Netflix not working on a LG BD300
« on: February 04, 2009, 12:10:40 AM »

I can't get the LG to stream Netflix, I searched the forum, and one suggest for an XBOX 360 to disbale SPI I did that hoping it work. I even tried puttin the LG on the DMZ, it does not work. The LG is on a wired connection so I don't see there is an issue with the connection, I know it has to be the router doing something funky, as everything else works.

I forgot to mention, running 1.15 firmware. Aside from the DMZ I also tried to reserve the IP for it, and manually set the LG to that IP. What happened was the same thing as a Dynamic IP on the LG, it would show a connection for internet, but then disconnect.

I get the menu for Netflix, but it seems the connection is lost soon afterwards, what can I do to fix this.

Very disappointed.

DGL4500 firmware 1.15 and I have the same problem with the BD300 just can't connect to netflix for streaming.  I also tried everything with the router with no success.  D-Link fix this problem please or else it's going in the garbage.

The bd300 gives me a "cannot connect to internet error". I'm currently using my zyxel router with no problems and the settings where set up the same.

I have the Zyxel router also, amazingly not actually the LG works with the router, with the D-Link not at all.

The good:
 Intuitive and responsive browser interface; Gigabit LAN and WAN; excellent range; easy to setup; Network Activity Display offers quick access to a variety of network information; preset with a lot of settings for special services and applications, including games.

The bad:
 Random reset during heavy load.


The bottom line:
 The D-Link DGL-4500 GamerLounge Xtreme N Gaming Router almost succeeds for home networking and hardcore gamers. It bears a few flaws, among which is a random reset during heavy load that might be the deal breaker.


Is this why NETFLIX won't work with the DGL-4500?? If this is the case, it indeed is a deal breaker! Someone from D-Link please let me know what is going on, I spent as much on this D-Link as I did for this Blu-Ray player with Netflix.

I'm checking in to the stream type for that service. I'm guessing it's RTSP, but I could be wrong. If it is wrong, I'll need to do more research. If it is RTSP, we may have a firmware issue.

Also have you tried unchecking the RTSP alg in the Advanced Firewall section?

I just brought over a Samsung BD-2550, same problem as the LG. I was hoping it was the LG at fault, but it seems it's something with the router. I am sure now, how is it two different netflix players will not work, but with a straight connection from the modem.

I had to "dumb down" my DIR-655 router by re-installing version 1.11 of the firmware. Versions 1.21 and 1.20 would not work. Now Netflix works fine again.

How do you downgrade the DGL-4500? I'm on 1.15, and I tried installing the original retail, I think it was 1.02 that it came with.

We're still waiting for a fix for the rtsp reboot when streaming from livenewscameras.com which was reported months ago. ???
