Sony BDP470 - used to connect to network, now doesn't.

A few months ago I successfully used my Sony BDP 470 to connect (via USB wireless) to my router and watch Netflix, Youtube and the usual.

In the interim, I unplugged the USB wireless device and didn't use the player to connect to the network.

Now I've started it up again, updated the firmware, did the connections, checked all the necessary keys/passwords and such, and while the player shows I'm connected to the network and shows a signal strength, I can't connect to anything on the Internet - not Netflix, Youtube, Pandora, nothing. It just says "Network Connection Error" each time.

What's going on? Is the signal strength too low? (it's 59%-65% all the time)

Never mind... I fixed my own problem:

Rebooted the cable modem, and allowed router to reset. Attempted Netflix connection again. Voila.

(should have thought of that first...)
