High Speed Internet

Connecting a Blu-ray player to your wireless network Many new Blu-ray players feature Internet access, where you can use additional online features and services. Connecting a Blu-Ray player to your home network is easy!

Note: Using your Blu-ray player online, and connecting it to your home theater or television is not supported by Verizon Technical Support. Any questions regarding usage and setup should be directed to the manufacturer of your Blu-ray player.

To connect your Blu-ray player to a home network:

1. Use manufacturer instructions to connect your Blu-ray player to your home theater.

2. Determine if the player uses Ethernet or WiFi to connect to a home network.
Using WiFi to connect to your home network:
Using an Ethernet cable
If your Blu-ray player has a wireless connection available (also known as WiFi, or 802.11), you'll need your network's SSID, encryption type (WPA2, WPA or WEP) and encryption key.

You can find this information one of three ways:

  • Review the sticker on the back of your router or gateway. The sticker displays the SSID and encryption key information. By default, some routers and gateways are configured as WPA. You may have to choose WEP if the device you wish to connect is not accepting WPA mode.
  • Use In-Home Agent to view your settings: You can access In-Home Agent on a computer that is already connected to Verizon Online. Within In-Home Agent, go to the Networking tab and select Retrieve SSID and WEP/WPA key.
  • Log in to your router or gateway from a computer already connected to your wireless network. The instructions you follow depend on the type of router or gateway you use to connect to Verizon High Speed Internet.
Use the Ethernet cable provided by the Blu-ray player manufacturer to connect your player to your Verizon-provided High Speed Internet gateway or to your own networking equipment, such as a home router.

If you do not have a High Speed gateway, you can order one from

Please note that Verizon Technical Support does not provide support for the use of, or connecting your Blu-ray player to your home theater. Please contact your Blu-ray player manufacturer for support.

After connecting your DVD or Blu-ray player, use a digital camera or mobile phone to take pictures of the back panels of each piece of connected equipment.
