Netgear N300 Wireless-N Router - Sony Bravia Internet - Settings

We just bough the new Sony Bravia Model: KDL-55HX800 with built in internet. When I do the network settings it finds my router name once I push the WPS button, but then on the next few steps it fails to fully set up. Do I need to change a setting in the router or on my computer so it will complete the setup?

Thanks,
Nikki

Doesn’t the Sony have the option to manually set wireless encryption?

I also have the same Netgear router with a Sony Bravia EX-700 series LEDTV. Same thing happened to me today. Tried to get connected wireless with the sony usb dongle and wired also. Would recognize the router but would not connect...I tried for almost 2 hours....when I had AT&T uverse with there home router it worked fine but now since I went to COX and this Netgear router it will not work. But my laptop and PS3 all connect flawless.
Any tips??

I heard that the Sony Google TV's wont recognize a netgear router so I wonder if the connection part of the Sonys is the same..?

Talked to Sony and Cox and noone can tell me any tips on how to fix it. Is there something on the netgear router I need to change?

Not sure how to set it up for a static IP...but I did get a Belkin N300 from a friend to try and as soon as I hooked it the Sony recognized it and all my tv internet apps worked perfect. The only problem was the Belkin was garbage for wireless internet on my laptop and phone. Pure Garbage! I switched back to the Netgear and now my internet is great again but no TV internet again! Has to be something with Sony and Netgear...

I did "auto" on all the IP settings. It sounds to me like the TV and the router aren't communicating correctly. Sony customer services was slow and did not help at all.
