Can't connect blu ray home theater system to network

Specs: Windows 7
I've tried everything possible to connect my blu ray player to my network. I've tried the auto setup, manual entry and cant come up with anything. I've followed all the instructions i can find on-line and i don't know if I'm overlooking something or what. I've got Philips blu ray home theater system and linksys wrt120n router

When the blu ray player looks for a network does it find your network? If you are not broadcasting your network ssid from your wireless router your blu ray player might not connect even if you type in the right password. Enable your ssid broadcast and try to coonect again.

Is your wireless network secured and if so what type of security are you using?

it picks up my network id, and ive got full signal. ive got wpa2 security. Ive had problems with espn3.com, watching live streaming ballgames. they said my ip address was set as business and not residential. i dont see why that would affect it but thought i should let you know that too

where exactly are you having the problems? It this a wireless network you are trying to connect your blu ray to? Are you able to connect then it cuts out? Are you streaming espn through your blu ray player? Just need more info.

It depends on the password encryption method you activated on your linksys router, some blu-ray home theater systems don`t have support for the newer technologies and cannot connect to the network. For example my home cinema system does not support WEP encryption, I also had to buy DVI to HDMI cable cable so I could watch movies.
