, a wired connection to my first computer a wireless connection to my second (laptop) in the basemen and to my HDTV. My question is what Linksys device would I need to enable me to get a wireless connection in the basement to then hardwire connections to my Blue-Ray player and my HK AVR-3650.
I have been involved in the Networking of a museum with a set of "Show" computers which display video, and for this reason cannot have anti virus installed becuase of the performace hit, and also the risk of pop-ups on the videos. They do however need to be connected to the internet as some are interactive and allow people to send simple emails, and they all need to allow remote support when things go wrong.It seems the networking was not thought out very well initially, and there is a single wireless router which serves the staff and public on a secured wireless network, but also serves the "Show" machines via a wired connection from one of its ports, which then connects to a master switch which serves the show machines.Now the wired and wireless is on the same network, and everything shares the same IP subnet (192.168.1.xxx), and this is not a good situation in terms of the securuty of the show machines on the wired network. So I need to work out a way to totally separate the wireless network (which will be very prone to people opening viruses in their emails etc), from the wired network (which will be the show machines which wont be touched by anyone).
I want to achieve this in the simplest and easiest way, and have been reading about the possibility of setting up a second wired router behind the current wireless one, with a different subnet IP address, to which the "Show" machines could be connected. The WAN port on this second router would connect to a LAN port on the wireless router, and thus the show machines could get their internet, but separated from the dangerous wireless network.Does this sound like a sensible start? Will the fact that the wired router (and show machines) are on a completely different subnet to the wireless router (and wireless devices), mean that the wired network will be protected? Or do I need to do more? And is this likely to work?
I have practically NO knowledge of networking! So I've been tearing my hair out trying to get this darn thing sorted but to no avail.So, I've bought a Samsung BD-E5500 blu-ray player which has internet capability either through Ethernet or a Samsung wireless adapter. I am not willing to spend an extra £40-£70 on an adapter and obviously don't relish the idea of running a very long cable to my router upstairs. However the general concensus is that it's possible to take a cable out of the Ethernet and into a wireless AP or router, using it as a bridge to the main wireless router. So I have tried this and failed, of course not having a clue as to what I'm really doing. I have a Netgear ME102 access point which the player can't seem to get on the network with at all and also I have tried using a Belkin F5D7632 wireless router. Now, with the Belkin router the player does say that it can access the network, however it says that it cannot access the internet. The wireless router that I have upstairs is an O2 Wireless Box 3.
I recently purchased the Magnavox MBP5130/F7 Blue-Ray player. I have been trying to get the player to connect to my wireless network so that I can stream Netflix. I am using a Linksys router. It seems to be a similar problem to the one that Adie of Texas was experiencing. I looked through that thread and did the same things but still cannot get it to connect to the internet. It will connect to the wireless network but will not connect to the internet. The first night I purchased it I some how got it to connect and it updated. Since then I have been out of luck.
I have the E1000 Linksys Router and I am using a network cable to connect to my Sony Blu-ray BDP-S370. When I watch HULU through the player it kills the entire internet connection for all PCs. I have to unplug the router in order to restart it. Everything will also work just fine until the next crash.Here's the thing, I'll watch a bit of the show and see the commercials and the router will only crash when it comes back to the show. If I watched 100 commercials they would not crash, but as soon as it returns to the show CRASH. Restart and we watch again.
I'm trying to set up a network for a friends small office so we can share files between each of the computers.i have tried to do it through the workgroup but with no luck as some can see the other machines and some cant?

I have set the network discovery to on in W7 & Vista and and ran the network wizard in XP At the moment the vista and W7 machine can see each other but i get and error saying cannot access //(computer name)with the W7 and XP machines i can send a file when i type in the ip address (//192.168.1.?) into the W7 search bar but the XP computer is not shown in the network folder?
I have a media player on my home network, which consists of 3 desktop pcs (1 xp home, 1 win 7 home p, and 1 win 8 pro) and 2 nas boxes. Nothing is wireless, all cabled. All pcs can talk to each other and the nas boxes, all have internet access.Problem is when I try to access pc files with my media player. It can access the nas boxes and the xp pc fine, but when i attempt the win 7 or 8 pcs it asks for ausername/password. The win 8 pc has both, but the media player wont accept them, and the win 7 pc has never had a password. I tried putting a password on the win 7 pc, but the media player rejects the user and pw.
I am unable to see my network media player (wired CAT6 or wireless) using the SAMBA Share feature. My UPNP works fine. I do not have this issue when I am using the Linksys WRT54G or a Netgear WNDR3700 (I returned it to give the E3000 a try) - so I know all my share persmissions and device firewall is turned off. How do I get it to work with the E3000? I want to be able to transfer and stream media files to my media player using SAMBA. Usually my network media player automatically detects SAMBA Servers/Devices and adds it to its list for me to access. But when I use the E3000 that is not the case.
