Dave spent a lot of time on E-mail with me last night (I can't think
him enough).  We finally got the Sony Blu-ray player to connect to the
'net.  Here's his theory (explanation) and the cure.  I can't imagine
the average consumer trying to deal with this, but I guess anyone
running CeroWRT on their router is probably not the average consumer.

I still have the old player, will try to get it going sometime over
the weekend, to see if was the same problem/cure.

Dave Taht:

"What I think was happening was that it was getting a DHCP response
with the 224 netmask, and ignoring it, setting it to
internally, which meant that TCP requests outside your network would
not [come] back in. The [Sony] GUI rejected your attempt to set it."

> OK, I'm going to buy into the idea it doesn't like the default netmask.
> I don't see any traffic making it back to .85 from the outside world,
> notably the attempt to get the firmware in the screenshot below.
> Since upnp isn't a problem, try changing the guest wireless
> /etc/config/network entry here to:
> config 'interface' 'gw00'
>         option 'type' 'none'
>         option 'proto' 'static'
>         option 'ipaddr' ''
>         option 'netmask' ''
>         option 'ip6assign' '64'
> reboot the router, go back to dhcp for sony.
