I am trying to connect my tv to my wireless network and I was able to find the network and enter the password. It then told me to do a connection test which the status is Warning
Home Network Only.
Gateway or DNS is invalid.
Or Router does net exist in network.

Any ideas what I should do?

Sounds for me like troubles with the router.

Which one do you use ?

Just an idea:
Check whether the web access is restricted with MAC filters in the router.

I have a D-Link 601.

MAC filtering is off. The tv's MAC address shows up on the router as a connected device. My smartphone, laptop, and Xbox don't have problems connecting to it.

Try resetting the router so every device on your home will be able to connect all at the same time. http://imagicon.info/cat/12-19/vbulletin-smile.gif

good point :)

Also I'd try to set the router to a fixed broadcast channel. (7 or higher)

Call the Philips Support by phone or chat if that doesn't help

Thanks for the help. I ended up having to disable the firewall on the router and manually enter the ip address and DNS info on the tv.