So i'm new to this sort of thing i am building up 2 gaming pc Windows 7 so while i have both for a few days i would like to network them so that when i want to play a car racing game via lan the other pc will detect itone gaming pc is mind the other my fren so until i deliver it to him i have it for a few days so i wanted some practice in thisso i have a WIF arris modem with 4 Ethernet ports so both sys will be connecting through cablesi would like a step by step guide as to how to go about doing this creating domains et
I'm starting college in the fall and will be living in the dorms on campus. I want to have a "private network" setup within the university's network in my dorm room so my and my roommate's phones and iPads can still find my Apple TV, file sharing and network drives are still possible, and I can easily set up my network printer. Obviously, I don't want to lose Internet connectivity. Can I use NAT to accomplish this without losing Internet connection through the university?
how the sysops will hate me if they find me, I know this. It's not for malicious use, only for ease of use of my devices.
This may be totally off base, that's why I'm asking if this will work before I try it. I have an old WRT54G I would like to use if its capable, if not I'll buy a new one but I'm trying to avoid that. Here's what I'm thinking:
My router plugged into the University's Ethernet port in my room (for this setup do I use a LAN port or the WAN port on the router?) DHCP disabled, all devices static IP On the "Advanced Routing" tab: "Router" mode, not "gateway" mode What should my destination LAN ip be? Gateway? LAN & Wireless or WAN?
Switch connected to the router
Devices connected to the switch or connected wirelessly Should my gateway and DNS on each device be the host address assigned to my router?
I am having a problem in which when ever I check "Computer" later on in the day, one of the network drives is duplicating itself over and over using a different drive letter each time. By the end of the day if untouched I can have approx 20 of them!To give you more information about the scenario, the computer is on Windows 7 pro, it is on a domain in which the server is 2008 r2, there are 2 network drives in total (only one is duplicating), the only 2 changes I recall that may have caused it is box.net is running on the server syncing all content on the networks drives and a new printer has been added on the network.
Alrighty, a little misdirected here. been reading docs for a little while and experimenting around maybe someone can point me in the right direction, How to you create a Guest Network in IOS Zone Firewall. For some reason Cisco, while using the term DMZ, applies differently on their routers than it does on their ASA's. I know how to do this on ASA's all day long however on the router it is a little different story.
i have been wanting to do this LAN sharing thingy for a while now.so here's the deal.i wanna do is setup our PC's so we could create a network of our own and share files just like in LAN but not over the internet.its kinda like we would on a Homegroup in win7.also have a few more PC's on different ISP's.can they be added to the network too?
I'm having trouble setting up a wireless internet connection for my computers, I connected the patch cable from my modem to a wireless router, then connected to that network with a usb for my computer.I was able to connect to the network, but couldn't seem to actually get into the internet. Is there any solutions to this?
When doing ipconfig /all, the message I get is:
Windows IP Configuration Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : Victors Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . : Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Hybrid IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No
I just got done running CAT 6 wire's into different rooms and placing jacks on the wall which all works correcting going into the patch panel. The problem I am having is that the Access Points on the ceiling I decided to make it a little easier and use regular network cable and cut one end off and place it into the patch panel the same way as all the jacks. The AP's are POE and they are just not getting on the network. Do I need to do something different for this cable?The way I punched all the wall jacks and all the cables to the patch panel is by using section B on the jack so because of me cutting a cable and leaving one end on, should I use A or is there something else I should do?
I was in a pub the other day. When I tried to use their wireless I was directed to a webpage to enter the password.I am a web designer and want to make a funky login page, not for a user ID. Just to enter the password to my wireless.How do I do this? Im not aiming to make my system more secure.
I have a wired DLink DGL-4100 as my main router and DHCP server. Attached to this, I have a hard-wired Linksys WRT610N which is acting as a dual-band access point. All are on network 192.168.1.0/24.I would like to create a second "guest" wifi network using a spare DLink DIR655 router. Guest clients should have access to Internet but absolutely NO access to machines and resources on the 192.168.1.0/24 network.I connected the DLink DIR655 WAN port to one of the Linksys LAN ports (since it is basically a switch). I configured the DLink DIR655 with LAN IP 192.168.2.1, activated its DHCP to give out 192.168.2.100-105. I set the DLink DIR655 WAN Internet Connection Type as Dynamic IP (DHCP). The DLink DGL4100 assigns an IP to the DIR655 on the WAN side (e.g. 192.168.1.200).With this setup, wireless clients on the DLink DIR655 2.0/24 network get assigned an IP on the 2.0 network. They can access the Internet. However they can still see all the 1.0/24 clients. how come the networks aren't isolated?How should I set this up properly?Do I need to use the DMZ setting on the DLink DGL4100?I know I could get rid of the Linksys and use the Guest Access feature on the DLink DIR655. However I would like to use the Linksys for its dual band feature.
