Daughter in law logged into her Netflix account on our smart tv in lounge over Christmas, it worked then and works now.
loved it so much, went and bought a smart tv for our snug. Connected to same BT Infinity.
Netflix would not connect, error NW-2-5 although all other channels e.g. You Tube connected fine. Went through tv company's tech help, resulted in unable to connect took tv back after doing the usual, powered off Hub 5, reset, turned off BT Parental Control and deleted it.
Researched and bought Roku3. Connected it to the same BT Infinity Hub 5. Exactly the same error message but occasionally ALSO get ui-800-3 (%MSL_INTERNAL_CODE%). Went through to Netflix tech help. Did the usual, powered off Hub/Roku3, reset Hub etc.
All channels work but Netflix on the 'snug' tv with Roku3 will not connect. Netflix tech help said there was only one solution left and that was to go through to my internet service provider and ask for a DNS reset to rest home network and refresh all connections.
Did call BT helpline and they explained that they don't deal with this and that I would need to go through to BT TechExpert. They could not give me a phone number just web address. I went there but it appears that this is a subscription service. £8/£10 per month. Not that I tried, but I bet you can't go just for 1 month!!
I looked up Hub management and disconnected and reconnected the DNS settings and changed channel.
Nothing has changed. Can anyone help?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If the other TV in the lounge works ok, its a tv problem. Are they both connected via Ethernet or wireless?
Welcome to this user forum.
This is a common problem.
Which smart TV do you have?
Thanks for the reply.
Both connected wirelessly.
Lounge tv is LG Smart tv. Snug - the new smart tv that was returned was a Celcus Smart tv. The old one I am now using is a Sony (made Smart by using a Roku3.
I would try connecting via Ethernet. You could try something like these if you didn't want to run a cable http://www.shop.bt.com/mini-sites/connected-home/broadband-extenders
I assume you have turned off smart setup on the hub.
If its now the RoKu you are using, then there is a thread relating to that about turning BT Protect off as well.
Many of these types of devices either use Google DNS, or other DNS servers which BT Protect will stop.
Yo may be able to alter the network settings on the Roku so it uses the DNS from the home hub.
