Samsung Blu-Ray and Sasmung TV connect only occasionally

by freddy_mt / December 31, 2010 3:45 AM PST

I have a Samsung LED TV with Samsung's wireless dongle. I also have a Samsung Blu-Ray with Samsung's wireless dongle. They both have identical problems that are hinted at in the forums, and I believe i have also tried every fix listed for connection problem including purchasing a new router (was using Linksys, now 'N" DLink):

I can connect both devices to the wireless...occasionally. I usually have to wait at least five minutes after turning either device on to try to connect to the wireless. And then it MIGHT connect. If I try before 5 mins, it will not connect for the at least the next few days. I have seven wireless devices connected to my wireless with zero issues.

Any thoughts from the forums? Many thanks for taking the time to read this.

I've been fighting this issue for 8 months. I'm not digging in my heels. I'm being drug down the road by the horse. I've tried every new post that comes up as a solution. Wish I could say it's a distance issue, but remember those seven devices? Same distance. (about 25 feet).

thanks for the reply.

In reply to: Heels..

But did you follow the same ideas? I read you write about seven devices and then your post stopped and didn't write if you tried the Cnet Networking Forum ideas.

Again, I can't explain why some will not try it because they have working devices. I know this is hard stuff but I'll help where I can.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
