Samsung TV UN55F8000 Wifi network connection keeps dropping

by 8waverider / November 5, 2013 12:57 AM PST

I just bought a Samsung UN55F8000 TV
The TV itself is nice but the wifi capability is quite disappointing considering the price of the TV.

The connection keeps dropping after a few minutes...

My home network via linksys EA 3500 works great and none of my other devices, Iphone, Ipad experiences any issues.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

You get the router inside 20 feet for testing. A TV is not any of those devices and does not have the WiFi range these have.

Unplugged power and reconnected and rBOOM. Connected. After full day of trouble shooting the router, firmware releases 1 hr on phone with a sometimes obnoxious and tiring Samsung rep and tv still not finding my ip and network connection failed messages last
Night the wife says unplug from the wall the tv, and cable box wait and plug back in. Worked.
