Hi louiegg,

We have discovered that only in extremely unusual circumstances a connectivity issue arises between Samsung Smart TV's released in 2011 and other connected devices. We assure our customers that our Smart TV's are safe to use. We will release a previously scheduled software patch in January 2013 to further strengthen Smart TV security. We recommend our customers to use encrypted wireless access points, when using connected devices.

Can you help?!
by Becksbarr7 / December 28, 2012 4:35 AM PST

Hello, I am having problems with my Samsung TV and would really appreciate some help as I have yet to recieve any.

Please see my thread below:

Hello Everyone,

I purchased an Samsung UE46ES6300 Smart TV for my Boyfried for Christmas & we are struggling to connect it to our WiFi to use the features. Obviously I went through the procedures - Network settings, found my WiFi, typed in my Network password & unfortunately states: 'Unable to connect to the Wireless Router'. Taking into account my Virgin Media Router is directly next to my TV, I cannot see what the problem is?! The Wireless & Internet is 100% working as we have other devices running of it - I-pad, Laptop, Phones etc!

I have been reading about this issue on the Web & it seems as though its not only me whom has encounterd this problem!

Just a quick thread to seem if anyone can help in solving my problem & can help me in enabling me to connect our new Smart TV to the Internet.

Your help will be much appreciated.

Many thanks,
