Why won't my Samsung Blu-Ray player connect to WiFi?

Troubleshooting Fundamentals Unplug your modem, router, and Blu-ray player and leave them powered off for at least 30 seconds, then plug in the modem and router and wait for them to completely power up before turning on the Blu-ray player and checking the Internet connection again. If you're still unable to connect, read on.

If you can see the SSID of the network but cannot connect to it, check that the security settings are correct. Most Wi-Fi networks are protected by a password, which ensures only those with this password can connect to the network. Users need to enter the correct password to access the network resources. If the network is open, anyone who knows its exact location will be able to connect to it.

Also make sure the cable from the Blu-ray player to the router is plugged in properly. If not, the player might be sending data directly to the router instead of through the modem, which would cause it to disconnect from the network.

Are there other devices connected to the same network as the Blu-ray player? If so, you might not be able to connect to the network because of interference caused by other devices operating on the same frequency.

If your Blu-ray Disc player is still not connecting to the network, try these steps: Reset Your Player

For certain models of Blu-ray players, such as the BDP-S370, resetting the player will remove all network connections and require you to reconnect to the network again. For other models, such as the BDP-B360, only the default network connection is removed; any other networks you may have previously connected to remain active. You can tell if your player is a BDP-S370 model by looking under the front panel near the power button. If the word "RESET" is printed in large red letters, then you have a BDP-S370.
