Sony DVD/BlueRay with internet

Trying to set up Sony DVD/BlueRay with internet. Actually worked & connected fine for a long time BUT now is not finding our new gateway (xfinity router/modem/network combo). This is a wired connection, not WiFi.

Trying to start from scratch and the player wants these numbers:

(4 fields each)
IP Address
Subnet Mask
Default gateway
Primary DNS
Secondary DNS

Not finding all of these numbers when we log into the gateway. I can send a screenshot of the info I get from the router - but is giving that info a security risk?

Sony model number is bdp-s370. Other wired and WiFi connections work fine. We have tried switching the cable to different ports on the gateway but it doesn't light up when connnected to the DVD/BluRay. It lights up at both ends when it is connected to a laptop.

Hope someone can answer...but I've never had that issue with a wired connection. It's like it's automatically trusted. Are you sure there isn't a menu setting on the player of WiFi or Ethernet only?

Check pg 26 of your manual...looks like there may be a menu option since it says select this for this or that for that.

Manual is here...http://store.sony.com/wcsstore/SonyS...set-185224.pdf

It's been iffy since Day 1. No WiFi because it cost $300 as an add-on option available only from Sony.

I'm thinking for Netflix we might try one of those streaming players/digital multimedia devices available now https://www.google.com/shopping/prod...ed=0CGsQ8wIwAg

Well like I say the connection is fine, I've tested with a laptop. Don't need the connectivity part if I get another device that does the streaming. It's a superb disc player but I think we must have fried the internet port during one of our daily thunderstorms even though there's a surge protector.
