I have Verison FIO service and an Actiontec MI424WR-GEN2 wireless router.
Solved! Go to Solution.

#1 In the router go to Advanced -> IP Address Distribution.
#2 If the router's DHCP range is 192.168.1 (2-254), change that so that it is 192.168.1 (100-254)
#3 What is the current HTTP port that your Samsung Blu-Ray BD-C5500 is set to use?

I was not able to find information on the port used by the Blu-ray player for connecting to the internet.
The IP range was originally set from 2 to 254. I did try resetting the IP range but that didn't work. I returned the range back to 2 to 254.
I did three things that together seemed to solve the problem.
1. Upgraded the Samsung blu-ray firmware from version 1014 to 1015.4. The Samsung website has the firmware and instructions to load it using the USB port.
2. In the Actiontec router's admin window: -> wireless settings -> basic security settings, I turned on WEP.
3. In the blu-ray network setup, I used the WEP key to reconnect to the router instead of my WPA2 password.
4. Network tested fine and is now working.
My advise is to first check the firmware version and install the latest version manually if you have to.

For the browser it is port 80. Which pretty much is likely to be open. Are you talking the browser or a particular app. My Samsungs (4 of them) never had long term problem connecting to anything on the Internet except for apps that Samsung dropped support for. E.g. they dropped support for the Verizon app on some (all?) year versions of their players.
Did you change the default security level of the router?
And you really don't want to use WEP. Its almost like using no security since there are programs that can crack it in seconds. Go back to WPA2

On another note using WEP. If you are using an MI424WR Rev. F or newer, using WEP will decrease your wireless performance to that of Wireless G. That means you probably won't see more than 20Mbps Wirelessly. Whereas routers like the Rev. I can be capable of over 70Mbps with WPA2 security.
