I have a Samsung BD-P1500 Blu-ray player that has the ability to be updated and access Bd-Live content through the internet. I'm thinking that I need some sort of bridge, i.e., receive the network wirelessly and have an ethernet port to connect to the player. Anyone with experience? Any other thoughts? Purchase recommendations (pro and con)?
First make sure you have the most current Firmware for your player you can find it here. The model you listed in BD-Live ready. And from what I have seen is you need to put on the latest firmware to get it working. It probably activates the network port.
If that does not work try to set the player up with a static IP. You may be running into a dhcp issue.
