samsung bluray says connected, then no connection

Specs: Windows 64
I bought a used Samsung Bluray, BDP1500 I think. I've gone through all the network setup instructions and it tells me I'm connected, but then when I try to play Pandora it says there is no network connection

The ethernet connection on it is only for downloading firmware upgrades for it, nothing else. As clearly stated in the features description here:

Gee Phil, way to be condescending, I feel great now! I don't recall saying I was using an Ethernet cable, on account of the fact that I wasn't. I did, however, state that it was purchased used, and as such didn't come with a features description. Enjoy the single life, thanks so much for your time. BU- BYE!

When someone gives their help freely you should be a little more grown up than to be gratuitously rude to them. You mentioned network setup so it is only sensible to assume that your problem is with the network connection.

Ungracious posts like yours make me wonder why anyone bothers to try and help others.

So how is the Samsung networked; and to which network are you trying to connect?

Does it use wifi, bluetooth, quantum field sub-strata protocol, or what?

Lets assume your device is connected wirelessly (which given your scathing response appears to be), and you are notified that you are indeed connected to the wireless LAN, there are a couple of possibilities why you have no external connectivity.

Incorrect passwords (wireless encryption key) can cause this. I have seen many devices that appear to be connected to a home network be denied Internet access. Check this. Look at case sensitivity and characters like O & 0 that might cause confusion.

MAC address filtering can also throw you a curve ball so look at this also.

Edit: And wireless protocols. Is the player compatible with the modem / router. It is possible that if the player is old that it doesn't support a newer encryption technology.

The BD-P1500 doesn't have Wi-Fi, just an Ethernet port which - as has already been said - is purely for software updates.

"I bought a used Samsung Bluray, BDP1500 I think"

You think? We need to know the exact model number. The BDP-1500 doesn't appear to be a smart device so if you're seeing Pandora as an option, you likely have a different player.

Perhaps not entirely inappropriate in this situation if one considers the buyer's attitude, based on the initial post and his subsequent response?

"caveat emptor" comes to mind...
