Blu Ray no longer accessing internet

Six months ago I bought an LG LHB953 Blu Ray player.  I have enjoyed the streaming features for Netflix and Youtube but yesterday I lost the capability to play them.  All connection are good, I reset the player and when I try to set up my Netflix account, it shows the local network is good but no internet connection.  I have a Netgear N600 router and a Scientific Atlanta DPC2100 modem from Comcast.  I have come to really enjoy my Netflix streaming, I hope someone can help.

Went into the setup menu.  Used the Others menu and clicked on Initialize and then Factory Set.  That did the trick.  I have no idea what caused the problem in the first place, but hopefully this will help someone else down the line.

Re: Blu Ray no longer accessing internet

Netflix was experiencing issues with their cloud solution (AWS) yesterday, which caused a major outage. This could be why it started happening to you yesterday.
