Jason :

Hello and thank you for your question today. My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.



I just want to be sure we are on the same page here. May I ask for you to clarify that you do wish to setup a proxy type setup for your player?

Is any other device setup that way on your network?

Customer :

i can change my laptop or my tablet to work off the proxy server under the LAN setting in the browers

Customer :

but i cannot seem to get the tv or bluray player to use that proxy IP once they have connected through the router

Jason :

Thank you for the update.

Jason :

Were you able to enter the Proxy information into the player itself?

Customer :

the available set boxes are: MAC Address/IP Address/Subnet Mask/Gateway/DNS server

Customer :

i thought it would be as easy as changing the IP address, but that appears to be the IP address for the device itself

Jason :

ok

Customer :

any thoughts about where to put the proxy IP ?

Jason :

Well..

Jason :

I do have thoughts, but the fact is that you won't be able to set it up this way with a proxy setup.

Customer :

i can set my proxy ip server to accept traffic from the device IP, but how do i get the gateway/modem to direct the device to that IP?

Customer :

can i use the spare router i have to make this work?

Jason :

Please, elaborate on how you wish this to work.

Customer :

i want the TV and blu ray to access their internet from the proxy server IP. I don't mind having them use the spare router dedicated to that proxy IP, but it all needs to still flow through the UVerse modem/gateway

Customer :

make sense?

Jason :

No, that does not make sense to me, yet.

Customer :

my home IP address is XX.XX.XX.X, i need my tv and blu ray to show have an IP address of ZZ.ZZ.ZZ.Z in order to fully function

Jason :

Oh...

Jason :

Do you have a server setup on your network at all?

Customer :

my own server? no.

Jason :

ok

Jason :

If you did, it would make this a whole lot easier.

Jason :

Simply put, the hardware that you have may not allow for this.

Customer :

it seems so easy within the browser LAN settings, can't be that hard, right?

Jason :

;)

Jason :

It is easy with the browser lan settings because it was built into the applicatin.

Jason :

application

Jason :

Who ever wrote the firmware for that player did not include those values because 99.999% of the time people don't need to use that.

Jason :

Would setting up one of the computers that do work with the proxy setup, so that it can re-route the Internet to the player?

Customer :

i see. any way to tell my spare netgear router to only access the internet through the proxy IP and then connect the devices to that router?

Jason :

So it would go Modem > Computer > Player

Jason :

If you have a $1,000 router, you may have access to that type of setup.

Customer :

how would the modem-computer-player setup work? does the player have to be hard connected to the computer?

Jason :

Is the player wireless or hardwired?

Customer :

i have it wireless now, but can ethernet it to the router if necessary

Jason :

ok

Customer :

or to the computer i guess

Jason :

Now..

Jason :

Is the computer that uses the proxy wireless or hardwired to the router?

Customer :

wireless

Jason :

Fantastic

Jason :

You could enable Internet Connection Sharing on the computer, plug the 2nd extra router into that computer, and wirelessly connect the player to that 2nd player.

Jason :

Are you familiar with this type of configuration?

Jason :

If not, may I remote into your system real quick and set this up for you?

Customer :

yes familar, can i bypass the router setup if I ethernet the player to the computer?

Jason :

Yes

Jason :

That is correct

Customer :

2 minutes

Jason :

If that is possible, that would be the best choice.

Jason :

ok.

Customer :

alright, ethernet connected computer to player and computer using proxy server

Customer :

need to tell player to talk to computer to get internet

Jason :

No

Jason :

You can just set it to obtain IP automatically on the player.

Jason :

Have you already setup Internet Connection Sharing on the computer?

Customer :

no...need to do that step...

Jason :

Yes you do

Jason :

Thank you

Customer :

in Win7 where is that?

Jason :

Or I can do that for you, if you wish.

Jason :

May I remote in and do this for you?

Jason :

If you do it incorrectly, you may mess up the Internet connection on the laptop.

Customer :

sure, but i'd like to see the steps so i can go back and forth

Jason :

Okay

Jason :

Thank you.
