Blu-Ray Player Can’t Network Properly

Subscriber Bruce Mowery wrote with a network problem, not directly a computer problem, but networking his Blu-Ray player:
Terry good morning. Can you help me with my problem? I’m trying to get my Panasonic Blu-ray player which has Wifi built in and Netflix. I’m trying to view Netflix movies.
I’m having a problem with the internet code number of my Net Gear G router. I’ve contacted Comcast, Netflix and they informed me to contact Net Gear. I did and they made things worse for my computer and I still wasn’t able to get the code after spending $120.
How can I find if I can the network code number.
I wrote back to Bruce to try to help. First, I checked to make sure that I understood what he meant by “the network code number.”
Assuming he mean the IP address (Internet Protocol address) of the Internet-side (WAN) of the network, and assuming that he’s using one of the more recent Netgear routers, I suggested that he use his web browser to log into his Netgear router by using his web browser to go to http://www.routerlogin.net/ , which his Netgear router will intercept. It will show the router’s “Netgear genie™” browser interface.
