That's an IP I found on another tech support blog...claimed to be the IP to use for the gaming adapter.
In the setup screen of the gaming adapter, the choices for the IP are either static (that's where I listed the IP I told you about) or an option called DHCP. Is DHCP the option I want to set it on "AUTO configuration?"
Okay, I selected DHCP and rebooted the gaming adapter. I plugged it back into the Sony Blu Ray player but it still says there's a network error and that it "cannot connect to the DHCP server." I plugged the gaming adapter back into my wireless router and then tried to login to the setup page using my computer browser at http://192.168.1.250/ which was the IP which allowed me to view the gaming adapter setup page previously. Now, however, my browser states that the page at http://192.168.1.250/ cannot be found. I assume that is because the DHCP setup has given in the device a new IP?
I unplugged the adapter from my wireless router and plugged it into my laptop using an Ethernet cable. Via my browser, I tried to log into http://192.168.1.250/ but it came back "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage." The lights on the adapter (while plugged in via Ethernet cable to my laptop) are as follows:
power - solid green
Ethernet - solid green
Wireless - blinking green
Security - solid green
The connection light on my Ethernet port to my laptop is lit.
I reset, unplugged and plugged back in and attempting to log onto http://192.168.1.250/. Received same result: "Internet Explorer cannot open the webpage." I unplugged the adapter from my laptop and plugged it into my wireless router via the Ethernet cable. I again attempted to log onto http://192.168.1.250/ and was able to open up the adapter's setup page.
Since the adapter was reset, the security is again showing as disabled and the IP is back on static at 192.168.1.250 with subnet 255.255.255.0 and gateway 192.168.1.1.
Page 9 wants me to begin at Step 2 of the setup program. I can't get beyond Step 1, however, because the setup program says it is "unable to locate a gaming adapter on [my] network." It will not let me skip the part of the set up in order to get to Step 2.
