Samsung smart tv wireless problem

by crg823 / July 3, 2013 3:19 AM PDT

Samsung smart tv:

model: UN46EH5300F

I bought it 3 weeks ago and worked perfectly, but after the latest update/maintenance, the internal wireless lan conection doesn't find any device... i already did a factory reset and nothing happened.

If someone knows the problem please help... Thank you

Sorry no. But

There are issues with some routers, hidden SSIDs and WiFi channels as well as the date and time settings. I know it's asking a lot but maybe it's something that can be dealt with here, if not call it in. If you can exchange the set, why not?

You said you did a reset but did you try changing to wired, click OK and then go back into the menu to select WiFi and see if that woke it up?

And again, be sure you're within 20 feet on the first setup or when in trouble.

I changed it to wired and work perfectly, but the problem still with the wireless... I dont think its the router because my laptop, cellular and my brother's tv (another brand tv) can connect via wireless without a problem... Before the maintenance, the wireless adapter was working fine.

And without details.

I can't proceed. I noted that such information about the WiFi channel matters along with distance. At this point call it in and hopefully they'll walk you through it again.

Hi crg823,

I'm sorry to hear about this. A few questions: which firmware version are you on? (You can check by pressing Menu > Support > Contact Samsung.)

Also, can you see wireless access points at all? You mentioned that you have a Smart Phone. Does it have a hot spot you can turn on? If so, check to see if the TV can see that at all?
