How do I connect Smart TV to new wireless net?

by gtrjimaz / December 27, 2012 1:05 AM PST

I've got a Samsung 55' LED Smart TV and Blu Ray DVD player and I have been able to access the internet through either with my wireless network. But since I installed a new wireless router, the Smart TV and DVD player are now not connected to the internet? How to I re-connect these devices to my new wireless network?

Head to it's network setup and change from wireless to wired, OK it then go back in and set it back to wireless to have it start again.
