    I have a Panasonic BluRay DMP-BDT220 and I cannot get it connected to the internet.

    When we enter the router's IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS, secondary DNS, and we perform a connection test, we get 'Connection test failed. No reply from host. Please check the connection or settings of the router'.

    How can we connect it to the internet?

    We are total n00bs, so a detailed answer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    err, why are you setting ip manually? you should just leave it on dhcp and put in your ssid and password.

    Agreed. Don't set ANY of the IP address information manually on the player. Set it to DHCP/Automatic and when the Panasonic establishes a connection with the router (you'll need to select or possibly type the router SSID name, and enter the security key/password) it will automatically get the correct IP address information from the router.

    Agreed DHCP makes the world a whole lot easier when connecting peripherals to a router especially for noobs. Why would you want to make it more difficult by entering it manually?....:) All you should have to do is turn on your blu-ray player and the router will connect automatically.

    Hi, thanks for your answer. However, I do not see any place for me to enter the SSID and the password. Furthermore, I'm not sure where to find the SSID.

    Thanks again. However, as explained above, there does not appear to be a connection between the BluRay player and the router, as there is nowhere to put the SSID and the security key/password.

    Hi, thanks for your answer. When I turn on the BluRay player it does not appear to connect to the router. I have tried various things, including entering the information manually, but nothing appears to work.

    So there's no option to search for access points?

    I don't think I've ever bought anything wireless that couldn't search for access points.

    Just to clarify: when we do 'Check Network Connection' it says

    1. Wireless setting: Pass
    2. IP address setting: Pass
    3. Connection to gateway: Pass

    and then it says

    Internet connection check is finished.

    -Connection to the Internet: Fail(Error code: B019)

    Connection test failed.

    Cannot find the server.(Error code: B019)

    Please check "Primary DNS" and "Secondary DNS"
    of "IP Address/DNS Settings" in Setup.

    I don't have that player.

    Is there a manual/automatic option?

    The brand of router is Linksys by Cisco. The model no.: WRT54G2 V1.5

    What happens when you use the option "search for wireless network"?

    We actually appear to be connected to the wireless network:

    "1. Wireless setting: Pass
    2. IP address setting: Pass
    3. Connection to gateway: Pass"

    and then it says:

    "Internet connection check is finished.

    -Connection to the Internet: Fail(Error code: B019)

    Connection test failed.

    Cannot find the server.(Error code: B019)

    Please check "Primary DNS" and "Secondary DNS"
    of "IP Address/DNS Settings" in Setup."

    I assume you see your router's name, and then select it. And what happens after that?

    May I suggest trying it with an ethernet cord connected directly to your router. If it connects that way then your wifi section of the blu ray player is probably not working correctly. That is if all other items on your wireless network connect ok via DHCP. Just a suggestion. Updating to the latest firmware is a good idea but if you cannot connect to the internet then you are screwed for doing that.

    This model has widespread wireless problems, and has had them for a while now. The latest firmware has only made the problem worse. This CNET user review is a good summary of the issues: CNET User Review

    Check out the poor reviews on Amazon as well: Amazon user reviews

    I'm assuming the people that haven't noticed the problem don't regularly stream wirelessly.
