Connecting your LG Blu-Ray player to the Internet opens up a new world of entertainment. Depending on the functions built into your player, you can access BD-Live content to go deeper into movies that you purchase or buy, stream content from Internet sites like Netflix, Hulu or YouTube -- or even use your Blu-Ray player as an interface to access media stored on your computer to play back on your home entertainment system. If you're making a wired network connection, you just need to plug an Ethernet cable into the back of your Blu-Ray player and turn the player off and on. Wireless connections require a bit more work, if your LG player supports them.

Making a Wireless Connection

Step 1

Press the "Home" button on your remote control to return to your player's home screen.

Step 2

Use the left or right direction buttons to highlight the "Setup" option and press the "Enter" key.

Step 3

Scroll down to "Network" and press "Enter" to select it.

Step 4

Scroll to "Connection Setting" and press "Enter." After reading the description, press "Enter" again to start the process.

Step 5

Scroll to the network ID for your home's wireless network and press "Enter" to select.

Step 6

Use the on-screen keyboard to enter your network's passcode, if it has one. Highlight "OK" and press "Enter" when you are done.

Step 7

Select the "Dynamic" IP mode, unless you know your Static IP, select "Next," then press "Enter." Once your network settings appear on screen, select "Close" then press "Enter" to finish setting up your wireless connection.
