I am trying to connect my cable router to my blu ray player…

Customer Question
Good Day! I am...

Good Day! I am trying to connect my cable router to my blu ray player but it keeps giving me a failed internet service test.

Technician's Assistant: Can you describe your network setup (devices and cables used)?

Ethernet cable connected to the LAN from the Optimum Cable Router

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up?

Nothing. I just moved this week and am trying to get everything set up but this is giving me a bit of a hard time.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

A hard reset, unplugged, and disconnected everything and reconnected it back

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Network Expert to know before I connect you?

No I dont think so

Its a Samsung HT-BD1250. There isnt an error code. When I run the network connection test the MAC address, IP address, and gateway ping all check out but when it comes to the internet service test it does not pass. It reads "your network cannot operate properly"
Network Technician: Kris R, CCIE replied 11 months ago

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I do not. Its connect to port 2. I've tried switching between the four that are available but that didnt make a difference.
