Rant: Sony BDP-S570 "Internet Connection Failed"

For those struggling with that error on that Blu-ray player...

Select Custom wireless network configuration, with:
IP Address something which no other device on your wireless network will have, say 192.168.1.111 (fiddle with the last number; try a random number between 150 and 254).
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.1.1
Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8 (Google's)
Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4

Apply those numbers. If it doesn't take, wait a couple minutes and try again.

Worked for me.

I was having this issue intermittently after powering up. All network status would be OK but would still get this message.

I turned off "quick start mode" under "system settings" and the issue has been resolved!

Thank you for this! I was struggling with my DNS settings and it was not obvious where to modify them. Your post fixed it instantly. Appreciate the help!

(btw, I still used auto DHCP for the IP address but specified the DNS settings and it worked fine.)
